I'll add to this thread, since Boss reliability is a worthy subject. I owned a 2012 with very low mileage and shortly after acquiring it noticed it was hard on oil. Long story short, I received a brand new long block from Ford under warranty. No idea what caused the oil burning, but was happy to get a new motor. I sold the car not too long after the new motor was put in because I wanted an 07-09 Shelby GT500 (bought an 08).

Fast forward to this past summer and I sold the GT500 and purchased a 2013 Oxford White Boss 302 with about 35K miles on it. So far so good. A recent oil analysis came back with excellent readings.

Both Boss' I owned suffered the occasional high RPM shift lockout.

Good stuff. I always measure my oil to ensure I get back what I put in after 5K miles. It's always what I put in. 4 oil changes so far. So I am considering my self lucky for now. Haha. I do love the Shelby's. Been thinking of grabbing one. Especially to put it below my 03 Cobra. That would just be a sight. Haha!
