    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.

        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.

        • The Bama 4-Bank Eliminator Chip will not work for the Vortech 4FA218-010L, as Bama does not tune for aftermarket superchargers.

        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.

            First thoughts

            Just received the chip on the mail, I'll update after install. But initial thoughts are not good at all. The chip was left unprotected in an oversized box, no data on the tunes installed, no Instructions regarding the switch and what is installed on what selection point on the dial. Very underwhelming initial impressions

            Worth every penny!

            I have to admit, I was a little skeptical with this purchase. I thought it would help but seriously, how good can a mail order tune be. Well let me tell you, I am thoroughly impressed!!! It pulled all the mods together and the car runs like the mods were made for it. The idle is smooth, the acceleration is strong, especially on the top end of the gears. There is no more exhaust smell when idling. The car just feels like it’s all in sync...finally! Thanks BAMA tunes and American was worth every penny.

            Stear Clear!!!

            This is a terrible product. My car has aluminum heads, cam, intakes, big einjectors, throttle body, etc so I bought this hoping it would keep the car from running lean and maybe give me a few extra horses. First chip came - high excitement. It didn't fit onto my A3M CPU without knocking some resistors out of the way. I called customer service and they said I could bend them out of the way or they would send me another one. I went the safe route and returned it for one that would fit as advertised. About a MONTH later I get the second chip in the mail. Same exact issue. I'm ready to have it in the car so I bend the resistors down as customer service had advised. It made my car run horribly, spew smoke and the fuel pump run continuously. I tried to give it time to learn the car as I'm sure it doesn't get the tune right straight away and nothing improved. I removed the chip and the car ran better and stopped spewing smoke. I still however have to fix the continuous fuel pump issue (internet says fried ECU - $300). Thanks for nothing, Bama. If you need your car tuned, spend the extra $100 and get it tuned by a dyno shop. It will save you money and lots of headaches.

            Switched from auto. to T5.

            Nice addition on my 91 Mustang. I converted to a T5 setup from an Auto. I am still running the A9P ECU and was having issues with idle surge and stalling when ruining the A/C. It helped smooth some of that out (I still had to make some idle relearn procedures at the throttle body). Not much of a performance gain but definitely smoother once it was installed.

            Didn't Work For My 89

            89 lx w/70mm throttle body, 76mm MAF, Cold air intake, 24lb injectors. W/the chip it didn't fix the idle could never get the idle to be smooth, you couldn't tell any difference between the 3 tunes, it caused the passenger side exhaust to run really hot, but the driver side was cold, running really rich. also the check engine light would come on too. From the reviews the chip work for a lot of people, but there was a few that it really didn't do anything for their car. I took a chance and brought the chip, but it did nothing for my car. In the end I took my car to a tuner he reinstalled the chip and dyno tuned it. Now it idles and runs great.

            Works well for mail order tune

            I gave it 4 stars overall based on lack of information of what occurs with file 0. With my switch set to 0 or disconnected the fuel pump runs continuously simulating a "fuel pump run on scenario" associated with a bad ecu. I do not like this at all and to me it would make sense to have this default to stock tune. I actually called about this and the customer rep only asked if other files worked correctly and received no explanation or information, that's way it is kind of thing. I suppose if taken to be dyno tuned this possibly could be the location of that tune, if that is reason this is setup this way then it'd be understandable. I honestly cannot tell a lot of difference between the performance and race tunes but I also know a few hp is hard to feel, street tune is definitely more docile. As far as performance gain I'm sure I gained some but with some practice mass air foxbodies can be tuned to run very well at wide open throttle with most all bolt ons and factory ecu. I did see major improvements in low rpm driveability and idle with XE274 cam, I'm currently running an A9P with 5 speed so it still idles high when coming to a stop in neutral as it is factory configured for an auto. The chip did help with running extremely rich during idle due to having long tube headers and no catalytic converters though I had to allow ecu/chip combo to idle then drive several miles to fully configure, factory ecu's do "learn" to adjust overall tune as needed and seems my ecu/chip had to learn some as well. Overall for a budget bolt on street car I highly recommend this as it does include "tunes for life" with any future changes.

Key on engine off the fuel pump just keeps running and red falt light on on the chip. Pulled chip out car ran great. So I called them and they sent new chip out ASAP and i installed and car started right up.. problem was is they sent me a chip with my original program.. so they took weeks to write/reflash yet another chip. I installed new chip today and BIG surprise. Key on engine off and the fuel pump just keeps running and no start and red falt light on on the chip. pulled chip and fired right up. All terminals are spotless! Hopefully next chip is right or I am done! Save your money and have your car professionally tuned.
