- 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.

96-98 V6s have dyno proven gains of 20 RWHP and 20 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.

Really great product
I really enjoy this product. I was in no way disappointed when recieving it. The race and preformance tunes really wakes up my sixxer. This product is a bit on the expensive side but with all the perks from Bama and the ease of use really makes it worth it. I recommend it for anyone wanting a programmer.Helpful (14)
I have a 97 V6 Mustang and I am adding a 56mm throttle body and 24lbs injectors, do I need a tuner for this?
A tuner like the Bama iTSX Wireless Tuner would be required to recalibrate for the injectors. Your throttle body will not require a tune.
Can I adjust boost with this tuner? I want to boost a 98 v6 but only to 7 psi. i want to know if i can adjust the level of boost from the turbo so I don't have to buy a more expensive boost controller that doesn't also come with a variable cam timing.
Bama is unable to tune for aftermarket boosted applications, so this tuner would not work for your application.
will this work on my 95 I have a 95 V6 mustang and it is OBDII certified and i want to know if this will still work on my car since it say 96-98
There were a few 95 V6 Mustangs with a functioning OBD-II port and if yours is one of them then it should work fine. I would suggest checking the OBD-II port with a code reader first to make sure it is functioning and not just a vacant port.
I own 2 mustangs I own 2 mustangs a 98 V6 automatic and a 2012 V6 6speed will i have to have one for each car or can this be used on both more interested in looking at what it's doing and not do much for the "tune" on the 12 but want/need the "tune" for the 98
This tuner is capable of working for both of your Mustangs but you wouldn't be able to have tunes loaded to both at the same time. With that being said the tuner could only be switched from one vehicle to another a total of 5 times before it locks to one.
What can i do with this on my car. I have a 97 mustang v6 and am thinking about putting 3.73 gears in the rear end. Will this help correct the speed on this year of car? Also, will this give my car any extra power with headers, CAI, and ported intake?
For the 1998 and older Mustangs like what you have the tuner wouldn't be able to correct your speedometer, you would need to get a Recalibration tool from Ford to correct this. The tuner would be able to make adjustments for your modifications to get more power out of the vehicle.
