It hasn't been released by Ford Racing yet, I can guarantee I'll have a better price that the guys you linked to :)

Just a quick FYI, that is not a link to Ford Racing, they're an independent distributor just like we are.

I'm not sure but, it sounds like this flash key is for a aftermarket tune specific to that key/manufacturer or something like that?? Is that track key tune any better then any other tunes like Bama and others....IDK? The only thing that I see as beneficial is that when I'm at the track I just have to use the track key to go from an 89 tune to the 93 tune which is convenient compared to changing tunes with a SCT or Diablo. So, it all depends on how aggressive is that track key tune, is like a 93 octane BAMA tune or is it more like a very safe Steeda tune....there's not enough info in that article and most of all, what is the price....well see if this track key is any good or is it some BS gimmick? Oh, and does this aftermarket track key tune void the Ford warranty...if it doesn't void the warranty then it could be interesting?? And we all know the warranty/tune void threads so, no reason to debate that.

Steve@Tasca 02-06-2014 07:42 AM

It's basically the same as the flash FRPP has for the Boss, the details from the Boss tune are below and may not all apply to the GT since they haven't released any solid details yet.

Whenever the TracKey is used to start the vehicle, many engine control characteristics are changed to be more suitable for track use. These include:

Twin Independent Variable Cam Timing (TiVCT)
Engine braking
Ignition timing
Wide-Open Throttle fueling
Accelerator pedal map
Idle speed
Throttle response
Skip-shift disable (Available for 2012 Boss 302, not necessary on 2013 model)

In addition, the following features are unique to TracKey

Driver adjustable Launch Control, or "2-step engine speed limiting"
Driver adjustable Pit Lane Speed Control
Lopey idle

Warranty answer, again taken from the Boss tune link.

There is not enough info about that Key tune, lets see how many dudes buy a Boss Intake a Tune Key and think they got a Boss...LOL This Key will get interesting when shops start doing dyno pulls with this key tune....will it's performance meet or surpass a Bama 93 tune and/or will this key tune out perform a dyno tune?? Dyno's don't lie and it's probably cheaper to have a custom dyno tune with better/specific to the car results. We'll see what the dyno says???

todcp 02-06-2014 09:03 PM

The track key for the Boss and for the 2014 GT, manual built after 7/1/2013 only due to electronics changes mid year, are not for more horsepower. The key tune modifies the engine dynamics for better road race performance. Like engine braking and launch control.
Go to ford racing parts and read about the Boss Key and expect the same.
Some Boss owners reported a small horsepower increase but ford racing tech told me to not expect any added power and the track key tune will override their ProCal tune if it is already installed; like my car. I will be using my car for HPDE and plan to be first in line for the track key.

As mentioned, The FRPP tune isn't intended to increase horsepower. It's intended to make the car more track friendly and responsive.

I've been selling the FRPP Boss Track Key tune for $220.00 for a couple years now and it's been very popular.

I'd expect this one to be in the same price range so it's also considerably less expensive than most aftermarket tunes.

Yea, sounds like it is for what it name states, for a track(road course), so, aftermarket tunes/dyno tunes are more for the straight line guys and makes a huge power difference which turns into quicker 1/4 mile times while the track key changes road track manners/dynamics but, not much or any power increase so, I guess something for the for the track.
$220 is the price for the key but, does this price include the Ford dealership Fee or is that a seperate charge on top of the $220?

The programming is additional, it's typically charged as one hour labor but it does vary by dealership.

I hope Steve sees it. I have not had a reply yet from Steve so he must not hang out here that often.

R1nStang 04-07-2014 02:03 PM

subscribed. and about to start googling more info about this

todcp 04-07-2014 08:12 PM

I could not wait longer as I need it for track day on May 9. Ordered from fordracingpartsdirect.com

I will post some impressions after it is installed. This will override my ProCal.

bryan67 04-08-2014 08:12 AM

well for the guys that think its just for a road course. IMO are wrong. the 2 step feature it added is very common for the drag strip. only guest i have If you do any other tunes over it will you lose the track apps that it unlocks?

Ricepuddin 04-10-2014 08:08 AM

I just saw on another forum, Steve is on vacation until tomorrow

Ricepuddin 04-10-2014 08:19 AM

Correct on late April availability.
My order put me in the cue for first batch. Hope it arrives in time to install before my May 9 track day

Steve@Tasca 04-14-2014 08:21 AM

I was on vacation and am just getting caught up from it, other than vacations I do try to check in on each forum I'm on several times a day.

The Trackey for the '14 GT has a tentative release date of 4-25 and it'll be $330.00 plus shipping from us.

My 2014 Brembo GT was built in 6 of 2013 so I believe I wont be able to get the key, just the tune which is controlled via the instrument cluster? ....I'm very interested! Also, it mentions better full-throttle fuel control so one would think it would actually gain better hp numbers?
