Are you going to run the stock paper filter or replace it with a drop in unit like a K&N? What are the race teams running in their cars? Here's some info on the K&N for the GT. Does the Boss use the same filter as the GT?

I'll run a K&N. But I checked their web site recently and only found an oil filter available so far for the Boss. Is the air filter the same for a Boss as a 5.0 GT?
Well what do you K&N lists an air filter for the Boss:

2012 FORD Mustang Boss 302 5.0L V8 F/I - All Automotive Air Filter 33-2431

Same part number as the GT
Yes, oiling needed:

I didn't immediately find specific gains shown:

Is the stock air filter on the Boss the standard paper filter for all V8 Mustangs?
I am thining about puting an AirRaid CAI on mine, just haven't pulled the triger yet. It has an option for a non-oiled filter called SynthaMax.
