    Hey what’s up everyone? I’m Justin from 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.

    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 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 iTSX, 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 iTSX automatically stores your vehicle's factory settings. To return the vehicle to its factory settings, just select the option to restore the factory settings, and you're done.

    **NOTE: Programming custom tunes may take 2-3 business days plus applicable shipping time. We recommend ordering other products separately to avoid delay. Some heavily modified cars are not tunable with a mail order tune. Click for details.

        I’m relatively inexperienced with tunes and computer stuff with cars. My mustang has a t-56 transmission swap in it, tuning the car with this tool will not affect it at all?

        • Bama writes their tunes so your Mustang is safe, however considering your transmission swap I would recommend speaking with Bama directly to confirm they can tune for your application.

        Hey! I'm currently struggling to start my beloved 98 Cobra due to a PATS(personal anti theft system) issue. I've come to believe after many different tests, my actual PATS module is bad. Mainly due to it still throwing the "engine disabled" code. Even after the computer has been flashed and after 2 new keys were programmed. I believe this tuner is the way to go if somewhere in the coding actually disable the PATS system altogether? So my question is, will/does this tuner be able to disable the PATS for good? If not, what do I need to disable it?

        • The Bama iTSX Wireless Tuner could possibly disable the PATS system. Within the coding for the tunes it is possible to write the disabling in but it is not a guarantee that it will work. There has been certain instances that the coding within the tunes still did not disable the PATS system. I would suggest calling BAMA to speak with them directly regarding the ability to disable the PATS system in your vehicle. 1-888-226-9764

            97 Cobra she lives

            This tuner is exactly what the car needed. I have a 1997 Cobra with over 184,000 miles on it. I've only done small things to the car so far. Long tube headers, x-pipe, some slp loudmouth v2 mufflers or lack there of and a drop in KandN air filter. But I was having a problem with a check engine light and my car running lean cause of not having cats. Well I was able to turn the rear o2 sensors off and it fixed everything. The car runs so much stronger. Throttle response is alot crisper. I feel a improvement in power. Haven't been able to take it to the track to see if it's improved my quarter mile time but it feels faster. Only use the performance tune so far. Haven't had a chance to try the race tune. But overall well worth the purchase. And with more upgrades it will be even better.

            Excellent bang for the buck

            Very straight forward install. The Bama support team is very responsive and helpful. I did feel the power gain immediately. The only cons are that the Bluetooth connection isn't the most stable. You have to forget the device and re-pair it. Very minor issue. The other foreseeable issue, is my friend recently bought a supercharger for his mustang, and Bama no longer supports after market forced induction. So, I'm not sure what I'll do when I buy a blower for my car. That being said, I think it is an excellent buy.

            Tuner on my 98 cobra

            The tuner was easy to use and I noticed much better pull off the line, the engine idle is consistent, with the stock tune and the bolt-ons it would constantly fluctuate. The magnaflows really come to life when I hit 3K rpm. With the performance tune on though, my fuel economy has gone into the tank, about half of what it was. The only issue is the documentation is sparse. There are all sorts of gauges on the app but I am unsure how to use them and what they mean. I guess I'll have to spend some time at the SCT site. All in all, I am very pleased with this purchase.

            97 Cobra Tuner

            Glad I finally bought it. The improved timing makes it sound better, run smoother, and no more code for the off-road x-pipe. Noticed overall improvement, I still need to get a cold air kit though. Works well with my iPod Touch. Love having access to gauges. I was concerned that it might get in the way of my foot/leg. No worries, it is small enough, that it's completely out of the way. I'm sure the unit is even better on newer models that allow for more computer tweaking.

            Very cool idea, did not work with my Android Bionic, it won't connect via Bluetooth to the tuner. After reading reviews on the Android Play Store, about 25% of all people are having the same issue. I do not recommend this tuner until SCT develops an app that works across all Android devices.
