GT over Boss

Yeah, that’s right, I’m opting for the GT over the Boss per my original decision. I don’t need a race car. The options of the GT bear more importance to me, options that I can’t even begin to fathom doing myself.

Only now I have opted to go with the Boss 302 front fascia while retaining the GT grill and fog lamps rather than going with the 3dCarbon front fascia. I’ve decided not to go with any custom paint scheme, so it is a simplistic design.

I would love to get the GT Track Package, Charcoal Gray with Grabber Blue accent leather trimmed bucket seats, and Shaker 1000 audio system with it, and Comfort Package, but then add on Steeda Tri-Ax short throw shifter (do they make one for 2013 yet?), Steeda ProFlow Cold Air Intake (is it even necessary for 2013 as it already comes with a cold-air intake?), Steeda Ultra-Lite Springs, Magnaflow Cat Back Street exhaust, and custom tune. Boom.

[Edit] Yes, Steeda makes the Tri-ax for 2011 and up, including 2013. The same is true of its cold air intake induction system (with SCT custom tune). [/Edit]


Power or Options? What’s a guy to do?

So, I am completely torn.

On the one hand, if I were to win the Mustang Customizer, I would love to have the Boss 302. It has 444 hp and is well balanced. But, it doesn’t have the Shaker sound system or standard in-cabin lighting. It also lacks leather interior. I hear good things about cloth, but I’ve really come to enjoy leather.

On the other hand, I would love to have a GT Premium with the Shaker sound system, standard in-cabin lighting, and leather interior, but it would be lacking some of the horsepower and balance of the Boss.

I have to ask myself: am I going to be racing?

I have to ask myself: am I going to be blaring my music?

I have to ask myself: will leather hold up better to my child?

I have to ask myself: do I want to bask in blue in-cabin lighting?

The answer: No, I won’t be racing, but I will be blaring my music, leather will hold up really well against the rigors of child rearing, and I most certainly do want to wade in my favorite hue.

I suppose I could always do some power adders to the GT to make up for the power loss, right?
