VIDEO: We Drag Race Our 2012 Boss 302 & 2011 GT


Not too long ago, we received a dare from our customers on Facebook, YouTube and a few different Mustang enthusiast forums. The message was clear: we want to see you race your 2011 GT and your 2012 Boss 302 at the drag strip. The timing was perfect… we had two employees beating their chests going back and forth about who the better driver is. It was time for them to “put up or shut up”, and shortly after, we headed to Cecil County Dragway for a grudge match!

Let’s take a look at the drivers: Brick (The Racer)‘s job is to keep all of the Mustang parts in-stock at AmericanMuscle.com. An avid NMRA enthusiast and racer himself, we didn’t have to twist his arm to get him to bang through the gears in the 2012 Boss 302. Mike Wilson (The Tuner), from our Bama Performance Custom Tuning Specialists, is very familiar with our 2011 Mustang GT. He helped us reach the 10-second mark in it late-last year!

This rivalry started a few months back and after tons of trash talking, we had to settle it the AmericanMuscle way. Both cars were brought completely back to stock, and similar mods were added to give each other a fair chance!

Boss Mods:
JLT Cold Air Intake
Bama 93 Race Tune
Kooks 1 7/8″ Long Tube Headers
Kooks High Flow Catted X-Pipe
Magnaflow Cat-Back System
Barton Short Throw Shifter
Nitto NT05R Rear Tires

GT Mods:
JLT Cold Air Intake
Bama 93 Race Tune
Boss Intake Manifold
– Stock Auto Trans.
Off-Road X-Pipe
Nitto NT555R Rear Tires

Congratulations to Brick for driving hard and killing it with a .003 light (watch close at the shifts on the third run – AWESOME)! Since filming, Mike Wilson threw down consistent 12.0-12.1 passes in the 2011 GT. He’s ready for Brick, any time, any place!

The reason we chose the 2012 Boss and 2011 GT were because you guys commented and wanted to see it happen! Make sure to comment and let us know any other videos you’d like to see from the Mustang Experts at AmericanMuscle.com!

    1. I know, right? If it was authentic Tuner vs. Racer, then both should have been on the same transmission (preferably manual, of course). A good shifting technique would give more advantage for the racer though.

  3. This wasn’t apples to apples! One poster already said no long tubes on the GT or a cat back system. Now we all know the Boss has 3.73 ratio rear, the auto is what 3.15
    Please… if you want to do a fair race then make it fair to start with!
