    I'm not sure where I first read this link from the August 2011 issue of 5.0 Mustang Magazine, but it is a must read for all Boss owners. I've read the article over a dozen times and learn something new every time. I ordered the reprint of the Magazine to keep in my Owner's file.
    Extensive article on the development of the new Boss with many interviews with those responsible.

    Hope you enjoy...

    Yes, this is a good magazine to read and keep, I have gone over this several times... There seems to be something missing or not talking about it? Still a great car.

    $9 shipped, might as well get one and toss it in the owner's package. Nice find on the ordering page.

    Thanks for posting the back issue link!

    That article should be stickied somewhere...so that anyone considering a Boss knows what went into it.

    This article has been posted many times before but that's a good idea. Any new threads will be combined with this one. Done. ;)

    We must have cleaned them out. The link to the August 2011 issue is now gone.

    I have a subscription to that mag and I am pretty sure I threw it away. Guess I can order a new one for the price of a years subscription lol

    Got mine last week. 3 copies. Looks like the link is working again too. My understanding is that some publishers reprint if their copies run out.

    Just order 6 different Boss 302 issues from different magazines. Been looking for these at swap meets, online, etc., but no luck. Thanks for posting the link to this site with back issues.

    I just read this thread and was going to purchase August 2011 of 5.0, but is sold out. Anyone have an extra copy for sale?
    Thanks

    Futruecar50, you can keep trying to get a back issue reprint from the publisher. As I understand, this particular issue has been quite popular. Just keep checking back. If all you want is the article you can get the pdf download from the link in the OP's first post. Good reading material.
