Justin: Hey, everybody. Justin with AmericanMuscle.com here with my buddy Paul from the Bama Performance team and the car you guys all know and love, right? Our 2015 GT that went 10’s on motor, 9’s with the nitrous and if you guys haven't seen it, what are you doing? Subscribe to our YouTube channel.

Now, guys, we've been hearing a lot of questions on YouTube as a matter of fact with this car. Guys, what's up with the tune in that car? Can I have that in my 2015? Well, here with me now is a guy who can answer that for you. Paul, tell these people what they want to hear.
Paul: Now, they can absolutely have this tune. This is our version two race tune that we do make available for everyone in the public. They'll likely do all of our testing on the dyno. We've spent thousands of miles testing on the street. We test our race tunes at the race track. Now, obviously, this is designed for specific race fuel but if you're running that exact same combo, we're going to make this available for you. If you're running a different gas, maybe E85, or even 93 octane, the skeleton is still the same. We're just going to make the adjustments for the fueling and the spark if you have a change in gas.
Justin: So you tell me I have a blast manifold car basically full bolt-on, long tubes, exhaust, I can throw in some race gas, you can send me the exact same tune that's pretty much in this car?
Justin: There you go. How about Nitro slides, you guys are going to offer some Nitro support?
Paul: We are going to offer Nitro support. This car does have a 150 shot in it. However, for our mail order customers, because of a lot of variables, we're only tuning up to 100 shot.
Justin: Nice man. Let's stop talking already. Let's show this guy what they want to see, the numbers with this setup, so I'm going to get out of the way and let her rip, sir.
Well, Paul, any runs that are in the book, sir, what are we looking at number-wise?
Paul: Now, the car lay down 463 wheel horsepower and 400 foot pounds of torque.
Justin: Now that's up huge from, of course, the bone stock runs at 366 and 353, about what you expect to the bone stock 2015. So over that we're making about 97 peak horsepower, 100 horsepower throughout the curve and 80 pound feet of torque throughout the curve. I mean, just humongous gains and something somebody at home can get just with a few mods and a help with a dev tune, right? There you go. Well, guys, now it's time to get this 150 shot in the books here, so I'm going to get out of the way one more time.
Well, Paul, let's dissect this Nitro's number now. What are we looking at?
Paul: The car made 588, 685 foot pounds of torque.
Justin: Absolutely huge from a little 150 shot, right? I mean huge amounts of torque. That's pretty much indicative of running nitrous, right? So we're looking at 125 peak horsepower over the NA numbers. And then curve gains; get this guys, 226 horsepower and 306 pound feet of torque underneath the curve. Absolutely ridiculous. Paul, with numbers like this, I mean, obviously the race tunes are doing their job. But why would people want to run the performance tune you guys also offer?
Paul: Now it's called the race tune because it's really designed for race use only, but we take everything we had learned at the track with our race testing and we apply that all in our performance tune. And, really, you're almost going to make pretty much the same numbers. They're just designed for that aggressive daily drivers, something for the street.
Justin: There you go. Well, as you can see, Paul has been working very hard on the tunes here. You guys all know this car. Again, then you see how it's making this power, you see the numbers here on paper, so if you guys want to pick up a Bama tune for your ride, you should know where to get it by now.
