Automobile Magazine Reviews 2013 Mustang

Some of the upgrades in the base cars also apply to the Boss and there is a brief mention of Boss specifics:

Unless the Boss is different the new LCD display and readouts won't display Coolant or CHT and oil pressure. In other words no additional sensors were installed.

"Premium trim levels of the 2013 Mustang feature a new 4.2-inch LCD screen in the instrument cluster, which can display everything from warning messages to fuel economy, as well as a special Gauge Mode that allows drivers to monitor engine parameters. While some fields, like voltage or intake air temperature, are displayed in numerals that change frequently, oil temperature and pressure were shown only as "Normal" on our test car. Another function of the LCD screen calls up Track Apps, which comprise a visual accelerometer, braking timing, and acceleration timer. The latter can even display on-screen "Christmas tree" lights to emulate the timed starts at a drag strip."
 
That "NORMAL" for oil pressure and temperature is a little disappointing. I don't know about pressure, but I was thinking of drilling out and tapping an extra drain plug for a thermocouple to get temperature.
 
CRAP.

I really thought it was going to include an actual measurement on temperature. I was hoping for pressure too, but I thought Temp would at least be there.
