- SCT Mustang 4-Bank Eliminator Chip (88-04) - Installation Instructions
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.

I have a 306 with a pro bullet rotating assembly, svo y303 heads, b303 cam, 1.72 rockers, cobra intake, 24lb injectors, pro m mass air flow, cai, shorty headers, auto to manual swap. Ran the car with a stock a9p for a while never was perfect installed the 4 bank eliminator chip today and WOW what a difference. Idle doesn’t hang any more throttle is instant, all around runs awesome. Thanks American muscle.Helpful (2)

I ordered the Bama because I had the trick flow upper kit installed on my car ( heads,cam, upper and lower intake) along with injectors and throttle body. I thought this kit would adjust to the new amount of air and fuel coming into the engine. Well no dice, I called and then sent a second one and still the same. I’ll probably have to go with a dyno tune. Great customer service just don’t like the chip.Helpful (3)

I purchased this chip earlier in the year, it has caused my car to have multiple issues running after being installed. I have since uninstalled the chip in hopes of returning it. Not sure if it is defective or if my tunes were written wrong but after writing American muscle to do a warranty return I received no reply!Helpful (8)

It works but barely
It came with Zero directions on how to install, no tune locations. I don't know which number holds which tune. I'm scared to run my car and now have to pay for new tunes because I don't know which tune is which and don't want to kill my car because of it.Helpful (10)

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 impressionsHelpful (10)

More hp 1991 fox Mustang
With the three tunes you have a choice of hp option. I have only used the first two tunes. The second tune made my car a beast. More than enough for the street.Helpful (1)

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 Muscle...it was worth every penny.Helpful (8)

Built a bronco, and converted computer system to the same set up as a 93 cobra............ truck is setting on 37s....... bama tunes breathed life into the beast......... absolutely a noticeable differenceHelpful (5)
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?
When you order the Bama 4 Bank Eliminator Chip, you will receive a tune sheet to fill out from Bama, so they'll be able to write your custom tune!
will this chip work with a supercharger upgrade, specifically the vortech 4FA218-010L?
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.
When you are looking to get a new tune, you would need to send this chip back to be retuned.
The Bama 4-Bank Eliminator Chip does not come with any base tunes supports up to 3 custom tunes that our Bama tuning team will create for your exact modifications which should take care of that rough idle.
Bama Performance would be able to tune for your set up using this chip yes!
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.
Our Bama team can turn off all the automatic transmission functions with our custom tunes as well as increase the performance of your Mustang using this 4-Bank Chip!
A tune can be written for a stock motor.
