Hi I’m Justin from, and I’m here to show you what you can expect from using the SCT 4 bank eliminator chip complete with 3 Bama tunes for your 87-93 5.0L Fox body. A custom Bama tune would make a great addition to any Fox Mustang, whether bone stock or heavily modified, improving many areas of your cars performance. Our experienced Bama performance tuning team asks you a series of 19 detailed questions about your ride and its modifications, and then custom tailors 3 different tunes, to get the most performance out of your ride and all of its modifications. This tune is going to optimize your Mustangs spark timings and air/fuel ratios, resulting in increased power, better throttle response, and overall better drivability when compared to your factory tune. One of the best features with this SCT chip and Bama tune is the addition of this dial selector, now this basically allows you to switch between tunes on the fly without having to turn the car off, or wait several minutes for the tune to download like you would using a traditional tuner. Now that we know what the tuner does, and some of its basic features, let’s find out how much power it’s going to make on our GT. In order to do so, we need to grab a quick baseline run first using our Dynojet, just to see where our car stands now. With our baseline run out of the way, we need to get to work installing our tune, doing this on your Fox will require you to move, and slightly disassemble your car’s computer which is located under the passenger side deck panel, you’ll also need to route that variable adjustor switch to an area of your preference. While this is all pretty easy stuff to do, it is a little time consuming, and that’s why we’re going to call this one 2 hours from start to finish. If you do get stuck at any point, you can always reference the detailed instructions located on this page, they should help you out. With the tune uploaded, let’s make another pull here on the Dyno, and see what kind of gains we’re looking at. Our baseline run with our 93 GT gave us 207 horsepower and 270 ft/lbs of torque, with our SCT chip and custom Bama tune combo, we put down 217 horsepower and 285 ft/lbs of torque, making a peak gain of 10 horsepower over our baseline numbers, and gains of 10 horsepower and 16 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. The SCT 4 bank eliminator chip loaded with a Bama custom tune is an easy and affordable way to add some real horsepower and torque to your Fox Mustang, and they can both be found right here at

Increased HP and torque. From the factory, Ford programs their vehicles to cater to the needs of the daily driver, not the performance enthusiast. After loading the custom Bama Tune on a vehicle, even a bone stock, unmodified Mustang will realize noticeable gains in HP, Torque, and Fuel Economy.

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.

Switch Tunes On The Fly. One of the biggest benefits of a chip over a tuner is the ability to switch between tunes at a moments notice. There is no need to wait minutes for downloads to complete, just turn the dial and your ready to go.

Easy to load; easy to restore. Not only is the SCT 4-Bank Chip easy to load on your vehicle with the supplied 6ft cable and dial selector, it is just as easy to restore to your factory settings with the turn of the dial.

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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

**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.

MAF first? I have an '87 GT that still uses the Speed density ecu instead of the newer/better MAF and ecu. Should I hold off on this tuner until I make the switch? I have been hesitant to do any work on the motor because from what I understand the speed density system will not compensate for increased airflow causing a lean condition. Could I get this tuner and be able to run cold air and headers before the MAF swap?


  • Switching to MAF is a much better idea, but this chip will work with both. The Bama Performance team can write you a tune for your speed density setup and load it onto this chip and ship it out. When you convert over to MAF and want to get it updated, just mail us back the chip and we'll make the adjustment for free! That's the great thing about Free Tunes for Life! Hope this helps!

Track gains on my 93 5.0? I was wondering what kinds of E/T and mph gains I'll see at the track. I have a moderately modded 5.0, trick flow heads, holley systemax intake, 70mm throttle body, long tube headers, true dual catless pipes, 3.73 gears and a few others...i got it doing 13.5@105mph, i just wanted to know if I'll see much difference in E/T and mph with a Bama tune? Thanks


  • Typically you will see .1-.2 gains in ET and 2-3 MPH. While these may seem like minimal gains, you will notice better throttle response as well as HP and Torque gains. Good luck at the track.

I'd like to order a Bama 4-bank eliminator chip for my 89 fox. What do you need from me to ensure it comes with appropriate tunes?

Can you tune an 88 gt with a FMS-M-6007-X302 crate engine. The car is running the FMS-M-6007-X302 crate with a cobra intake 30lb injectors, tuned headers, 70mm BBK throttle body, cold air intake, and a 76mm airmass matched to the 30lb injectors.


  • We do offer tuning for that crate engine. Although the 30lb injectors may be a little to large and could cause some idling issues to occur. We would suggest running a set of 24lb injectors as they would be a little better matched for the set-up.

do i have to take my car to a dyno before buying Do i have to take my car to a dyno before being able to buy this chip and when i do more mods to my car do i have to get it dynoed then to have it retuned or how does the retunes work


  • You would not have to take the Mustang to a dyno before getting the chip or for new tunes. Depending on what the mods are we would be able to get the chip here and build up new tunes for you based on that. If you are having issues we may need to help troubleshoot a few things to get it squared away but in most cases a trip to the dyno wouldn't be needed.

    A Worthy Addition

    I am the original owner of a '92 Mustang GT convertible which is garage-kept and pampered. Each Summer I do a little extra, and this year was BBK C.A.I., MAF, 70 mm. T.B., E.G.R., and SCT 4-Bank Eliminator chip. I found all of the generic directions to be ineffective, so I had to follow my instincts. The following detail may help the next customer. After popping off the kick panel, the computer was almost totally obscured by a number of multi-wire cable connectors. They all have individually designed connector "shapes," so don't be intimidated. Spend the time to CAREFULLY disconnect these harnesses. The computer was held in place by a very tight-fitting, plastic harness, which holds the computer in place. This harness will be discussed during the reinstall. I was happy to find that my computer board J3 connection was protected with white grease. This made careful board preparation much easier, but this step does require your attention. I double-checked the contact issue with a digital meter to verify continuity. After the SCT board and cable is plugged into the J3 port connection, I carefully taped over anything that could case issues during the reinstall. Now, the plastic harness will not accomodate the computer; because the computer with the added SCT board will not fit into the smaller harness. I was able to use the harness by simply cutting the long plastic strip right above the bottom anchor. I also found that I was able to visually check my work by removing the glove compartment door. I was now able to carefully position the padded insulation behind and above the computer without stressing the SCT board. This additional step also made the reconnection and repositioning of all of the wire harnesses much easier. I ran the cable across the dash to the center console, and I currently have the cable and switch hidden underneath the ashtray, directly behind the floor shift. I will be enhancing the final switch location with the purchase of a bezel. All of the modifications have made a dramatic difference in performance. It's been a good Summer.

    SCT Eliminator Chip

    I've had my Eliminator chip installed for almost a week now, and the difference in the behavior of the car is like night and day. Prior to getting the chip, the car had serious idle and off-throttle issues. Coming off the gas and pushing in the clutch would cause the engine RPMs to drop below idle speed. Sometimes the car would catch itself and stay running, but sometimes it would stall. Even if it did catch itself, the idle would usually surge which also sometimes caused the car to stall. With the chip, the car idles beautifully, all day long. It's like a normal car now! Much less stressful and much more enjoyable to drive. If anyone is having similar issues with their car, I would recommend giving this chip a try. I tried all the other mechanical fixes - new idle air control valve, recalibrating the throttle position sensor, etc. This is the only thing that worked. In my opinion, it was well worth the money. My car is also fairly heavily-modified, but the team at Bama was still able to write me a tune. My engine mods are as follows, in case it helps anyone out with their decision: 302 bored .030 over 10:1 compression Trick Flow Twisted Wedge Track Heat 170 heads 1.6 roller rockers FRPP E-303 cam Full MSD ignition BBK shorties Flowmasters Edelbrock Performer RPM II upper and lower intake Pro-Flow/Pro-M 75mm Bullet MAF BBK cold air fender pipe Edelbrock 70mm throttle body Electric Fan Be-Cool radiator etc... Just trying to show that Bama can still tune heavily-modified cars with a mail-order tune. I'll confess that I had my doubts, but they did a great job and it cost me a fraction of what a custom dyno tune would cost. Would a custom tune squeeze out a few more horsepower? Maybe. But in my opinion, it's not worth it unless you have forced induction or an extremely complex set of modifications. If you're on the fence, go for it!

    SCT Chip

    Ordered the chip and got it quick, however, it had the wrong tune (a stock tune). There is very little stock on my 93 coupe 5.0. I went ahead and plugged it in anyway. It drove a little better nothing to brag about. Called tech and sent it back for a retune. Got the chip back a few days later and BAM! What a difference a correct tune makes. Drove the car around the block and it felt good so I then drove it through town and it felt better, I then drove it to the next town, by this time I was looking to spank any new Camaro, Challenger, or new Coyote Mustang I could find. It felt awesome and corrected my idle issues and ran like a champ. As far as the gas mileage who cares. For people worried about gas mileage get a Hyundia or Kia. If you want power get the chip. Great buy!

Now you know. 300 bucks, I was expecting at least 300 dollars worth of something. I could have bought one of those electric superchargers ....Somethin. Very disappointed. I still tell people it works wonders, im ashamed to say it does not, i did spend ALOT of money on it...Bummer

    After reading all the "bad @$$" reviews left by other people, I decided i would try this chip out. Well i ordered it, everything went exceptionally smooth, and installed it into the back of my computer. I guess i didnt read the instructions right and left off a little bit of required sanding of the terminals, so i had to take the chip back out of my computer and do it all again. After i installed and started my engine on the 93 octane tune, i noticed my engine RPM stayed up a little more than stock during the duration of my shifts. Other than that, i havent really noticed a significant difference in power or torque. I often times switch from 93 performance tune to stock tune to try to see a difference, but i just cant see one. I say give it a try...if it works for ya then it works for ya, but it didnt work for me.

    Just really bad

    Was really excited to use it especially with the tunes it comes with. After installing it car sounded awesome for about a hour then when I test drove it car seemed to have lost of power alot more than a stock tune. So I switched up the performance tune. Then the car started to turn off at 4k rpm. So I out the chip on stock tune and the car just keep turning off 5 minutes of driving. Ended up removing the chip and drove 100x better with the sct chip removed. Wasted my money.

    Good and bad

    I'm very mechanically inclined and had no issues removing my computer and cracking it open to get my chip installed. However my disappointment came when I went to reinstall my computer into its factory plastic brackets. The chip was hitting the top of the plastic and not allowing the computer to go back into its factory positioning in my 93 cobra. As far as the tunes go. The tunes seem to add a small amount of power. Nothing that is going to make you say holy cow. Idle quality was improved on first start up. After driving the car for a short time, the car began to do a lot of searching while idling. High low RPM etc. Directions for a novice person could easily be confusing. In the listing for the chip it says advantage to a multiple tune chip is shift on fly between tunes. That is misleading as instructions clearly say to change tunes only with engine off.
