    That is the engine in the Raptor...

    "The 6.2 L (379 cu in) V8 is the main variant of the Boss engine. The V8 shares design similarities with the Modular Engine family such as a deep-skirt block with cross-bolted main caps, crankshaft-driven gerotor oil pump, overhead cam valve train arrangement, and bellhousing bolt pattern. In particular, the 6.2 L features a two-valve per cylinder SOHC valve train with roller-rocker shafts and two spark plugs per cylinder, as well as dual-equal variable cam timing. Just as notable is that they use a much wider 4.53 in (115.1 mm) bore spacing (compared to the Modular's 3.937 in (100.0 mm)), allowing for the use of larger bore diameters and valves. The 6.2 L V8 has a bore diameter and stroke of 4.015 in × 3.74 in (102.0 mm × 95.0 mm). It has lightweight aluminum cylinder heads and pistons, but makes use of a cast-iron cylinder block for extra durability since most applications for the engine will be trucks"

    Boss is Ford's internal name for the 6.2

    Really??? He’s a poser yet you’re trolling in the Gen1 forum!!! Shouldn’t you be answering weed wacker questions with the Jenny’s in your own forum??? Food for thought you probably shouldn’t get a lot of these guys going here in this forum

    While I don’t completely agree, it’s better than the OEM chrome grill.

    I have been working hard to get the Gen 1 style grill from Boost Bars. They have been out of stock but I’m hoping I can get it ordered soon. The Gen 1 grill looks better on the Gen 1 trucks.
