Default Confused about my 5.0

Recently purchased a 2013 5.0, but it has a boss 302 in it. Doesnít have any of the boss 302 decals, trim, or interior. Says gt and 5.0 on it. Iím just a little confused about what is going on with my car. I bought it at 17,000 with 45k miles so if I got a major steal on a boss 302 engine that would be sweet. If anyone has any insight that would be awesome.

Probably just the BOSS intake manifold, that does not make it a BOSS motor.
People do buy those for the few extra horse power.

You can put up a picture, someone may be able to tell, but I am going to say it's
just the intake stuff. No way is it worth the cost for that swap, for ~+24 more horse power,
and minus 10 ft-lbs of torque. The intake manifold it not cheap, and I still think even that is
not worth the time and effort.

Sounds like a GT with the Boss intake is all. If you have any upgrades in the interior and 6 gauge dash, or satellite radio, it isn't a Boss. They tended not to have satellite or interior upgrades.

It has the Recaro seats, I'd call that an upgrade, no?

Boss came with Recaro, if it has the "interior upgrade package" with leather seats (not Recaro) then it is a GT. The interior upgrade has a different dash covering and 6 gauge set up.
