- SCT iTSX Wireless Tuner w/ 2 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.

1999-2004 GT and Bullitt Mustangs have dyno proven gains of 21 RWHP and 34 ft-lbs of Torque or more on Bama Custom V2 Tunes. By optimizing the air/fuel ratio and tweaking spark 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.
Designed for the aggressive daily driver or weekend warrior. Bama's Performance tune provides more power than the stock tune along with increased throttle response and improved shift firmness.
Designed for Race use. Bama's Race tune delivers maximum horsepower and torque with aggressive transmission settings and a sensitive throttle response. 93 Octane or higher fuel is highly recommended.
**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 valid for as long as you own the car that was originally tuned and is non-transferrable.

Does the Job.
Does the tune that I needed too, however, they do not mention that you are not able to do everything with an android. I had to borrow a Iphone to be able to use the tuner fully. Also I never received an email for a personal tune for my car with current mods.Helpful (0)

Absolutely amazing! A must have if you are going to modify your car in the slightest bit. I was running on a stock tune with a full exhaust and a BBK cold air intake and a couple of other things for a while. I ran the tune and it’s absolutely amazing. Best mod you can do for your carHelpful (2)

Bama iTSX tuner
Tuner does what it says, I like the bluetooth so there are no wires I can really tell the difference after loading tunes. I leave the 93 tune in my car. I've had it about a month no problemsHelpful (2)

2001 white GT
To sum it up. Got the iTSX, checked for an update. It was updated!! Paired to my phone. Extracted the tubes from email. Plugged it into my ECU, BAM. Fried MY ECU!!! There was way to much technical stuff for the consumer to do with this tuner. And based on my experience, there where no safety parameters in the tuner to protect my car from it damaging it. Had to be towed to Ford,ECU replaced and programmed!!! Tuner was sent back to AM!!! Very expensive lesson for me. And yes, I've used tuners before! No problemsHelpful (6)

The tuner arrived on time but did not have the tunes pre-loaded that was specified when ordered. But that was quickly remedied through email from Bama. The instructions were easy to follow loading the tunes on the iTSX tuner. The custom tunes was easy to flash to the EEC. The only issue I had was, when switching from iPad to iPhone, you have to sometimes reset the tuner as the Bluetooth will not connect. I am still trying to figure out how to get the gauges to fit on the screen correctly (they are oversize) on the display and you only see part of the gauges displayed. Overall its a good tuner, very compact so you can keep it in the glove box and re-flash on the fly.Helpful (5)

I have it 5 stars because of the user interface and ease of updating. It’s real easy to use even without the quick start guide or directions. The only downside is I had to dig an older iPad out of the closet to use the tuner. It would get 6 stars if SCT would update the firmware to work with newer IOS devices using 10 or higher.Helpful (5)
I read that some heavily modified cars might not be able to be tuned by the mailed in tunes, and I would like to know if my car falls into that category, it's a long list, so here goes, I have the stock 4.6, just rebuilt with new Pistons, rings bearings, stock bore, BBK long tube headers, X-pipe with cats, Borla cat back, professional products typhoon intake, 75mm throttle body, upper plenum, BBK 86mm mass air calibrated for 24lb injectors, Ford racing EV6 24lb injectors, ngk plugs and O2 sensors, msd coil packs, 255lph fuel pump with high flow fuel rails, under drive pulleys, SR cold air intake, stage 2 clutch, fidanza flywheel, aluminum drive shaft, 3:73 gears and a pair of Anderson Motorsport N-22 camshafts, so a tuner and custom tune is about the last thing I need before starting on the outside looks of the car
BAMA should be able to write tunes for your vehicle, but I'd recommend calling BAMA tuner directly to discuss your modifications further. You can reach BAMA by calling 1(888)226-9764.
Just installed a refreshed 4.6 into my 2002 GT, and under lower RPM's heavy acceleration it seems to buck slightly. Car is a 5 speed and the speedo is off as well, thinking previous owner installed gears. With this tuner, could I see any missfire counts or injector ohm's, to help find my hesitation / bucking? No engine light on.
Give us a call we may ask you to do a datalog we may be able to fix the bugs for you.
Multiple vehicles I was thinking about buying this but wanted to split the cost with a family member. I have an 03 Gt and he has a 99 GT. Could we use the same iTSX for both vehicles and get separate tunes for both?
In order to tune for two different Mustangs, you would need two different tuners. Once a tune is loaded to the computer, it becomes locked to that car. You would not be able to share one tuner for the two Mustangs unfortunately.
can it disable pats Does this have the ability to disable PATS?
We are able to disable the PATS but we don't disable it within all the tunes. Essentially we have to be notified that you need it disabled to make those changes within the tunes.
5.4 tune I have a 04 GT and plan on putting a 5.4 with custom performance parts in it. If i bought the SCT tuner now and used it on my stock 4.6 will I be able to get a custom tune for the 5.4 when i swap engines?
While the device itself can be used on any combination, we do not provide custom tunes for engine swaps. You would need to take the vehicle to a Dyno facility to have the combination properly calibrated and dialed in to ensure safety and maximize the drive-ability and performance of the vehicle. Hope this helps!

What's in the Box
Power and Performance. Now you can add dyno proven gains of 21 Horsepower and 34 ft-lb’s of Torque and improve the overall performance of your 1999-2004 GT or Bullitt Mustang with a SCT iTSX Wireless Tuner that includes 2 Bama Custom V2 Tunes. By optimizing the air/fuel ratio, adjusting ignition timing and tweaking variable cam timing, a Bama Performance Custom V2 Tune will squeeze out the extra power Ford left on the table. Automatic transmissions will see an even greater gain in acceleration and drivability, as the tune also adjusts shift points and firmness.
Increase Your Mod's Potential. From the factory, Ford programs their vehicles to cater to the needs of the daily driver, not the performance enthusiast who adds aftermarket bolt-on modifications in search of more power. When making performance mods, you will need to recalibrate the vehicle's computer to realize their full potential. A Cold Air Intake kit alone on a 1999-2004 GT will net around a 5HP gain, but couple it with a Bama Custom V2 Tune and see dyno proven gains of 30HP and 40 ft-lb’s TQ or more.
Android and Apple Device Compatible. The iTSX App lets you control the vehicle-tuning and monitoring capabilities of the iTSX Wireless OBD-II Interface, the first and only "Made for Android and Apple" vehicle tuner and OBD-II monitoring product on the market. The iTSX Wireless OBD-II Interface plugs into your vehicle's OBD-II diagnostic connector, and communicates with your Android or Apple device via a secure Bluetooth wireless connection. Please Note, the Tuner will NOT connect to Apple products through Bluetooth with the latest iOS update.Free tunes for life! Every customer that purchases a Bama Tuner is enrolled in the "Free tunes for life" program. Any time that you make additional mods to your vehicle, our team of SCT certified Bama Custom Tuners will create new tunes for you. Just send us a list of the part or parts you've added and we'll email the new tune files to you.
**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.
