How Much Power is the Boss Mustang Track Key Worth?

Boss Mustang Track Key
Track Key Dyno Graph

Recently we had the chance to put a 2013 Boss Laguna Seca on the dyno before we did some upgrades. I always like to have a baseline dyno to compare to the after so we know how much our performance upgrades improved from stock. First, we made three pulls on the dyno without the Track Key then we made  three pulls with the Track Key.  We took the best results from each run and compared them to each other.

The Best Pre-Engineered Mustang Performance Shock Package Ever Designed!

SPEED SECRET: NEW PRODUCT

KB/Eibach Street-Sport Spring and Shock Package For 2005–2014 Mustang, Shelby GT500 and Boss 302

After several meetings reviewing the shock dyno information I have collected over the years and what I like to see for my preferred spring rates and shock valving, Eibach thought it made sense and we developed a custom set for me to test. I’m happy to report that I liked them. In fact, I liked them a lot and it's just what I was looking for in a street high-performance set-up. So… We are happy to announce the new Kenny Brown Street-Sport Spring and Shock Package for 2005–2014 Mustang, Shelby GT500 and Boss 302.

The #1 rule I follow when building the ultimate track car, or warmed-up every day driver for that matter, is there is more speed in the chassis than in the engine and a good handling chassis trumps a big motor every time. Before you start working on the engine or adding lots of power, build your performance foundation first.

The foundation consists of four elements - chassis, suspension, wheels, tires and brakes. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me to add a bunch of extra power, when you're not using all the power you currently have.

Slick Trick for Measuring Ride Height

Kenny Brown Guide To Measuring Ride Height
1 of 1

 

Before changing springs on your Mustang always measure the starting ride height so you have something to compare to when new springs are installed. The easiest and quickest way that I use is measuring from the ground to the bottom lip of the wheel wells through the center of the wheel. If you do this and discover that no two corners on your car are the same, you just found out why adjustable coil-over struts are just so darn handy.

The other day someone asked me, "Is the Shelby GT500 your new Cobra R?"…  After some reflection, the comment did resonate with me in fact it remind me of 2003 and 2004, when around 200 Cobra R race cars started showing up at my door.  That’s about the time Cobra-R owners serious about track-days and racing were surpassing the capabilities of their cars and wanted to go to the next level.

I have a saying - "A Bad Day at the Track is better than a Good Day at the Office!"  That makes a good day at the track absolutely PRICELESS.  Well I had one of those priceless days at the track recently at Putnam Park.  Over the winter one of my customers George decided to step up the performance of his 2001 Kenny Brown Cobra.  George does quite a few track days and wanted to be able to run with the really fast guys.  So he added a Vortech Supercharger and had the engine upgraded.  More power is great but unless the rest of the car is

Hot off the press - Not exactly, but it is fresh out of manufacturing, the first official pilot production run of Kenny Brown Super Subs rolls out of the Heidts facility in Wauconda, IL.  It's very symbolic given the occasion, for the first pilot production run of Kenny Brown products to be the Double-Cross Subframe Connectors.
