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.

  • Handheld Tuner based off of SCT's premier LiveWire Tuner

    September 23, 2010

    I'd like to first mention that I added the CAI and programmer to my stock 2004 GT that has an automatic transmission. Instead of adding both at the same time, I chose to try the programmer separate from the CAI because I was curious as to how much of a difference programming could make. To say the least, I was thoroughly surprised and happy with the change after adding the programmer. You'll notice your car shifting at much higher RPMs when you put less pressure on the gas than one would normally give for an easy start. The response time of the transmission's shifts are much tighter (almost to my disliking). Not only will you notice a change in your transmission, you'll also notice a small change in horsepower. The CAI adds a very slight amount of power to the car, so little that I'd say it was almost unnoticeable. Installation of this CAI took me about two and a half hours (mostly due to me watching the video of the installation rather than reading the paperwork step by step). Overall, the product is good, and you'll notice a change that's ultimately for the better and very noticeable overall.

    Wonderful Product

    August 27, 2010

    This was a great product. Works just as it says, and you can definitely feel an increase in power. I bought a package deal with a tuner and installed both at the same time, so I cannot say it how much of the increase is from the tuner and how much from the CAI. I will say the installation time is not correct. The CAI was very hard to install on my 2001 Mustang GT, and took a friend and I over 2 hours to get it installed correctly.

    This is a great combo. Was thinking of going with a different CAI a cheaper one, but glad I did not had a BBK in my 1st mustang. I really did not feel any difference. I paired this up with the BBK 78mm throttle and I can feel the difference. Tried the car out before tune and I felt the pull, but then after the tune was in that is when I really felt the hp and torque. Before any mods car would spin the tires a bit maybe about 10 15 ft. Now I can almost say that when I tested it spin the tires about 30 40 ft, tires would spin in shifting into 2nd and 3rd. I have an auto I would definitely recommend this product. Don't know about gas mileage if it approved probably not since you will get on the throttle a lot more.

    The cold air was relatively easy to install. Only word of advice is to follow the part of the install guide when putting the elbow for the filter assembly on. toss it in the microwave for 20sec and put a little soapy water on the inside. Will make life much easier. If u have the 99-early 01 like I do, don't forget to drill ur hole for the IAT sensor before u put it all together. do that and u can have the install done prolly 30 min. oh and take the tire off. Tuner was really simple to install, plug and go. Made a significant difference in the performance of the car due to the mods I have. mods include, accel coil packs, jlt cold air, ford racing shorties, bassani x pipe w gutted cats, flow master catback, and 4.11 gears. would def recommend. and American muscle is on point w shipping. I ordered either a Thur or Fri and got Mon.

    JLT CAI & SCT Tuner combo kit

    December 13, 2011

    To start off I thought both productucts were made of good qaulity and are worth the buy. I stalled the JLT CAI first with mild difficulty. Me and a buddy installed it within 45 minutes. I love the black finish and how massive this thing is in person. The only things I didn't like were how little space you have to maneuver this thing to get it in the right place. With a few adjustments thought, it's in there for good. Also the oil cap has rubbed a little paint off of the CAI but doesn't matter since it's pretty much hidden. Now the tuner I just installed it a couple days ago and I've got to say I'm impressed. It takes some getting used to with the different shifting at higher RPMS ( I have a automatic) but after driving it these past couple days it seems natural. I loved gettin on the gas and being jerked back in the seat, it was defiantly a surprise. Overall the throttle response is better, shifting is better and more crisp, and the little added horse power I noticed is great! Exactly what I wanted and glad I bought this product thanks AM!

    Great Product!!!!!

    June 01, 2011

    This product came in a timely manor. I was impressed with the JLT intake. Great quality as everyone has said. Once installed I could not believe the difference from the stock intake and the huge JLT intake tube. The intake was a little time consuming but far from complicated. I loaded my tune for 87 octane in 15 min. Then took the car out. The increase in the mid range is extremely noticable. I raced my girlfriends 09 Cali Special GT and walked away from her!!! Very pleased with the product and the results. I would recommend to everyone.

    worth the money

    November 26, 2010

    I am gonna start with the bad, but first my car was a 01 auto gt bone stock except for an x pipe the previous owner had done. the CAI was a little more challenging to install compared to others that i have done before. i don't like that the MAF is inside the finer well either. That is the only two complaints i have. other then that it looks great under the hood and AM did a excellent job with the shipping. i installed the CAI the day i got it and drove it around for the remainder of the day and you notice a little gain but not a lot. Made the exhaust tone a little deeper as well. I came home that night and opened the tuner watched a video and within 15 mins of plugging it in the car i was running the performance tune. i must say that it made an impressive change on the way the car performed. i ran my buddies WS6 and i beat him buy a little less the two links. i drive around with the street tune in to conserve gas but the power is still their if when you want it. i have yet to plug in the race tune but i plan to when i get my 4:10 gears, BBK 78 mm throttle bodie, and under-drive pulleys.

    What A POWER DEAL!

    October 15, 2010

    The CAI was installed by a shop and the Tuner was ready. The horsepower and feel really gave my 2000 GT the Horsepower Punch I needed! Definitely worth the ride for every rider and driver. It is definitely worth the buy!! Don't go without this..
