Ford 302 Boss Returns in 07
Ford Boss 302 returns for 2007
(autoinsidernews) - Ford announced today at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show that its legendary 5.0L 302 cubic inch V8 engine will return for aftermarket. Ford will produce a new line of BOSS 302 crate engines, which will go on sale in early 2007. The automaker also unveiled a custom Mustang at SEMA showcasing the engine, reports Trend.
Debuting in 1969, the original BOSS 302 powered a limited production Mustang model sold for two years, which was known as the BOSS 302. The Mustang got its name from the legendary engine that powered the car to a Sports Car Club of American Trans-Am series win in 1970.
The new Ford Racing Performance Parts BOSS 302 line was designed to fill a
need for engines built from a block stronger than regular production 302 blocks but more affordable than full race-prepped blocks. The new BOSS 302 block features greater strength than most race blocks and offers a street-capable cooling system design, something that race specific blocks tend to sacrifice.
The new BOSS engines range in displacement from 302 to 363 cubic-inches. Entry engines are rated at 340 and 345 hp, with higher performance versions, including Ford Racing’s “Z”-head equipped 302 and 347 cubic-inch engines rated between 360 and 450 hp. The BOSS series is topped by a 500-hp 331 cubic-inch engine. The suggested retail price for the BOSS 302 block is $1,759, with full BOSS engines ranging from $4,650 to $10,000 for the 500-hp BOSS 331 cubic-inch engines. All come with a 12 month/12,000 mile limited warranty.
