Free Bama Tunes for Life. Are you a "Free Tunes for Life" Member and in need of a new Custom Tune for your most recent Mustang mods? Then you have come to the right place, because AmericanMuscle is now offering a package of Two or Three Bama Custom Tunes for all the SCT and Diablosport custom tuning devices we sell!

Dyno Proven Tunes. Bama Custom Tunes have been dyno tested, refined, and tested again on our own fleet of Mustangs to ensure maximum performance gains, so you know you're getting the highest-quality tune available, each tune is created precisely for your Mustangs specific modifications.

Get Your Money's Worth. If you're shelling out money on an intake, exhaust, and other performance system upgrades, you need a tune to see the real difference (especially on the 2005 and newer Mustangs). A Bama Custom Tune will even improve the performance of a stock Mustang too!

Increase HP, Torque, Fuel Mileage & More. A Bama Custom Tune will dramatically improve gas mileage, torque, horsepower, throttle response and towing power - ditch the factory REV and Speed Limiters.

3 Custom Bama Tunes specific to your 1987-2004, 2005-2010 V6 Mustang:

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.

    2 Custom Bama V2 Tunes specific to your 2005-2017 GT, 2011-2014 V6, 2007-2014 GT500 and 2015-2017 EcoBoost Mustang:

    Performance V2 (87-93 Octane) - The Performance Tune offers a seamless blend of power, performance and drive-ability. Improving the overall driving experience of your Mustang, the Bama Performance tune improves vehicle acceleration, increases power throughout the entire RPM and improves throttle response with revised timing, fuel, and TiVCT maps. Automatic equipped vehicles offer an aggressive shifting map to provide more aggressive transmission settings. This tune is suggested for the aggressive daily driver that is looking for more "get up and go".

    Race V2 (91-93 Octane, *Unleaded Race Fuel, **E85) - The Race Tune is designed for maximum performance and ensures the largest increase in vehicle performance. Using the highest grade of fuel available in your area is mandatory as timing, TiVCT, fuel, and throttle response settings are very aggressive. Automatic transmission settings implement entirely new shift points, torque converter changes and firmness settings designed for Track use. This file is designed for "Track Use Only".

    *Customers are required to provide stoichiometric point of Race Fuel

    **E85 Forced Induction tunes are handled on a case by case and require consultation with Lead Calibrator.

      Nitrous (91-unleaded race gas) - Our nitrous option can be added to any of our previously mentioned tune options for 1988 to 2017 model years, but only for 91-octane unleaded fuel.

      Application. This Bama Performance Free Tune Update is for customers who have already enrolled in the "Free Tunes For Life" program. Tune Updates are available for all 1987 to 2017 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, EcoBoost, Bullitt, Mach 1, SVT Cobra and Shelby GT500 models, and can be programmed for Naturally Aspirated, Factory Supercharged, or Nitrous powered Mustangs.

      This just works really well and should be your first modification along with a CAI. Being able to update the tune as you mod is a great feature. Do it!

      I grew up in the 60's 50 HP would mean pulling engine and lots of machine work. Now a CAI and a tune is all you need.

      Mustang Tuner Risk and Reliability? Hi AM: I am interested in Bama custom tunes and the SCT wireless device. I have read about all of the praise for your custom tune product, but I am concerned about any downside issues such as tunes that are too lean and result in scorched pistons and / or rings. What assurances can you offer about product reliability and safety? I try to research the mods that have already been installed on my 2012 V6 to make the 'best' choices possible as my objective is to really enjoy this vehicle and not create a 'problem'. Thanks for whatever you can offer in addressing the reliability concern and risk. RLM


      • Hey, Our Bama tunes are always on the safe side of things to give our customers a peace of mind.

The Bama team has been tuning Mustangs for a long time, with tens of thousands of tunes sent out to our wide span of customers, we're very confident with the product we offer. We have 14 different AM company cars and a full warehouse on parts right down the street that our Bama team has full access to test anything they want! Testing is done on our DynoJet 224xlc, as well as local tracks/streets. We're constantly working to continue being one of the top tuning competitors on the market today!

      Send Back For Re-Tune I have the SCT eliminator chip and have made some changes to my car. I need to send my chip back for a re-tune, however I have misplaced my original packaging. What are the requirements for packaging?


      • Give our Bama team a call and they can get you all set up! They actually need to have a new tune order created for you and they can give you all the details on where to send it and how to package it also!

      Question Resolved

      Got a 2013 mustang 3.7, how do i get new tunes? I had a 2010 v6 mustang 4.0 on which i ordered a tuner for. Now i traded it in and have a 2013 3.7, how will i get new custom tunes for the new car? Do i have to buy the three tunes? Or do i get free tunes since I'm a current member, just not with the same car??


      • The Free Tunes for Life program lasts for the life of the Mustang that was initially tuned. Congrats on your upgrade, but yes you will have to re-enroll into the Free Tunes for Life Program for your 2013 - a one time fee of $150. Hopefully you set your 2010 back to the stock tune before trading so that your tuner is unlocked and will accept new tunes easily. If you have any other question or concerns, please give our Bama team a call! They can get you all taken care of!

        Great Tune!!

        I was very impressed with the Custom 93 Performance Tune, very noticeable difference, I just now put in an order for a 93 Race Tune, I am looking forward to installing that one!! I must mention the customer rep I spoke with "Mike" he was VERY helpful and VERY patient with me (I must have asked him 600 questions) and he never seemed to be irritated, he answered every one of my questions and made sure I was 100% happy, and I was!! American Muscle is an amazing company to deal with, the package arrived exactly when they said it would, I could not be happier, Thank you for the Excellent service, I will be ordering more in the future!

        Bama Free for Life Tunes - Outstanding Service

        2011 V6 Mustang - Sterling Gray / Premium / Automatic Bought my tuner with the free for life tunes. Right away I wanted some 91 octane tunes so I followed directions and placed my on-line order. Had my tunes the next day. I played with the various tunes and figured I'd try the race versions. Ordered them via their on-line process again, had my tunes in one day. Back to playing with my Mustang! It's really pretty interesting, the differences between the various tunes. I felt that both the street tune and the race tune shifted a little harder than the performance tunes. So I switched back and forth between the 88 and the 91 octane performance tunes for a week or two. For me, I really do prefer the performance tune. The car runs hard, and yes it shifts pretty aggressively, but I still think it shifts smoother than either the street or the race tune. That is part of what makes this so much fun, just playing around a little, driving a few days with each tune, finding the one you like the best. The street tune is supposed to pull a little harder in the low-end but it wasn't enough to really get my attention. The performance tune is supposed to pull in the mid-range and I think it does. The car pulls hard right up to the shift point, shifts pretty hard and starts pulling again. The race tune felt pretty close to the same but if shifts harder. It probably does pull a little harder in the power range (about 3500 RPM all the way through the shift). If the roads are wet you'd better not be sleeping on that shift from first to second. That 91 octane race tune will get up and go so if you're gonna choose off any of those older GT Mustangs you might want to muscle up :-) I always switch back to stock for road trips. I like it nice and smooth when I'm traveling. I also switch back to stock for a couple of weeks here, maybe a month there...just to keep the Bama tunes fun and fresh. Mustangs are supposed to be fun...Right? Later this year I'm putting a set of gears in. I don't even know if I'll need new tunes. But I know if I do, they'll be free and I'll have them very quickly :-) Mike - Albuquerque, NM

        I am currently still running the 87 street tune and this is hands down the best driving experience ive had with my mustang. This blows my previous Brenspeed tunes away and is very similar to Brenspeeds 91 tune. I cant imagine what it would be like running the American muscle 91 race tune and 91 tunes , it would be above and beyound :) Just waiting to have to refill my tank with 91 before i try those out. Now I see , American muscle does amazing tunes now and i highly reccomend them before the others

        Surprising Results

        I say "surprising" because I honestly did not expect the tune to be spot-on, first time, without any tune revisions. I've been told by other competent tuners that for a full bolt-on, wild cam car they would need to do datalogs and one or two revisions before I would have a driveable tune. I was even turned away by another very well respected tuner because of my intake and cams. So I decided to give BAMA a shot. I sent in the order and two days later, I had my tunes. The day I received my tunes, was coincidentally, also the day I finished installing my cams and springs. The moment I buttoned up my engine, I grabbed my tuner and loaded the first tune. Right away, it fired up and found its lopey idle. Took it for a test drive and there were absolutely zero issues. I was floored. I expected there to be, at the very least, some throttle hang or some A/F issues. Absolutely none. The car drove flawlessly. It accelerated eagerly. And it idled like a baws. I am speechless, BAMA. You nailed it. After multiple tuners told me that they either couldn't do it (without revisions), or couldn't do it unless I paid extra, or wouldn't do it at all, not only did you guys do it, but you freakin' nailed it. 5 stars. I'm sold. Customer for life.

        Bama Tunes

        The Bama tune was a perfect compliment to my 2012 Mustang. After loading the 91 octane Street, Performance, and Race tunes, I ended up sticking with the Race Tune. The performance difference CAN be felt, especially from 3k on up, whereas with the stock tune, my car would begin pulling strong at 4k on up. My car also only has the 3.31 gears and with this Bama tune will blaze the tires into third gear from a roll without effort. There are only two minor concerns I have (room for improvement): (1) I wish the turn-around time would have been quicker. It took several days for the tune to arrive by email. (2) The skip shift elimination feature was missed on the Race Tune. However, a quick phone call had this resolved and a new Race Tune was sent out within 15 minutes.
