Default GT V8 HP

I have tried to find out if all the work that was done to the new 5.0 is making more power. Best I have read is 430hp which is not really that much from the 420 hp in the current year. Does anyone know of anything different? Or if wanting more the only choice would be to go with the so called GT350 which is a lot more $$$$

well waiting til i get on the dyno next month but was told when i bought my 14 it has the Ford performance cold air ducting to stock air box. and Track key Tuning. Was told some Hp numbers but waiting to see it on the dyno. supposed to put it into the low 12's which is almost a 1/2 sec over the 13's. Just waiting for weather to improve so can hit the track soon.

stock 2014 low 12s? 1/2 a second faster than the 13's? someone was pulling your chain.

There are no performance differences between the 13s and 14s.

differences are:
2 new color choices in 2014 and black out appearance package offered. that's it.


Record sotck 1/4 mile for the 5.0 is 12.2@115. (Done at cecil which is a downhill track) next lowest is 12.4@112, which was done on a 2012 mustang.

actually yes the track key tune works on some 13s and 2014 Gt's with manual trans. it adjusts
Twin Independent Variable Cam Timing (TiVCT)
Engine braking
Ignition timing
Wide-Open Throttle fueling
Accelerator pedal map
Idle speed
Throttle response
plus has some other track options aviable thru your dash management screen.
and was given some #'s of what it should run but want to see for myself.
havnt made it to track yet do to weather issues. Hopefully soon.

But downfall to it is once i get into modding and add the N20. Ill be overrighting the programming. Just hope it dont cancel out the added track options. Time again will tell.

I just read that the '15 GT will have only 435hp but it "WILL" beat a Boss 302 around a race track. I also remember reading a while ago that it will have 420 when it first comes out but will get more later on in its first year...so, who knows? Lol

I wouldn't expect much more than the 2014 models offers. Maybe 430 apposed to 420? 450 would be awesome. Take a run at the Corvette.

"legal aftermarket engine performance software upgrade "

Likely from the same source you got that list of changes. It's a tune.

Track Key is an aftermarket dealer "installed" option, not considered stock.

yea its a tune, and air intake piece, that can be ordered as an option. So how is that not factory? Limited edition option for Manual only Gt's. Dealer activated or Not. just like ordering different gears,rims,track pack, etc. its an option. So it IMO still considered stock. Just like i think the Track key option on a Boss is Stock.

Does it void the warranty? Is it described in the literature as off road use only? If no to both questions I wouldn't worry about if it's considered stock or not.

I just tied to build a car online, and there was no track key option on Ford's website.
But does it really matter.

Well it's just like the intake + tune from FRPP you can get from the dealer. the only difference is the key changes the tune instead of having a hand-held tuner.

You can get any of these, non-warranty voiding, installed by dealer, as a "dealer option"

http://www.fordracingparts.com/musta...mancePacks.asp

you can order the track key here:

http://www.fordracingpartsdirect.com/category_s/523.htm

I wouldn't consider it (track key) stock for the purposes of "factory stock" 1/4 mile times. The track key is not a factory option.

The reason it's not Factory stock is because it doesn't come from the factory like that. You have to order it separately, and you can order any of those through the dealership and have them install it, but it's dealership installed, not factory installed. It's no different than asking my dealership to install the frpp supercharger on mine, paying the insane price, and claiming "factory stock".

hate to burst your bubble but a blower would have been a better investment than an overpriced dealer installed intake/tune package. Throttle bodies on these cars have been proven to show very minimal power increases on naturally aspirated motors. Your list of mods probably would have gotten you pretty close dollar wise to a entry level intercooled procharger kit. My 2 cents anway if you're looking for dyno proven power and track times...

As far as the 2015 model goes, everything I have heard is around the same as the 2014 model. I have read up to 430 hp. I'm personally hoping for 450. Next gen car; bump it up and turn some heads FORD.

well the car came with the improved inlet tube and the Track key tuning. Long story was part of a Lemon law trade deal i worked out with the Dealer for my Focus St i bought last year. Didnt really pay extra for any of it. What i liked most about it is the 2 step feature. Which IMO for a Stick car is a Must for Bracket drag racing. If your starting out and dont plan on doing lots of Mods to your car. It can be a worth wild cost. If you going to be modding right away then No I wouldnt spend money on it. Ran it all weekend at the Track was Fun. Going to do alittle more testing this week. Then getting the N20 kit and tuning done next week.

FF/MM did an interview with several Ford engineers and during the interviews, the power train engineers said something to the extent of 435BHP is possible.
Personally, I believe 430-435BHP is all we are going to get from the revised Coyote. Even though the S550 Coyote has larger valves, more cam lift, and revised intake and head passageway routing, I seriously doubt that the new Coyote will be factory tuned to more than 430-435BHP. Even though it could hit possibly 450BHP bone stock, I am certain Ford will purposely detune it to no more than 435BHP. Emissions and fuel economy goals are the driving factor for this.

It will have at least 450 and it will need it, because it's going to be 300lbs heavier.
