Hi I’m Justin from, and I’m here to show you what you can expect from using the SCT 4 bank eliminator chip complete with 3 Bama tunes for your 87-93 5.0L Fox body. A custom Bama tune would make a great addition to any Fox Mustang, whether bone stock or heavily modified, improving many areas of your cars performance. Our experienced Bama performance tuning team asks you a series of 19 detailed questions about your ride and its modifications, and then custom tailors 3 different tunes, to get the most performance out of your ride and all of its modifications. This tune is going to optimize your Mustangs spark timings and air/fuel ratios, resulting in increased power, better throttle response, and overall better drivability when compared to your factory tune. One of the best features with this SCT chip and Bama tune is the addition of this dial selector, now this basically allows you to switch between tunes on the fly without having to turn the car off, or wait several minutes for the tune to download like you would using a traditional tuner. Now that we know what the tuner does, and some of its basic features, let’s find out how much power it’s going to make on our GT. In order to do so, we need to grab a quick baseline run first using our Dynojet, just to see where our car stands now. With our baseline run out of the way, we need to get to work installing our tune, doing this on your Fox will require you to move, and slightly disassemble your car’s computer which is located under the passenger side deck panel, you’ll also need to route that variable adjustor switch to an area of your preference. While this is all pretty easy stuff to do, it is a little time consuming, and that’s why we’re going to call this one 2 hours from start to finish. If you do get stuck at any point, you can always reference the detailed instructions located on this page, they should help you out. With the tune uploaded, let’s make another pull here on the Dyno, and see what kind of gains we’re looking at. Our baseline run with our 93 GT gave us 207 horsepower and 270 ft/lbs of torque, with our SCT chip and custom Bama tune combo, we put down 217 horsepower and 285 ft/lbs of torque, making a peak gain of 10 horsepower over our baseline numbers, and gains of 10 horsepower and 16 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. The SCT 4 bank eliminator chip loaded with a Bama custom tune is an easy and affordable way to add some real horsepower and torque to your Fox Mustang, and they can both be found right here at

Increased HP and torque. From the factory, Ford programs their vehicles to cater to the needs of the daily driver, not the performance enthusiast. After loading the custom Bama Tune on a vehicle, even a bone stock, unmodified Mustang will realize noticeable gains in HP, Torque, and Fuel Economy.

Increase your mod's potential. Factory computer settings are calibrated for the original factory components. When making performance modifications, you need to recalibrate the vehicle's computer to realize the full potential that these modifications can achieve.

Switch Tunes On The Fly. One of the biggest benefits of a chip over a tuner is the ability to switch between tunes at a moments notice. There is no need to wait minutes for downloads to complete, just turn the dial and your ready to go.

Easy to load; easy to restore. Not only is the SCT 4-Bank Chip easy to load on your vehicle with the supplied 6ft cable and dial selector, it is just as easy to restore to your factory settings with the turn of the dial.

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 on increasing mid-range power.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

**NOTE: Programming custom tunes may take 2-3 business days plus applicable shipping time. We recommend ordering other products separately to avoid delay. Heavily modified cars are not tunable with a mail order tune. Click for restrictions. Membership in the Tunes for Life program is is valid for as long as you own the car that was originally tuned and is non-transferrable.

I have a 1989 lx 302 with a 347 stroker, strike force 1 210 heads, shorty headers, 100 wet shot, and an x303 cam. Fuel injectors, intake, and all igniton components are stock at this time. From reading some of the questions/comments I see that other people have been able to use this chip with similar mods. My question is when I purchase the chip, will I be able to tell whoever is taking the order what my current set up is? Thanks.


  • When any order is placed for a Bama tuner/chip a email gets sent after purchase of a tune sheet for you to fill out. This is were you would put all your information about your car and send this back to Bama performance.

I bought the car a few years ago, I've done cai, headers/xpipe/exhaust and c-6 trans but am not sure what was done previously. Would this still work for my car?


  • To ensure that your custom tunes were correct we would need as much accurate information you could provide, down to the fuel injector part number and manufacturer. I would recommend calling BAMA Performance directly and talking with a Tuning Specialist about your car to determine what we would need to get a proper tune for your car.

After install break in Is there a break in period for the chip? Will the car run roughly for the first few days?


  • There is no break in period for the chip. Simply install the chip into the Engine computer and select the custom tune you want to run from the dial.

Can the Tune keep my cats from burning up at idle? After doing a mild motor rebuild. E303, GT40 Heads, 1.7 rockers, and Mac Shorty Headers I intended to maintain the cats on the car or at least high flow cats, but once all was done it would burn up the cats at idle / red hot. Once stock H was pulled it was fine with off road H, but I would like to be able to put a Catted H pipe so I can be street legal since this car gets a lot of street time. Please let me know. Other mods: 24lb injectors, bbk 65MM TB, Summit MAF Calibrated for 24lbs, bbk CAI, Upgraded 255 Fuel pump, Under drive pulleys, 3:55 gears


  • It's possible that the chip will help with preventing the cats from overheating. It would be best to get an A/F reading from the exhaust to see if its running rich or lean as that would be the culprit to the issue and knowing the exact changes that would need to be made to correct for this.

Is it true the chips mess with the o2 levels?


  • Using a chip to tune the vehicle can alter the A/F ratio but I wouldn't say it messes with it. If anything it is used to help put your A/F ratio into its optimal spot for making reliable power.

Questions about the Tunes Would the free tunes work in my situation? I have a 5.0 with Trick flow heads, ported Explorer intake with 70mm TB and Crane cam. Its an 88 with a MAF conversion with a C&L meter with 24 lb injectors.


  • With the mods that you have done, we are able to create tunes on the chip for you. If you were to run into idling issues or have a Dyno run made and can get us the A/F ratio, we would be able to make adjustments to the chip to correct for things like this. There would be no additional cost other than the shipping to get the chip to us.

    Product performed as advertised.

    Install was fairly easy, directions were clear enough. just be careful putting the computer back in, it doesn't exctly want to go back in there with the chip sticking out of the top. Don't expect a whole lot as far as performance gains, but the drivability is vastly improved.

    IT ACTUALLY IDLES!!!! I have an old worn out foxbody vert with a bunch of cobbled up junk on it. I've owned the car since 91, and it has never ran this well. Idle is dead on, throttle response is great, and it is once again fun to drive.

    Performs as advertised.

    This product really makes the full bolt on combo with heads cam intake swap work together!!!!!!! Idle surge and stalling are things of the past. Before the chip it would run rich and Idle erratic. Even after your typical adjustments. After the chip install I couldn't believe my ears!!! The car now idled, and you can hear the cam doing it's thing. And the throttle response is now there. I would recommend this product! A must to make all those expensive parts work together. Best bang for the buck!!!!!!!!!

    I was skeptical of mail order tuning,spent several hours on the web researching BAMAs ability to tune,and read every review i could find.90% of customers rated BAMA very good,and i also agree.My built motor now has stock driveability and more power.Also,2 minutes after buying online i got a call from BAMA to verify my mods,3 days later it arrived.I will say on a A9L you will have to modify your ecm case for clearance.Overall,I am very satisfied.

    I have an 88 gt convt. I did the air mass conversion kit . added an gt40 intake with 24lb injectors, 70 mm throttle body and an e303 camshaft with a 5 speed trans, and 355 gears . Car ran ok, no matter what i done it just wasnt right. It would act like a carburated car when it was cold , sometimes it responds ok and other times it acted as if the timing was wrong. I read quite a few comments with problems similar to mine. I was actually ready to sell the car. I reluctantly tried the chip and DAM!!!! IT WORKS!!! Install was easy , and now i can feel all the hard work i put in! Thanks to u guys , GOT IT RIGHT! Car idles great! Cam lope sounds greaaat with performance to match.

    OK for the money

    The product works, tested it on the dyno and gained a reasonable amount of hp. But with that said i can adjust the timing myself and gain HP....the thing that makes this nice is you can adjust between settings and it has a no start setting which keeps the car from starting unless switched!

    i have a 1990 mustang its all bolt ons and i needed it tuned for 24lb injectors and some emissions equipment bypassed, i am very happy with the outcome, no check engine light the car runs extremely smooth on street 87, and perf. 89 , it really makes use of the higher octane with the race tune, extremely fast response and just overall great but for driveability i use street tune. even if you have a stock or lightly modified fox id recommend letting bama tuning help you! btw it only took roughly 30 min to install.

    Street Heat

    My mustang has every bolt-on you can think of and it was fast... So i thought. After installing the 4-bank eliminator chip my BAMA tuned mustang took on a whole new level of performance. My mustang is not only faster (I picked up a whole second at the track) but gets excellent gas milage. The increase was staggering I was averaging 14 in my convertible, Now I average 18 miles to the gallon with a heavy foot. The chip gave the car incredible acceleration off the line with no impact on drivability. This upgrade is a no brainer.

    Great product. Power gains and acceleration are about what I expected. This product wont turn your car into a street burning machine on its own but if you have mods it will make them run better. I run the car on race setting and premium gas and it runs great. Clean shifts and peppy acceleration, not to mention better mileage. If your car is anything like my 92 expect to modify your computer harness. Installation was tricky but once it's in it's a great product.

    Not going to lie, PAIN IN THE @$$ to install. apparently on 88 mustang gts the case for the computer isnt big enough so i ended up bending internal pieces when i installed the chip itself. everythings was still held in place so i was lucky i didnt damage my computer. Once i had everything back in place I started the car, no problems at all. This is thing really brings out the hidden ponys in your car. I was shocked when i barely tapped the gas and the car seemed like a bat out of hell. Really sweet upgrade.

    Great tuner

    Great chip, I put mine in over a year ago and love the performance of it, the only thing I don't really care for is the fact that you have to take the chip out and mail it off to update it, I recently update the tune files since bama came to Americanmuscle and and they seem to have a better hold on how to tune than the previous company, I had my redline on the sixer raised to 6000 rpm's and I lobe the race tune, it has amazing throttle response and definently pulls harder than before, I also got the performance tunes on both the 87 and 93 tunes for just driving around daily but I love the race tune so much I don't think I wanna switch back to the others :)
