Don't start that debate. People always use that as a way to justify beating the piss out of a modded engine and have the manufacturer on the hook for your(not you) abuse.

If they install it, there is the limited warranty. If you over-rev it, forgot fucking oil, etc, that's all on you. If they determine that something they caused, IE THEIR tune was faulty, excessive detonation using proper fuel, etc, of course they'll warranty it.

Magnusson-Moss is not a catch all. It's like the that retard cuts his springs and complains to the manufacturer why the struts are now fucked and expects them to warranty it.

Found this from another Ford site.

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON THE GT TRACK KEY

I just spoke with Ford Racing. The gentlemen I spoke to said the 7/1/14 date is not correct. It will work on late model 2013 and all 2014 GTs with manual transmissions.

It's function (ability to work) is related to the updated instrument cluster.

A release date is not clear at this point, as it is in development. He would not give me a date.

The price should be the same as the Track Key for the Boss 302...which is $302

WooHoo I'm in!!!

Feel free to call for more info 800.367.3788, choose option two for the Ford Racing department.

This is basically what all the boss owners have done. No need for the regular key. And with the boss, so how it make the exhaust so much deeper. Not just the lopey idle.

Need this for Focus ST w/increased boost levels.

The PCM is horrible, and often when you command WOT, the throttle blade may only open to 70% to keep the 270lb/ft torque rating.

First videos and impressions of GT Track Key coming in. Looks and sounds very cool, and still retains factory warranty.

Dat lope.

Anyone know if the Mustang supports Map switching? The Focus ST PCM supports 5 different maps with on the switching. Can use it for controlling launch control, and other stuff.

Some guys setup the same map on slots 1-3 with the only difference being slightly varied launch control settings for different conditions. And you can do other things like boost levels as well.

Would be an interesting feature. "Lope on the fly"

No it doesnt. This track key is supported because of the dual path instrument cluster. There was a big tech discussion on mustang source about it explaining how it works, but I know its all based from the cluster.

I installed the Track Cal (I have an early 14) a few months ago. Bought it primarily for the improved throttle response. It does that in spades, although now I'm seeing why that might be more suited to "track" as it get's alittle choppy.

Second reason for installing was the lopey idle. I've got Boss sidepipes and GT500 mufflers. I wasn't expecting much because Ford wants to keep it cat-friendly, but holy crap is it awesome! I like that I can turn it off, cause when it's raining, I have the windows up and all you get is the shaking!

The power gain is minimal, but it already has enough to scare me. Probably never use the pit speed and launch control.

I installed the ProCal about a month ago, along with the "Power Pack" on my car (K+N, GT500 Mufflers), and I think its how it should have come from the factory hands-down.

MSD sells a Launch Control stand-alone for the modular motor if you didn't already know.

I feel like this was plug and play. I think the only clutch switch wiring you need to do is for a light to let you know when launch control is active?

You have to connect those to all the coil packs... was a pain in the DICK to do on 99-04 due to the limited space on the col covers SMASHING them down.
