Description
Bama Custom Tuning at AmericanMuscle. Power. Performance. Personalized. Proven
  • Power

    96-98 GTs have dyno proven gains of 20 RWHP and 30 ft-lb's of Torque or more on Bama Custom Tunes. By adding more fuel, optimizing the air/fuel ratio and tweaking variable cam timing, a Bama Custom Tune is proven to squeeze out the extra horsepower that Ford left on the table.

  • Performance

    Drastically enhanced throttle response and a much more aggressive throttle map will dramatically improve your Mustang's acceleration, shaving tenths off your quarter mile time while throwing you into the back of your seat every time you smash the gas. Automatic transmissions will see an even greater gain in acceleration and drivability, as the tune adjusts shift points and firmness.

  • Personalized

    For each and every Bama Tune, we ask you 19 questions about your specific Mustang, including your unique set up and intended use, in an easy to use web form. This information allows us to write an entirely custom tune just for your specific vehicle to ensure we deliver the most power and performance possible.

  • Proven

    Our Bama Custom Tunes are developed in-house on our Dynojet 224xLC chassis Dyno. Hours of research and development through street, track and dyno testing/datalogging left us with fully refined custom tunes. The Bama Performance team has exclusive access to our inventory of parts.

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 on increasing mid-range power. 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 Use Only", as the timing, fuel, and throttle response settings are very aggressive. It is 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. On 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. 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.

**NOTE: Programming custom tunes may take 3-4 business days. We recommend ordering other products separately to avoid delay. Some heavily modified cars are not tunable with a mail order tune. Click for details.

    SCT Tuner

    January 30, 2011

    I couldn't wait for the email asking for this review. I can't believe how much my GT has come alive with this tuner! It is an amazing product! I have not had a chance to install my under drive pulleys yet ( also purchased from A&M ), I am having to much fun with this tuner. If any one is debating about getting a tuner, DON'T buy it and you will be surprised also with the gains and other options it has to offer. Thanks to A&M for making ordering this product so simple. I almost forgot... Thanks for the calender sent with my order!

    SCT LiveWire

    January 03, 2011

    I bought my SCT LiveWire for a few reasons. One, to calibrate the speedometer for the 3.73 gears, to have a shift light, since let's face it, who likes sacrificing a good run by going off of engine sound, or constantly looking down at the gauges? My third reason for purchasing is the main reason, the custom tunes! They're great. My engine was sort running of sloppily before the tunes, due to running a catback, X pipe, and CAI on the stock tune. The SCT LiveWire has fixed all of that, and actually offers real world results. My speedometer is now calibrated, I have a shift light which is very useful, and even with the 87 octane street tune, I noticed a big gain in throttle response, and a slight bump in power. Especially down low. The SCT LiveWire is pretty much an all-in-one device, and I'm very pleased with it. I'd certainly recommend it to anyone else.

    Nice system.

    September 28, 2009

    Slight loss of gas mileage for a lot more aggressive gearing and power. The free tune was very knowledgeably done when dealing with aftermarket parts. Would recommend!

    good but....

    May 24, 2010

    it is a really good turner and got good horspower out of it but its 0 to 60 times horse power and ftlbs is off. i got it dyno tuned a few days after getting the product i got ratings of 130 to 150 horse power out of the tuner and about 200 ft/lbs which is far less than a 30,000 mile gt thats modded. i have headers exaust cold air turner and throttle body so i should be at least at 300 horses. when tuned i got 364.7 horse power and 398 ft/lbs so the tuner was way off. i did enjoy the added power tho but its not as great as others seem to be getting.

    This item is very useful

    June 19, 2012

    This product is quite useful although it seemed very minimal power gain that could be from stock engine parts ! Being able to change shift patterns and other features is great and the fact I am able to change tunes with each mod is great! Very easy to use and understand!being able to read the codes is great also
