- JLT Performance Cold Air Intake (05-09 Mustang GT) - Installation Instructions
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.

tuner review 05 gt
This tuner and air intake was the boost i needed to feel like i'm driving a race-car, never experienced more than 300 horsepower but this car feels like a rocket for an auto when you floor it in race mode 93 octane, spins through 3rd and goes sideways at 30 mph if you let it. mustang didn't do this stock, for a 15 year old car this is a perfect add on great product,Helpful (2)

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 (0)

Worse purchase I ever made at American Muscle.
The tuner will not accept the tunes. Call American Muscle and they tell me to call Bama. They are open only Monday through Friday 9 to 6. I work 8 to 6. Took off early and called them. It says they are all busy and hangs up. So you have to keep calling back. 30 minutes and still no answer. Will be sending back and start purchasing my mustang gear from CJ Pony parts.Helpful (3)

Easy Install and Noticeable Gains
First off, the shipping was quick. Once I got it, install was a breeze. Tuned the car to it. Very noticeable throttle response and power gains. My car had another brand on CAI on it prior to changing to this and the difference is night and day. It looks great under the hood and does what is said it will do. By far the best intake system I've had on any of my cars thus far.Helpful (5)

Great product! Work as it should. Bama tuning spot on!Helpful (1)
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.
Why won’t this product work for the 2013?
This tuner will work on any ODBII mustang.
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.
its completely safe you can drive a infinite miles. check engine will came on because there's more air flow incoming thought the mass air flow sensor so check engine will turn on after your tune check engine will turn off because maf sensor will be recalibrated
This intake will not be CARB legal.
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.
This JLT Performance Series 3 Cold Air Intake requires a custom tune and will not work properly with an off the shelf tune file (OTS). We would highly recommend speaking to a tuning shop or Bama Performance regarding your application and the necessary tune file.
Please reach out directly to our customer service department by either sending in an email request over to email@example.com your order number in the subject, by chatting in with our live chat support team, or by giving us a call directly at 1-877-887-1105 as we would be glad to see what we can do in terms of a hardware request here.
When combined with a tune, the JLT Performance Series 3 Cold Air Intake will provide performance gains of up to 25-30 HP and 20-25 TQ
Your Rev-x tuner will absolutely work to tune for this JLT Performance Series 3 Cold Air Intake! You will just need a new custom tune for installation.
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.
Yes - there will be combo kits available once the SF4's are available to be shipped. Keep an eye out!

Increase your mod's potential. Factory computer settings are calibrated for the original factory components. When making performance modifications, you need to recalibrate the vehicle's computer to realize the full potential that these modifications can achieve.
Free tunes for life! Every customer that purchases a 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.
Custom Bama Tunes specific to your vehicle. When you order a tuner, you aren't just getting a tuner - you are getting the tuner and 2 dyno-tested custom Bama tunes:
Nitrous (91, 93, E85, Race Fuel) - Our nitrous option can be added to any of our previously mentioned tune options, but only for 91, 93, E85, or Race Fuel.
Technical Note About Fuel. Use of E85 will require larger fuel injectors such as Injector Dynamics ID1300 or Ford Racing 47lb/hr Injectors. Unleaded race fuel can also be used, but Stoichiometric points must be supplied.
Easy to load; easy to restore. Not only are the custom tunes easy to load on your vehicle, it is just as easy to restore your factory settings. When you load your custom tune on the vehicle, the tuner automatically stores your vehicle's factory settings. To return the vehicle to its factory settings, just plug the tuner back in, select the option to restore the factory settings, and you're done.
