Free tunes for life! Every customer that purchases a tuner is enrolled in the "Free tunes for life" program. Any time that you make additional mods to your vehicle, our team of SCT certified Bama Custom Tuners will create new tunes for you.

Custom Bama Tunes specific to your vehicle. When you order a tuner, you aren't just getting a tuner - you are getting the tuner and 3 dyno-tested custom Bama tunes:

  • Street (87-93 octane) - the street tune is designed as a daily driver program that focuses in on increasing mid-range power. It does give up a few HP at higher RPMs, but that's why there is a Performance file. Automatic vehicles are further enhanced by making adjustments to the transmission's shift points and firmness.
  • Performance (87-93 octane) - The Performance program is designed to add power at 3000 RPMs and higher, focusing more on the top end horsepower and all out performance driving. Timing, fuel and throttle response settings are slightly more aggressive than the street tune. This is a great track tune but also works well for daily drivers that are looking for a little more "get up and go" than the street tune. The automatic transmission settings are the same as in the street tune.
  • Race (91 - 93 octane) - The race tune will ensure the largest increase in vehicle performance. Using the highest grade of fuel available in your area is mandatory. This file is designed for "Race only Use" as the timing, fuel, and throttle response settings are very aggressive. in fact, the adjustments are so aggressive, that we do not recommend it for daily driving as it may cause your vehicle to try to jump out from a stop and easily spin the tires. Finally, with the automatics, we implement entirely new shift points and firmness settings to further enhance the all-out performance of the vehicle.

Nitrous (91-unleaded race gas) - Our nitrous option can be added to any of our previously mentioned tune options, but only for 91-octane unleaded fuel.

Easy to load; easy to restore. Not only are the custom tunes easy to load on your vehicle, it is just as easy to restore your factory settings. When you load your custom tune on the vehicle, the tuner automatically stores your vehicle's factory settings. To return the vehicle to its factory settings, just plug the tuner back in, select the option to restore the factory settings, and you're done.

SCT SF3/XCalibrator 3 Power Flash Tuner Features:

  • Handheld Tuner based off of SCT's premier LiveWire Tuner
  • Reads / Clears DTC Trouble Codes
  • Avg. HP gain on a stock Mustang with 91 Octane = 22 HP

    Installed this, with the help of my 12 year old son, in about 15 minutes. Included instructions were spot on, couldn't have been much simpler. Flashed the computer and we were off. Power was noticeably increased, mileage change was negligible (maybe i was going to heavy on the pedal... maybe). Didn't hear the suction sound until i added a bigger throttle body. Awesome bolt on improvement.

    Excellent Upgrade

    May 27, 2010

    What's to say: Stock: 15.250 @ 89.35mph 1/4m With Kit: 14.817 @ 91.69mph 1/4m Drastically improved 60ft,1/8,etc. Much more fun to drive on the street. Nice crisp upshift. Very easy to install and use. Highly recommended.

    Best preliminary upgrade you can get for your V6. The CAI itself is extremely well built and made of quality material. The install of the CAI is relatively easy, and the included instructions clear up any confusion. This is my first car, and I've never messed with any car parts before, but this took me about 40 minutes start to finish, no hangups at all. The tuner is easy to hook up as well, and really wakes up the car. The tuner combined with the CAI wakes up the engine and gives the car an entire new feel. The CAI makes the car sound better, but I'm sure when its combined with a dual exhaust the car will start sounding borderline V8. You can't go wrong with Steeda, this kit was worth every dollar.

    Switched out the bbk chrome CAI with no tune required for this one with a tune required. What a change in response time, and you can just hear it gulping down the air. A must have mod in my book.

    A phenomenal boost for my V6

    December 07, 2011

    This air intake and tuner combo was the first real performance upgrade I had done to my car. I was a little nervous because that was a lot of money to spend especially as my first upgrade but also as a college student on a budget. Once I finally decided to order AM shipped it out the same day and I had it early the next week. Me being me, I ripped it open and couldn't wait to get it installed. The hardest part of the whole instal was getting the old intake out of the car and all that consisted of was use a tiny amount of force to pull it right out. Once that was gone it was about 20 more minutes and the new intake was installed and ready to go. Earlier that day I realized that I hadn't told Bama that I was getting the CAI and that the tunes I would be receiving wouldn't change anything. I called them and within 30 minutes and even before I received the tuner, I had my new custom tune files waiting in my inbox. Once I had the intake installed and the tunes upgraded on my tuner, I decided that I didn't want to immediately use the tunes and I wanted to test out how the intake did on its own. Once I got a chance go open it up I realized how much the CAI helped. I pulled over and plugged in my tuner and in just a few minutes I was ready to turn around and open the car up again. What a difference! That combination started to unleash my mustang. Needless to say there is more to add to keep it getting better and better but there is no better way to start. I was amazed by the change in feel and power. It feels like my car is more alive then and I could never go back to driving it without these upgrades. I firmly recommend this package to anyone looking to add to their ride, it doesn't matter if you already have started using upgrades or if you are just starting off like I was. This is an amazing bang for you buck! Thank you AM for providing such a wonderful product and being fast a convenient with the shipping and thank you Bama for providing such a quick response with the tune files. I hope this review helps sway people on the edge like they did for me and enjoy your orders!

    Just installed this today, and along with the SCT X3 power flash, I have to say it really added some much needed power to my V6. Install was simple. 10 minutes tops. Great product.

    Had to install the CAI twice because the tuner had quite a few problems. First time took about a half hour. Second, less than 10 minutes once I knew what I was doing. Performance has improved. There's virtually no lag time between hitting the accelerator and actually accelerating, unlike without the tune / CAI. Haven't noticed any kind of change in the sound tho, not that it makes a difference.

    My CNL cold air intake was getting old and i couldn't find a new cone in stock so i upgraded to this. It fits well and uses two prongs, and the hood to stay in place. The bolt location near the fender does not get used so i placed the bolt into the spot to keep it for later. Overall I like the steeda and it compares nicely to the CNL other than it does not come with a new tube and you use your stock rubber one. I also like how the steed comes with rubber to gasket off your cold air intake which is nice since I don't want water to seep in through mine which was possible with the CNL. Overall get this, it's steeda quality for sure. I finished my changes with a steeda throttle body spacer.
