Default 2012 GT vs BOSS Equipment Listing

I've been looking around the internet and the forums for a few days now to try to find a comprehensive list of all the parts that are added to a GT to make it a BOSS. I'm looking to upgrade my '12 GT in a few places, but would like to pick and choose from whats out there. If anyone has a list or knows of even a handful of the upgrades it would be appreciated. I'm looking for any and all parts from oil coolers to manifolds to the interior.

It's A LOT of stuff. It's pretty much a different car. Bespoke suspension, bespoke short block, bespoke cylinder heads, manifold and cams, exhaust, interior, cooling system, front end bodywork, paintwork and striping. It's a comprehensive soup to nuts upgrade.

You'd be better served picking your poison from the various and sundry aftermarketeers rather than trying to duplicate a Boss.

If your looking at suspension look elsewhere, the changes on the Boss are unremarkable. Here's a Link to help show details. look at the spring/swaybar area.
Comparing a Boss to a GT, the main differences are slightly stiffer springs adjustable shocks/struts and a 1mm larger rear swaybar.
You can pretty much pick almost any aftermarket spring set combined with a set of quality shocks/struts and be better then a Boss without changing anything else.
There are several companies selling Adj. Swaybar packages also.
As far as engine power a CAI and Tuner should be enough to equal the power of a Boss
