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.

2013 Boss 302 Borla ATAK Exhaust
Here is my before and after comparison of the stock 2013 Boss 302 Exhaust, with side pipe restrictor plates removed, and then with my new Borla ATAK Axleback Exhaust and the side pipe restrictors still removed. I had just put these on and have not yet centered the tips, which is why they look misaligned.

Lethal Performance-First 2012 BOSS 302 in the 10's! firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com 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 compliments of Steve Turner.
We'd like to thank everyone involved with the car as well as all of our friends and fans.

My ride in a 2012 Boss 302
Some of the ride to and from Cars & Coffee in Irvine the morning of 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 GREAT!
