Justin: Hi everyone, Justin with AmericanMuscle.com with Paul from the Bama Performance Team here to talk to you about the benefits of using the Bama SF4 Flash Tuner loaded with the custom Bama V2 Performance and Race Tune on your '05 to '10 three valve GT. Now, Paul, obviously the main benefit or purpose of using an aftermarket Tune is to make your car faster. How is the Bama Tune going to help in that regard?Paul: When we're calibrating a vehicle, we've got completely different expectations and regulations than the factory, and the OEMs leave a lot on the table, and there's just a lot for us to do. So we're modifying the fuel maps, spark maps, a complete reconfiguration of the drive by wire systems. And for the automatic guys we do a whole new shift schedule map, torque converter changes as well.Justin: Very nice, and now we're doing the Performance and we're also doing the Race Tune. Can you explain the differences between the two?Paul: Correct. Our Performance V2 Tune is really designed for that daily driver or the weekend warrior to offer a seamless blend of driveability and maximum power whereas our Race Tune, that's pretty much maximum power, maximum torque leaving nothing on the table with really aggressive throttle response, really aggressive shift schedules; for the automatic owners, really sensitive throttle, pretty much disabling all of the torque management and some other additional modifications that we make.Justin: Very cool, very cool. And what Paul didn't mention, of course, is that with Bama's Free Tunes for Life, as your car's modifications grow, Paul and his team will write a new Tune for each and every mod so that you can get the most performance out of your setup. So Paul's going to get out of here for now. I'm going to talk a little bit more about the benefits of the actual SF4 Tuner itself, but then we're going to run the car, the '07 GT behind me, and we'll see what kind of numbers you can expect.Breaking down the Tuner itself, you can see the SF4 does feature a compact and sleek design with a rather large full color LCD screen. Now, that screen is fully customizable and offers different colors and themes available through the menu. Now, another nice thing with this large screen is that it does feature a landscape mode. You can even turn the Tuner sideways for a different view which is helpful during datalog sessions as I'll talk about in a minute. So why the larger screen? Well, as I just mentioned, the SF4 does feature on-screen gauges and data logging similar to what you would find on more expensive models, like the ITSX or even the SET Live Wire, for instance.Now, the on-screen gauges are fully customizable as is the layout and is capable of displaying up to eight different values at one time, including your car's air fuel ratio, boost, intake, air temperature, and RPM, just to name a few. And again, all of which can be data logged with a simple touch of a button. Other features with the SF4 do include built-in Wi-Fi which is a nice little touch allowing you to take care of this future firmware updates wirelessly. The SF4 still can hold up to 10 Tunes at one time like previous Tuners, and it is still capable of reading and clearing those diagnostic trouble codes, again, just with a simple touch of a button.Now, guys, if you do have any more questions about the SF4 itself or about the new Bama V2 Tunes, I strongly encourage you to head back to the product page at AmericanMuscle.com, if you're not there already, to read up on some more details. But more importantly, you can read up on what other three valve owners are saying about running a Bama Tune on their own ride. Now that you know a little bit more about the Bama SF4 handheld Flash Tuner, let's find out just how much power you can expect out of your '05 to 10 GT with the help of a custom Bama V2 Tune.First, I'm going to walk you through the process of uploading your Tune. Then I'm going to get Paul back in here, run the '07 GT one more time and just see what kind of numbers we can expect.First thing you're going to want to do is locate your car's OBD2 port. Now on the '05 to '10 cars, it's going to be on the left-hand portion of the dash underneath. So go ahead and plug the Tuner in and wait for it to power on. Now, once the Tuner actually powers on, you're going to want to navigate to the Tune you wish to select. Basically just hit the Okay button a few times to make sure the key is on. Then we're going to go ahead and upload our Bama Race Tune. We'll select that one. It loads it, and then basically from there you're just going to follow the directions listed on the screen here, and you should be good to go.Now if you guys should have any questions or problems about uploading your Tune here with your '05 to '10 GT, don't hesitate to reach out to a Bama tuning expert. So with our baseline run already in the books and the Tune uploaded, Paul's going to hop back in the '07 GT here, make another hit on the Dynojet just to see what kind of numbers you guys can expect with your ride.Our baseline run with our 2007 GT gave us 269 horsepower and 296 pound feet of torque at the rear wheels. With the Bama Tune uploaded, the corners now making 283 horsepower and 310 pound feet of torque at the rear wheels which makes for a peak gain of 14 horsepower over those baseline numbers and gains of 17 horsepower and 18 pound feet of torque throughout the curve. All the bolt-ons in the world won't do anything for you or your ride without a quality Tune to bring it all together.So if you're looking to truly maximize the performance of your '05 to '10 three valve GT, then you're going to want to check out a Bama S4 Tuner loaded with the BAma V2 custom Tunes here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Not Worth The Money
***DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!*** Their tunes are not good and provide no type of support unless it’s off the shelf bolt ons. There was multiple things I asked them to tune for and the said no without hesitation or even an attempt and told me to go to another tuner. Do not waste your time and get a dyno tune locally or for 3v’s go to lito. DO NOT BUY THIS.Helpful (4)

Impossible to get software.
It should be just straight forward, but no, you have to go get unobtainable software and try to get it installed on your computer while trying to learn from an outdated video. Would not recommend.Helpful (0)

Why won’t this product work for the 2013?
This tuner will work on any ODBII mustang.
Description suggests 17 RWHP and 18 ft-lb's using the tuner....description for Tuner and Airaid CAI list the same 17 RWHP and 18 ft-lb's....AM catalog show Tune and CAI as 35hp....confused. Can you comment?
Hello! We will work to get that conflicting information corrected. The combination of the Airaid Race CAI and BAMA X4 Tuner will yield gains of up to 35 HP and 30 TQ.
I am running ford performance cams and cold air intake. Will this tuner tune my car correctly?
The Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner can utilize a Bama Performance tune for camshafts and a cold air intake.
with the 93 octane tune will I have to run 93 octane gas?
Yes, with a 93 octane tune with the Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner you would need to run 93 octane. If you are worried about not being able to find 93 octane you can request a 91 octane tune and run 93 when you can find it. You can run a higher octane but never lower.
I have a 2008 mustang GT that has a Bama custom tuning member plate in it. I don't have the tuner, or any reliable information on the modifications made to the car before I bought it. I will be purchasing your tuner but was wondering if I provided the details on the plate and Vin number could you work out a stock cam tune and the last known tune for the cams that are in it. Thanks
We would recommend contacting BAMA directly to see what information may be available from the previous tunes, and what they may or may not be able to do with any information they can locate.
Hello A, That intake is carb legal in California as designated by its CARB EO number D-640. many shops will require a sticker which you would be able to call us in to receive. So any intake that has a stated CARB EO number in the description will pass emissions in Cali.
You will need to get a tune update from Bama Performance for the tire change. This will be a free update you just need to get in contact with Bama Performance.
Yes, you will be able to change gear ratio and adjust the speedometer.
Hello! The Bama will write a tune to get the best possible performance for your car. It will also be able to bypass your downstream O2 Sensor
The Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner can be used to install custom tunes as well as restore the car to the stock tune, provided that the stock tune is on the vehicle when the tuner is first used.
If you mean the sensor itself, then yes but the car needs to be tuned. The kit comes with an aluminum housing you plug the original MAF sensor into.
Yes - there will be combo kits available once the SF4's are available to be shipped. Keep an eye out!
