Default Chance meet with a Boss 302

Randomly met this guy at a gas station and got to talking. His Boss is bone stock and he doesnt want to modify it until his warranty is up (which will be in about 6 years at the rate he drives it LOL).

I am a big fan of the Boss 302 and would love to have one myself, I know they can be made pretty quick and the engine can take a good bit of boost over my 5.0.

His car was kind of dirty, as well as our engine bays (sucks living so close to mexico with all the sand storms).

We both pretty much predicted the outcome you will see in the video.

All runs are done in Mexico, one of the perks of living on the border



And then a small bonus of a Cobalt SS, Neon Srt-4, and BMW 335i

Nice kills... do you think the boss would have done any better with a driver mod? It almost looked like he was hanging during the one run... otherwise you pulled him pretty easily. Great driving.

I think he was a decent driver, but a shifter bracket probably would have done wonders for the runs. I told him to atleast get a shifter bracket if anything, because the one that Ford puts on there is pretty pathetic and causes alot of miss shifts.

Also, he was picking the speeds so that worked in his favor a bit as well.

Nice runs/vids!! Shouldn't take much (maybe a lighter driver, more aggressive driver) for that Boss to stay a little closer. 335i did alright too, considering.
