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.

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.

not very good

It has a nice display but it cannot do some of the things that it says it can. You can not do a horsepower and torque estimate and the 1/4 mile and 0-60 times are not very reliable. It has a ton of readings

    not very good

    February 02, 2011

    It has a nice display but it cannot do some of the things that it says it can. You can not do a horsepower and torque estimate and the 1/4 mile and 0-60 times are not very reliable. It has a ton of readings that it will do (ie air intake temperature) but unless you do a lot of drag racing and actually need to know that kind of information it is a waste of money. I would definatly recomend a normal tuner and save the 500 bucks for something else.

    Wonderful tuner!

    February 25, 2011

    I am extremely satisfied with this tuner. The AM and Bama Custom Tuning staff were extremely helpful over the phone in handling my 8 million pre-sale questions, as I was very paranoid about messing with my vehicle's computer and other settings. But after speaking with them and now using this tuner in the last few days, I have no regrets at all. This tuner is very easy to use and very straightfoward in everything. Just plug into the OBD port, load the custom tune of your choice, and it gives you the instructions on the screen to walk you through it. There is absolutely nothing to worry about. The touch screen is absolutely flawless to me; I don't see how anyone can call it the worst ever; maybe he's comparing it to an Iphone, but either way, this tuner's screen has beautiful graphics and has given me NO problems at all in its ease of use. I like all the features this tuner offers such as day/night display modes, adjustable brightness and sound, and the performance features for quarter mile runs, 0-60, 1/4 mile runs, braking distance, and top speed, making it very easy to get a rough estimate of the car's performance without having to go to the track every time. I have only loaded the 87 octane street tune at this time, as I have not yet filled up the car with 93 octane yet. I will wait for springtime when the car comes out of winter storage for that. As far as horsepower results, I can't say too much on that yet, but on my first test drive I made a pass on the highway and it did feel stronger in the mid range, which is exactly what the street tune is meant to be for; Keep in mind, this is a tuner; this is not a supercharger. If you're expecting a 75-100 hp upgrade, you'll be disappointed. If you're expecting a 20-30 hp upgrade, you'll be very happy. The highest performance gains are meant for the performance and especially the race tunes, and I will report on that later when I use them. Just be realistic with your expectations and you won't be disappointed. To me, the best thing about buying this tuner from AM is having the Bama Custom tuning staff with the free tunes for life. It is more or less a peace of mind for making sure my future mods will work properly with the vehicle by having them tune the vehicle for those parts. Easy enough. The only slightly bad thing about the tuner is the battery tends to be drained pretty quickly when it's mounted on the windshield mount and not being charged, but just remember to charge the tuner with the cable when you're not in the car. I must say I am a little stunned to read some of the negative comments on this tuner. This tuner does everything it says it does and I have no complaints whatsoever about it. Obviously there are other SCT tuner choices, but I do believe I got what I paid for with this more expensive tuner. Many thanks to the Bama Custom Tuning staff and AM. Thanks!

    American Muscle is the best yet again

    December 16, 2010

    This tuner is a fantasic tuner, touch screen is pretty responsive and the bluetooth works great. The free tunes for life from American Muscle is superb, it's like having your own specialist tune your car. Shipping was also amazingly fast, ordered on Tuesday and got it on Thursday, cant beat for free shipping. I highly recommend any mustang owner to buy from American Muscle.

    SCT TSX Touch Screen tuner

    October 14, 2010

    So far I have really liked the TSX. I had the livewire but it was stolen out of my car. I wanted the wireless unit so I could hide it more easily. I like how easy it is to change between tunes depending on the fuel octane in your area. My only complaint is the mounting bracket. I like that you can lock the arm in place but the tuner still flops around on the ball that connects it to the base.

    TSX Touchscreen Programmer

    October 14, 2010

    This Programmer is absolutely amazing! The wireless adapter eliminates all of the bulky wires that get entangled with your feet and legs while you are trying to drive. The features are almost limitless, many sensors are made to retrofit to the car and can be read through the programmer (such as exhaust temps, intake temps,etc... This is well worth the money and can fit in your center console with no problem whatsoever! Ya its twice as expensive, but honestly, you do get what you pay for when it comes to this item! Would buy again if it were to be stolen =)

    Best Tuner Ever

    October 14, 2010

    This is an awesome tuner! it had alot of features that i wasnt aware of and it was fairly easy to use. The gauges and diagnostics are great and programing is very easy and fast! There are a few downsides tho, its battery powered and it can get pretty tricky connecting it to the bluetooth on the OBD2 port. But so are i think it is paying for itself after 8 months!

    What I like about the touch screen xtreme is that it has a good selection of gauges to pick from, And that's about it. It came with no instruction manual, in which you can get from the site, but for $800 you shouldn't have to do that. The unit feels really cheap for $800, the touch screen is difficult and probably the worst I've ever used. I'm not able to change back grounds like the ad says you can, and to top it off I haven't been able to tune my car once. It just blinks and does nothing. It was easy to install. If it did everything it says it could, it would be a great product. (except for the cheap touch screen.)
