    13 Boss 302 VS 16 RS

    Big Brembo's, 19" inch wheels, 6 speed manual, 444 hp @ 7500 rpm, 380 torque, Recarro's, adjustable shocks and struts, heavy sway bar, strut tower brace, front splitter, quad exhaust ,Torsen limited slip differential, and yes it's stock.....once I drove the Boss 302 I had to buy one. I loved my RS but I got seduced by the old school muscle and growl of the 302!! It handles very well and after reading lots of reviews and videos I got hooked! It's a very capable car. Hard to compare with the RS because I haven't had it long enough but I can tell you that it's a beast in a different way. I will miss my RS and will probably seek out another one someday but for now......

    Hey Carver welcome to the new insanity that is the Boss 302! I am lucky enough to have an RS and a 2013 Laguna. The Bosses are such exciting cars to drive and the engine alone is worth the price of admission. Just be very, very careful in the cold and/or wet. Since you are used to the incredible all weather capability of an RS, the Boss will feel a whole lot different and you have to be a lot softer on the gas pedal.

    Make sure you head over to the best Boss 302 forum (it specializes in Track Mustangs like the Boss and GT350).

    Nice pickup and congrats. Love the Boss Mustangs. When I was looking to buy a 13/14 GT500 came real close to buying a 2013 Black Boss Laguna Seca. Great car. I ended up buying
    a 2014 GT500 but I am always looking at the used 2013 Boss LS's. The Bosses are holding their values well just like the GT500's are also. I am an old school muscle car fan myself
    and have owned many. I bought an RS mainly for the all wheel drive and the corner carving that it does exceptionally. It has great power but not quite like the Shelby. They are two
    different type animals. Have fun with that Boss.

    Great buy!

    I was looking at one when I was considering my RS last year.

    I need my 4 doors.

    Have fun with the new sleigh!

    Nice buy! My buddy had a ‘13 gt track pack with a good selection of mods, and I had my ’14 ST also with choice mods. We used to swap cars for weekends all the time as both cars were great but offered a different driving experience. I loved my ST but definitely felt more mature in the GT. Now that I have the RS though I dunno. I’d love to 1v1 them

    Thanks guys, for all the positive feedback. This is a really great community. I will continue to lurk !! I hope there will be another RS in my future so I still need to keep up with the forum from time to time!! Also interested to see how the Boss will hold up against the RS at the track....I'm thinking they are close.

    My dad has a Boss and it's a beast. If I was to DD a Boss with the race key, I would certainly kill myself. Enjoy the new toy!
