All Boss V8 engines are due for a recall.

Apparently the engines put out their rated power just after the engines are built, and when they are run in, they put out a lot more than they are supposed to.

Recalls will put in smaller valves, reduce the lift of the cam, and put an intake restrictor in to reduce the power output.
