Was just on a few different forums here and this occurred to me...... Our Bosses have only a roughly 302CID while Camaros and Corvettes have a 378 or 380CID motor that's only rated 10 HP more at 455 net vs our 444 HP give or take a few? I find that amazing and even ours being '12-'13 years the Chevy stats are 2017. Meaning naturally aspirated versions for both, point being what's wrong with this picture?

Keeping within the scope of this forum is that reason enough alone to purchase a Boss over any competition? http://www.motortren...et/camaro/2017/

Four cams and four valves per cylinder count for a lot. I'm impressed how much horsepower GM gets out of those antiquated motors.

Our 302 always puts a smile on my face. After a healthy cruise I always end it by saying to myself....Dam it's only a 302. However I also do say how good the LS motors are. The bottom end on them are great. You can throw a ton of boost at them and be safe. I do like the idea on the 4 bolt mains with the extra bolt that also holds the main caps down from the side of the block. So it really like a 6 bolt main. Lets face it>> the crankshaft is part of the soul of the motor. First thing to go is the crank or rod on high boosted engines. Thank god I'll never have to worry about that in my Boss. N/A for life :love_shower:

 So let's take it one step further. How about the fact that a double over head camshaft engine can have independent camshaft timing on both intake and exhaust timing,

For sure, when I first learned about that I thought it to be a mistake. And too you can RPM the hell out of the arrangement and it's durable. Will have to mention think I've only had mine up to maybe 5500 RPM, no where to really shift and drive much faster around here.

Shoud be interesting to get in and drive an '18 GT with its 460 horse motor. I'd still be very interested to get behind a 5.2 CPC from what the rumors have touted.

You might find firing up the Boss, and hitting the road ,to almost be a religious experience...it is for me, life or death with the push of a T.C. button or not.

Dave could explain this better,turning off the NANNIES, our guardian savior.
