Not to hijack the thread or anything but the Track Key for the 14.5 GT's are now for sale. The site explains the difference between the trackey and the track cal (procal III?) Thought it would help on the subject a bit as I'm now more interested in the key more than the pro cal unit

Just closing the loop on this thread -- I finally got the ProCal tune loaded last week, and I'm very pleased. Throttle response is better, and the car pulls stronger, with no detectable knock so far. I'm using 93 octane Chevron fuel. Ford Racing originally sent a defective tuner, which was disappointing because I specifically requested a new, rather than remanufactured unit. They shipped a new one overnight directly to the dealer, so it wasn't a real big deal -- but did require an extra trip in Atlanta traffic to get there! My service rep on the 2nd visit was a former Steeda employee who is on this board -- super knowledgeable about tuning, and very helpful!

I'd also like to thank the ProCal users who chipped in on this thread, and helped me make the decision to go that route. I'm not planning any further engine/exhaust mods, so the ProCal tune is fine!

SD MMC Card Empty on Pro Cal II

HI

New to forum

I purchased a power pack from a seller locally for my 2011 gt

It included the gt500 axle back mufflers the k&n filter the pro cal II tool as well as the sd mmc card

The car it was originally on was the same as mine except i have 3.73

I put the sd card in my laptop just because i was curious

It appears empty except when i click on properties

It shows 16kb used and 483 mb free with a total capacity of 483mb

I called ford racing tech and he told me that by inserting it in laptop to read it i destroyed the data and will have to buy new card

Any one have any thoughts on this

Thank you in advance

I've been running the Ford Pro-Cal II tune for a few months now. Very pleased, no pinging on California 91 octane and I've actually picked up a few MPGs to boot.

I have a '13 GT, Ford Pro-Cal tune from dealership. With k&N filter and roush axle backs.

recently the ford dealer at golf mill said they would inspect my car with the oil change, "may" have reset PCM, or cleared codes ....

shop manager swears they did nothing, or whatever was done wouldnt affect my tune .... 5,000 forum posts and articles read later, I'm at 50/50 if anything can disrupt this tune. some "experts" say yes, some say no. (clearing the PCM that is)


long story short, I got Ford to resend me another replacement Pro-Cal tuner with my cars tune on it. Problem is I dont know if the tune is still on my car or not. and rather than follow the instructions to leave my mustang running for 2+ hours while the tuner re-downloads the tune, I'd like to know first if i have to, and then maybe I can even sell the tuner with the tune on it if I dont need it ! +++

anyone know where I can go (shop, etc...) to have them determine if my tune is on there ? Chicagoland and suburbs .... ?

any way to use the current tuner to first determine if the original tune is there ?


and before anyone says or asks ....
(i dont want to go back to golf mill ford as they are the ones that I am disputing about the work that may have caused my tune to disappear)
(no, I cant feel if the tune is gone, ... it's not that big of a feel in pants mod)
(yes i've called some other Ford dealerships service departments around NW Chicago, some say they dont have the tool to test if the tune is there (probably a lie), some say they dont do custom work (another lie, because a Ford dealer installed this tune and custom work from the original buyer here in Illinois)
(yes i've talked to Ford racing department 800 number, they are not very helpful, and they even suggested I call Roush, which doesnt make sense)



so I have put in the effort, too much if you ask me, and would like any additional help you guys can offer !!!


this is what I have ....

The new Procal tune you have is no use to anyone but you. It is registered to your PCM code and useless to anyone with a different one. Hook the procal tuner up and does it allow you to enter the programming process. Select performance cal and try to load it. It should take no more than 15 minutes if all is well.
