Lethal Performance 2012 BOSS 302 Stock Exhaust Comparison
Since we took delivery of our performance white 2012 BOSS we haven't had much time to mess with it. However we found some time today and wanted to see more about this side exit Exhaust feature we've been hearing about. So we took he out in front of Lethal headquarters to make a few soundclips. With the stock Exhaust setup the car sounds so tame. Very similar to our grabber blue 2011 5.0L. For a Mustang especially a specialty one like the BOSS I personally believe it should be a little more aggressive.
So after we made the clip of the stock setup we put the car on some jack stands and took our first peak at the side exit Exhaust. How it's setup is at the rear of the stock h-pipe there's legs that branch off to the side pipes. On those legs closer to the H-pipe there's a section where the pipes are connected and you can see what looks like a gasket in between the sections. Using a 15mm socket we removed the bolts the section to separate that section and pulled out the restrictor plates. Those plates (baffles) prevent the flow of Exhaust through the side pipes. Once removed we reinstalled the 15mm bolts and put the car back on the road.
Immediately after starting the car you could hear the difference. Now this is how a Mustang should sound. Take a listen for yourself and you'll see what I mean. It's a major improvement over the stock Exhaust with the side pipes closed.
Now don't get used to this for too long as we've got major plans for this BOSS. As a matter of fact shortly after this video was made the car made it's way over to Power by The Hour Performance in Boynton Beach where we started tearing into it with our good friend, editor of 5.0 Mustang Magazine Steve Turner.. Stay tuned for more out of this one. We promise not to let you down.

Lethal Performance 2012 Boss 302 runs 10.31 @ 132.41 at Mustang Week 2011 Mustang Week 2011 was a
huge success for Team Lethal. When we arrived at Darlington Dragway with
Team UPR early Thrusday we were joined by the crew from Monster Energy and
Steve Turner from 5.0 Mustang Magazine shortly after. We
prepped the car and blessed it with some fresh decals from UPR and Monster
Energy & Mcleod and we were ready to rock. This was the 3rd time our Boss
had ever seen the 1/4 mile strip. The conditions were definitely less than
favorable with scorching heat. None the less our hired gun Jeremy
Martorella from UPR Products lined up the Boss for it's first run of the
day. Unfortunately it didn't make it out of the burnout box. Not once, not
twice but 3 times our intake tube popped off. A little embarrassing to say
the least especially as this was a big event with lots of people watching
and our first time in front of the Monster Energy crew. However we know
from experience this stuff happens when racing and we kept our heads up
With a little customization by Jeremy and Mark from UPR the intake pipe
wasn't going anywhere. We hit the burnout box again and this time actually
made it to the starting line. There were lots of cheers and clapping from
those in the crowd as they were also just as happy as we were that we made
it past the water box.
Jeremy launched the car and we made our first full pass with a 10.40
something trapping close to 135mph. Our nest run yielded us the best ET of
the day with a firstname.lastname@example.org which is the quickest anyone has been in a 2012
Boss. The MPH on this run was low due to Jeremy needing to shift into 5th
gear right at the end of the track. There were also a few small things we
need to work out with the car which we took care of once we got back home.
We know that once back at Palm Beach International Raceway we should see
better times as it was just too hot to see the performance we expect from
the car. We'll be out again tomorrow so be sure to keep posted on our

Lethal Performance - Vaughn Gittin, Jr. drifts our new 2012 Boss 302 Mustang
We headed out to Palm Beach International Raceway here in West Palm Beach,
FL to meet up with Steve Turner of 5.0 Magazine at Round 3 of the Formula
Drift series. While we were there, we decided to hand the keys to our new
2012 Boss 302 Mustang over
to 2010 Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin, Jr. We've only had the car
for 1 week and are just shy of the 1000-mile mark, so what better way to
break it in than to have the powerhouse drifter take it around the course a
Lethal Performance sends a HUGE thank you to Steve Turner of 5.0 Magazine,
Susan Pollack of Palm Beach International Raceway, Satcher Motor Company,
Monster Energy drinks and, of course, Vaughn Gittin, Jr.
When we purchased our Boss a lot of our fans wanted to see something out of
the car other than 1/4 mile runs. Although we're going to have to take the
car down the track I was definitely open for a change. Some mentioned the
road course and a few mentioned drifting.
Well this afternoon we broke our car in the way it should be done. We
headed up to Palm Beach International Raceway in Palm Beach Gardens FL to
meet up with 5.0 Mustang &
Super Ford Magazine editor Steve Turner. He was there covering the Formula
Drift event that's going to take place at the track this weekend. Not only
was he there to cover the event but he was also there for a photoshoot with
none other than 2010 Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin, Jr.
Funny thing is that on the way up there I noticed a black Ford Fusion
behind us in my rear view mirror. The guy driving was wearing a Monster
Energy hat. It crossed my mind that it was Vaughn but I didn't think any
further of it. As we're on the Bee Line Hwy not far from the track the
Fusion passes us and Christy says to me that she thought that it was Vaughn
that just passed us. So I pulled up aside them and sure enough it was him
and his fiance Abigail on the way to the track. They looked over and gave
the thumbs up to us in the Boss and we did the same to them. We get to the
track and make our way to the pits. We finally get to the area where
Vaughn's trailer and car was and parked the Boss. Within a minute of us
getting out Vaughn came over to us, introduced himself and we hit it off
right away. Abigail came over too and we all stared chatting. Steve Turner
then shows up and we all start talking cars and having a great time.
Rewind a bit...Before going up there I had this crazy idea that I ran by
Steve which was to see if we could get Vaughn to take our Boss for a drift.
Being that I've never met Vaughn before and the fact they were just setting
up for the event I had no idea if something like that was even possible. So
I called our good friend Susan Pollack who's the director of communications
at PBIR and asked her if she could arrange for us to use a section of the
track. She said as long as Vaughn was cool with it why not.
So as we're standing there chatting I asked Vaughn if he wanted to thrash
on our new Boss for a few. Without hesitation he said sure. He asked me
what we wanted him to do with it and I told him to drive it like it was
his. He replied with something to the effect of " You sure you want me to
do that" and laughed.
It's on!! He goes and grabs his helmet and asks me if I want to ride with
him. Without him needing to twist my arm I said yes and he grabbed another
helmet for me. Now I'm in the Boss with Vaughn driving and we're following
Susan, Christy and Steve in their car around the road course to the area of
the track that she cleared for us.
At this point I've got a shit eating grin from ear to ear. I couldn't
believe this was happening. We take off and enter the turn at 60mph and
we're drifting. The tires are spinning, smoke is everywhere and the G's are
pulling me. He's feathering the throttle to keep the car aligned as it
swings around the turn. I'm on another planet at this point. The grin is
still there. Turn around and head back to the turn. This time at 80mph..
Same thing. Smoke, sliding, tire spinning and we're having a blast. All the
time Vaughn was super cool and I felt like I was hanging with one of my
good friends. He made it seem so easy. After my ride was done he took
Christy for a spin as well and she was even more excited then me as she's a
HUGE fan of his.
We wrap the drifting up and head back to the pits. Vaughn has to get to a
drivers meeting so we said our good bye's and made plans to see each other
at the event this weekend.
All I can say is WOW!!! What an amazing afternoon. The Boss handled and
performed great. Vaughn Gittin Jr. is an awesome dude and I'm so stoked
that I not only for to meet him but drift with him in my own car. For this
I am thankful. Major thanks to Vaughn Gittin Jr. his fiance Abigail, Steve
Turner of 5.0 Mustang &
Super Fords Magazine, Palm Beach International Raceway, Susan Pollack,
Christy High for being such an awesome and enthusiastic employee and Ford
for blessing us with the Boss!!

8/6/2011. This car is 100% factory original and un-modified. It had 800
miles on it during this video. The owner/driver didn't go more then about
60% throttle, he just likes winding it up. I don't blame him, it sounds

We've been making sure to stay busy with our new Boss. We've already had
Vaughn Gittin jr drift it with less than 1000 miles on it. This time Jeremy
Martorella of UPR Products got the chance to take it down the drag strip
for the first time with just under 1400 miles on it.
Our second run of the evening yielded us a firstname.lastname@example.org with a 1.51 60ft.
The car hooks great and Jeremy was very impressed with how fast it was. He
was shifting the car at 7800-7900rpms. For our tire and wheel setup we're
running a set of Bogart Bolted GT's along with some Hoosier front runners
and Mickey Thompson 15" ET Drags.
As far as the rest of the mods go unfortunately we're not going to disclose
that right now as you'll be able to read all about it in a up coming issue
of 5.0 Mustang Magazine

We'd like to thank everyone involved with the car as well as all of our
friends and fans.

Lethal Performance 2010 Shelby GT500 10.09@140mph
We had a fun time at the track last night. Although we didn't do as well as
we were hoping to we got a lot accomplished with the car and in reality did
quite well. Just so there's no misunderstanding the car was making 21psi
and was run on C16. No methanol was used. We dialed in the suspension a
little better and was able to cut a 1.47 60ft on one of the runs. We also
noticed that our stock diff is shot as we were only spinning one tire as we
left the burnout box. So we'll be taking care of that this week. We also
datalogged the car and Jon went over the logs with me this morning. The car
was pulling 4 deg's of timing. So on our 10.09 run as we went through the
traps we were only seeing 17deg of timing. He's not exactly sure why but
we'll be looking into it this week. We didn't log IAT2's last night as
Chris's computer was having issues logging a few parameters on our car.
IAT2 being one of them.
The other thing that was working against us was the weather. It was humid,
muggy and we're still in the 70's. We kept scratching our heads trying to
figure why we were going 2-3mph slower in the 1/8th than our last time at
the track when we went 112+mph through the 1/8th. Between the crappy air
the car pulling timing at least we know what was going on with the car.
With that said we're going to keep on making adjustments, tweak the
suspension and get the issues straightened out with why the car is pulling
timing. As Derek mentioned above I believe we're going to put in a spool.
To this date the car has seen 3 full passes. For us to being doing what we
are especially with the weather and with the car pulling timing we're doing
great. It's easy for someone to say that we should easily being running a
certain time because of the power we're making but there's a lot more to it
than that. It's easy to strap a car to a Dyno and make a number but
taking that power and making it work for you at the track is completely
different. Ask guys like Andy, Tony, Chris or any other person who runs
fast times how many runs it took them to dial the car in. We can't expect
to build a car, take it to the track for the first time and run the car to
it's fullest potential. That's not how it works. We know that with how the
car sits if we get the small issues ironed out and see some cool air we
should see 9.60-9.70's.
For now it's back to work and we'll be out at the track again soon.
