Says "Powered By Ford" on mine. I'm going with "Boss" though, sounds better. How was that started anyway? Design similarities with the original Boss motor is what I heard.

"Ford states the new “Boss” 6.2 liter SOHC V8 ICE which pumps out 400 horsepower and 400 foot pounds of torque, will be available as an option in the winter of 2010. Until then, the Raptor will come standard with the troublesome Ford’s 5.4 liter SOHC engine that produces 320 horsepower and 390 foot pounds of torque. Will it be worth the wait? We hope so.

The engine will make its debut appearance in 2010 in the F-150 SVT Raptor. Originally dubbed the Hurricane, the name was changed to the Boss after Hurricane Katrina devastated much of the Louisiana and Mississippi coast line in August 2005"

I had seen this designation in some other articles - It must be from Ford somewhere...
