Better engine, suspension, lighter, and more interior options for way less money. I think boss owners just got screwed by ford.
Blackvette...you have flow #'s for the new GT head already? post them up.
Heads are also revised and better flowing, plus 2mm more lift on exhaust side. I agree on the IM though.. definitely the bottleneck, but who knows how much. I'm surprised they didn't up the redline a few hundred RPM. I'm guessing its because it won't matter with the new IM. I think its going to be close to the boss as-is, but an IM swap should really make it shine and will probably be the hot mod and show bigger gains then exhaust changes.
Then again it may be putting down similar #'s as the boss at the wheels and making up for the drivetrain losses by making more at the crank. I'm really curious to see advertised vs rated #'s.
Exactly... Look at the 03/04 Mach 1! It held its value pretty well...:rollseyes
The Boss will drop as well unless it's bubble wrapped. 8000 units is pretty far from rare.
once motortrend bust the nuts of a boss with the new gt... it will be all over these boards and other boards.. prices will drop.. only reason 03 cobras have held on so well is because power wise they could not be beat till now.
As with all new cars, depreciation is going to happen to the current gen. As far as 11-14 GTs sinking through the floor, this is not certain. A lot of assumptions are being made but lets not forget the many possible variables: 15 design is controversial, price point of the 15 GT is unclear with the 4 banger in the mix, old s197 4.6 GT's still go for high teens. Fact is, right now I can still sell it for just a few grand less than what I paid. Depreciation has not been too bad on the s197's thus far. Vettes, all BMWs ect... all lose tens of thousands of dollars of value from their original price point in just a few years time. The margin of loss is less on a s197 V8.
