Hi Guys,
Isn't anyone looking for a BOSS block?

Okay, ah, my guess is that there are TWO yellow cars in that avatar pic of your shop. Am I right? Did I win? :D

Mike, honestly, I think most people are reluctant to drop that kind of change on something that doesn't really offer much advantage for a 302 builder. For what it costs, most would just buy a bulletproof Dart block, and build something with more cubes. That's just my opinion based on discussions I've read, and had in the past.

Hi,
No freebies on these. Ford's discount policy allows about $150.00 in margin. If someone wants to buy it and give it away I think that would be great.
As for the 351 BOSS block, still waiting. As for Ford blocks, the 302 Sportsman (was $900.00) is gone and the BOSS is the replacement at $1650.00.

Brian, the Boss block can handle upwards of 360ci of displacement and is every bit as good as the Dart offering. If someone was building a mild or stock 302, yes, it's probably a waste of money, but if you are wanting to build a stout 331 or 347 or put some boost or juice into it, which a lot of guys here do, then the Boss block is a nice step up in the right direction.

The Boss is not "just" a 302ci block that can go .030 over like the Sportsman. It can have a max bore of 4.125, like the old R302 block...

As for the 351, it is a long ways away so you will be waiting for a while (FRPP is working on their big-block program now that the Boss 302 block is released)...

HTH...

I looked at the new boss 302 block today at spring Carlisle,I don,t remember the vendor but the price was $1750, really stout well machined, if you are looking to build a strong motor this is where I would start.

Hi Alain,
These are roller cam blocks. I still have it in stock and custom build it for you.
