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

    96-98 Cobras have dyno proven gains of 30 RWHP and 35 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.

  • RACE TUNE

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.

Will this tuner disable the factory PATS system?

  • Yes, we can turn of the PATS system within the tune. However it doesn't turn off the actual light, It just disables the PATS itself! I hope this helps!

    November 14, 2009

    The SCT Livewire did wonders for my 98 Stang. With all the bolt on MODS and custom exhaust, this black beautfy wasn't runnin right. Once AA's custom tune was uploaded the car INSTANTLY ran smoother - (for lack of better words). Follow the directions as prompted by the device and as directed by the instructions manual and you will smile instantly with the results. The check-engine and other options do as they indicate - AWESOME, AWESOME tunning device.

    SCT Livewire Tuner

    March 10, 2010

    Pretty great product, its very simple to use. You can change a lot of parameters on your car with either the preloaded tunes or the custom tune. Monitoring its pretty cool, download LiveLink from SCT's website and you can monitor 400+ parameters using your laptop in combination with the tuner

    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!
