Tire Pressure Sensor Question (TPMS)

Is the tire pressure sensor on my 2012 Boss 302 the same as any late model Mustang? Is their anything special about these sensors related to the Boss? I have a second set of stock rims to put onto the car so I am wondering if Ford part number TPMS-12-9L3Z-1A189-A is correct.

They are the same as a standard mustang. Just make sure to get a valve stem mounted sensor and not a banded sensor. They operate on a different frequency. Don't know which year they switch but I think it is around the body style change.
 
They are the same and used on many Ford models not just Mustang. They shouldn't need programming either. If the dash light does come on ignore it and it should go off within 100 miles. Check the parts for sale forum and there is a thread with sensors for sale on eBay and it includes a bunch of info.
 
Thanks for the replies! A new Ford sensor is $63 each. Not sure why I need this little electronic gadget but I guess it's to stimulate the economy of the UK?
