Boss TracKey

Buyers of the Boss 302 Mustang will be able to buy a special second key: a TracKey. Their standard one will, of course, allow them to exploit the Boss's 444bhp on a day-to-day basis, but the separately-available TracKey will open up a whole new world of performance, altering over 200 engine management parameters.
Ford say:
The TracKey PCM software, installed by an authorized Ford racing dealer after a customer takes delivery of the car, adjusts variable cam timing, spark maps, engine braking, fuel control and other engine parameters – more than 200 in total – to provide a complete race car calibration. The result is an aggressive, race-bred driving experience all the way down to the lopey idle rumbling through the Boss quad exhaust.
"Anything that could possibly affect all-out performance is deleted from the TracKey calibration," said Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer. "Throttle limiting and torque management – any daily driveability enhancements are removed and replaced with a pure Ford Racing competition calibration."

Much cooler than just getting chipped, and all covered by the warranty too!
