- SCT iTSX Wireless Tuner w/ 3 Free Custom Tunes - Installation Instructions
Hey what’s up everyone? I’m Justin from AmericanMuscle.com and I’m checking out one of the coolest products we’ve seen come along for Mustangs in some time. I’m talking about this wireless iTSX tuner from SCT and Bama performance. This is not your standard issue tuner by any means, this has some really cool features and on top of all that works wirelessly using Bluetooth technology and a free app for your Apple or Android device. We’re going to check out all the cool features with this tuner in a minute but first let’s make some dyno runs to see what our Bama tune did to our 2011 GT. Now we’re going to use my iPad and iTSX tuner to upload our custom Bama tune. Upon purchasing this tuner you will receive free custom tunes from Bama performance specifically tailored for your ride. Our Bama specialists ask you’re a series of 19 questions about your particular Mustang and any mods you might have already done and then custom tailor a tune to make the most out of any existing mods. With that custom Bama tune you are going to optimize your spark timing, adjust your variable cam timing, get that air fuel ratio right in the sweet spot and get drastically improved throttle response. And with our free tunes for life you will be happy to know that any time you add a mod that requires a new tune Bama will create a custom tune specifically for that mod and email it directly to you. First you want to plug in the dongle to your OBD2 port, once your Apple device is paired up to the dongle go ahead and upload the custom tune into your iTSX program. Here you will follow the onscreen directions guiding you through the process of uploading your tune. Once the process is completed, your tune is uploaded and you are ready to rock. Now that we have our tune uploaded lets run our GT one more time on the dyno and see how well we did with our custom Bama tune. So here’s our baseline curve on our 2011 GT, and here’s what we got with our custom Bama tune, we put down 379 Horsepower and 358 ft/lb of torque, that’s a peak gain of 21 horsepower and a gain of 31 horsepower and 37 ft/lb of torque throughout the curve. Now that we’ve seen proven results from our custom tune let’s get our GT out of the shop and on to the streets and check out some of the other cool features the iTSX tuner has to offer. Now besides being able to handle our tuning capabilities with ease iTSX is also loaded with a lot of other bells and whistles. Now one of my favorite parts is this onscreen data logging and OBD2 real time monitoring; now this will display all sorts of other information on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch that’s easily readable on the fly. As you can see here we already have a nice big tack, also with our air/fuel ratio, intake air temp sensor, and also our coolant temp sensor. Now these layouts are all customizable depending on the driver to better suit your needs. Another one of the really cool features about this iTSX tuner is the built in performance test, here you will get a general gauge on how fast you do the 0-60 time, your 1/8th and 1/4th mile times, your top speed performance and also your 60-0 performance. Now since we don’t have the luxury of being at a drag strip today we’re just going to test out our 0-60 time in the parking lot and see how accurate it is, so here we go. Press start, and hold on. According to our iTSX tuner we just clicked off 0-60 in 4.1 seconds, which is pretty accurate for this car considering we have 4.10 gears. Our brake time from 60 was 2.7 seconds which is very impressive. Our horsepower and torque numbers are right on par with our Bama tune numbers, we’re looking at 378 horse and 393 ft/lbs of torque. Now while these numbers are not going to be exactly the same as our dynojet numbers I got to admit they are pretty darn close. Now the cool thing is when you are done with this you can hit send, there you go, right in your email ready to be shown to all your friends. Once you’re done that it’s in there ready to be shown to all your friends. Every gear head loves gadgets especially when those gadgets make your car legitimately faster, with our custom Bama tunes, this iTSX tuner does just that and so much more, so if you are looking for a really cool product with all the bells and whistles you could ever want be sure to check out this tuner from SCT.

Features, Description, Reviews, Q&A, Specs & Installation
05-10 V6s have dyno proven gains of 16 RWHP and 21 ft-lb's of Torque or more on Bama Custom Tunes. By 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.
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.
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.
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.
This tune will get you the largest increase in performance. Designed for the "Race only use", as the timing and throttle response are very aggressive.
This tune adds power at 3000 RPMs and higher, focusing more on the top end HP and all out performance driving.
**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 like the overall wireless look an being able to use my Samsung tab to load an tune my Mustang only down fall is needing the patience to figure out how to use the sct wireless flash tune. But after figuring it out it wasn't that bad I personally will most like stick with the the wireless flash tune an hopefully in future reference hope that they do some maintenance on the app for it all so android is also capable of running smooth with it an not some dumb over expense apple..Helpful (0)

Free Tunes for life??
The product itself is great. It does increase horse power and torque. The more mods the more horsepower. What I didn't like is that they advertise free tunes for life when it should say free tunes for as long as you own your car.Helpful (1)

Almost there on Android, beware first custom tune
Honestly, from previous reviews I would have to agree. For the price this makes a huge difference. The problem I had was that on Android the Performance tests are completely broken. There is the Start button as it suggests. I have emailes several times and have recieved no reponse. One thing to watch is your custom tunes....make sure you check the rev limit. Mine were not enabled and was just about to red line. Just adjust options. The shifting options have helped immensly as well and the air fuel ratio modifications to make it more rich.Helpful (0)

Stopped connecting to my phone
It was great at first and the app was really cool but after about a month or two the device stopped showing up on my Bluetooth list and I can’t get it to work. The tune is still in my car but I can’t return to stock or change the tune.Helpful (5)

Bringing your v6 to life
Not going to lie at first a didnt see a difference and I had issue with it setting my anti theft device off. After a quick call to sct that was fixed. Then I figured out the more information you put in your tune request the more it comes to life and if you start adjusting things yourself and fine tunin to your liking. It works wellHelpful (5)

This is a good alternative to buying gauges if you want to retain the factory look.this will change your hp and torque so you mite need wider tiers. the only down side to this is that it does not come with the i phone or i pad. The Bluetooth works very well ounce you par it to your phone. Would recommend this to any mustang owners.Helpful (6)

Great !!! But..
I love It !! Soon as I got On the high with it , notice a huge difference especially with the extra mods . But the features and options are super limited . Only thing available to see is gauges .Helpful (5)
Can I use this to adjust Idle RPM's, stationary and moving rev limiters, on my own in addition to the Bama tunes like the Flash Tuner can, or would I have to wait on Bama to send my tune(s) for that?
You would not be able to make those adjustments with the device alone and would require a tune.
Does it come with a custom tune that'll remove the speed limiter or do you have to request tune for that specific function?
Custom tunes are discussed prior to creation with Bama, and written for your desired application.
Can I delete the airbag light after installing aftermarket seats with this tuner?
The Bama iTSX Wireless Tuner w/ 2 Custom Tunes would not be able to turn off safety features like the airbag light.
Does this work with the newest IOS 11.0.2?
The Bama iTSX Wireless Tuner is receiving new firmware for iOS 11 compatibility, and will be rolling out shortly!
does this tuner work for all samsung phones or all smart phones
The Bama iTSX Wireless Tuner is compatible with all Android Phones as well as all IOS (Apple Iphone) that have not updated to the latest IOS update.
Hello! Yes this tuner will work to fix the timing issues for your GT
BAMA performance does not offer a specific economy tune at this time. All tunes will typically have a positive impact on fuel economy, however it will be minimal.
This is compatible with Android devices.
With our custom tunes we make the changes necessary to allow your car to run correctly while gaining power and overall performance. Our custom tunes do not disable the ECUs self diagnostic capabilities ensuring a DTC will turn on the check engine light if a problem occurs.
Yes, with one of our BAMA Custom Tunes we can remove the speed limiter; however, we always suggest following all posted speed limits
This tuner will work just fine on the new car. You'll need to set the old car back to the stock tune to unlock the tuner and have it ready to link with the new car. Also, the tunes for life program is non-transferable. To receive custom tunes for your new vehicle is a one time fee of $150.
The dongle would not need to stay plugged in at all times for the tunes to work. You would need it plugged in to load tunes or use the gauge viewer and other settings on the device. The dongle part is fairly slim so it shouldn't cause issues with keeping it plugged in for use with the app on your apple device,
Both our Street and Performance Tunes will help to improve your gas mileage. You could see gains between 1-5 MPG depending on the mods you have and your driving style. If you have any other questions, please give our Bama team a call and they'd more more than happy to assist you!
