    Hi I’m Justin from AmericanMuscle.com, 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 AmericanMuscle.com.

    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.

    Ask a Question

    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?

    StuckXJ

    • 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

    JohnTP

    • 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.

    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.

    Spoilt38

    • 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

    steinrdcounty89

    • 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.

      Replaced engine back exhaust with catalytic delete h pipe on a bone stock 1993 foxbody. Immediately after I started getting an idle fluctuation and quickly the car would stall out. The tune not only corrrcted the idle issue but has a noticeable power increase as well.

      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.

      Get it if you like frustration

      First chip I got worked great. Then upgraded my rearend gears and deleted cats so sent chip out for reflash.. Got new chip and car wouldn't run. 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.

      Bypass this all together

      Lots of issues with this type of setup and re-tune is not very user friendly in that the tuner will make decisions on their own and alter the chip the way they see fit and does not always work. My re-tune resulted in my car not running any longer. Put money in going Megasquirt would be much better option than this and the supporting items you need to make this work. ready to just throw mine in the trash I hate it so much.

      This chip went into a bronco and worked great

      I put this in a 1995 ford bronco 351w. The free job was for a Soldier coming back from Iraq. I put in a mustang ecu and harness, mass air, E303 cam, Trick flow heads, Edelbrock intake set, 24lp injectors. We ran it on a dyno did not change the tunes in chip and got 406 hp at the rear wheels and no check engine light on. All we did was set base timing. He loves his truck. Thank you for making chip for me.

      Had this for a couple of months now and it works great! The idle problems are gone! I’m assuming I can feel the performance gains because everything is working together now. Feels stronger, acceleration is awesome and the idle is perfect now. No more headaches. I thought too long about getting this. I’m very happy I decided to buy it.

      Best thing I’ve ever installed!

      I have an 87 Mustang convertible GT that was originally an automatic. I swapped it to a TKO600 five speed and did mass air conversion, trickflow heads, cam, cobra intake and all other bolt on’s. It had a low idle no matter what I did and when cold it would start up then die within a few seconds. With the chip it fires right up and holds idle at 1300-1500 for a few seconds then slowly comes down to 950-1000 rpms. Absolutely perfect idle for this cam. I’ve only driven it on cold roads since installing it in January and it absolutely blows the tires off in performance mode. I can’t wait for the roads to warm up so I can put the drag radials back on and see the difference but for normal daily driving it’s like a stock car with more power. I can leave it in gear below 1500 rpm’s without it bucking and jerking like it used to do. I absolutely recommend it and I’ll be buying two more very soon for my LX hatch 5.0 and my 93 Bronco that I did a mass air swap with a 98 explorer GT40 head engine with a E303 H.O. firing order using an A9L ecu from a 92 Mustang. My only regret is not getting this chip years ago for the bronco. A bucking bronco isn’t fun in heavy traffic.

      Several issues. Always same result

      So I am an automotive technician, master ASE cert. I am very well rounded, and my experience with SCT is good, but not so with the flash tunes done by BAMA (A.M. tuners). I have sent unit back 3 times because car will not run with their tunes. 2 or 3 years ago this all started, order, they flash, I install and my new motor will not run. Pull it off, car runs okay. Follow their advice, reinstall, not run.... anyway, learn to tune yourself, buy the moates stuff.

      Bama 4-Bank Eliminator Chip

      I am going to be as honest about this is as possible in hopes that I help someone else thinking about buying this chip. In all honesty I would’ve given it three stars because I did not really notice any performance gains, but it did help with the idle quality and the Drivability concerns that I was having with performance heads and a performance cam. The reason I did give it four stars and not three is because of the techs at American muscle are very helpful and are awesome to deal with! I was having the notorious hunting idle problem since I have a bunch of performance parts on my Mustang, the chip did smooth out the idle and it idles a lot better then it ever has before. If anybody is thinking about getting this chip because you’re looking for performance gains, if you have a bone stock or very lightly modified Mustang I would say pull the trigger. If you’re Mustang is already heavily modified and idling properly, then I would not personally recommend getting it. It is not a bad product, and the price is good for the quality, as it is the quality you have come to expect from American muscle. I hope this helps the next person thinking about buying this chip, as I’m being is brutally honest as I possibly can.

      Worth the money!

      After making the usual changes to my car; HCI, headers, injectors, gears, and exhaust, I needed to pull it all together and solve some idling issues. After pricing a dyno tune and knowing I had other changes in mind, i decided to forgo the expense for now and try the chip. This chip did the trick. Solved idling issues and running rich. And I definitely noticed a power increase. Not saying it is as good a dyno shop, but a good fix for someone on a budget. And the free tunes would help if you are not finished with your build.

      Fast delivery but poor attention to detail

      Bama tunes was very quick to turn my chip out and send to me. This was great, however the tune files did not match up with the number on the switch dial indicator and there was nothing in my paper work to state what tune is what number. Also, the small dial for selecting tune is tiny and extremely hard to mount. It would be nice it the item included a mounting system for the switch. Right now it’s an eye sore just floating around in the ashtray like a stray telephone line. I would prefer a mounting system and better dial selector vs. the aluminum personalized marketing plate that came with this item. Lastly, the tunes did not seem to work well on my car. I had to schedule time with dyno to correct. I might have been better off buying chip from my dyno tuner.
