Great customer service and no pinging
When I got the chip it was missing the cable. I called the next morning and the shipped second day to Washington. Tune is great. There is a noticeable power gain up to 6k and the race tune doesn't ping on 100.Helpful (7)

2003 Mach 1
So I recently bought a Mach 1 with a new long block with cobra heads and cams at an 8:1 compression ratio ( thing of a 2004 cobra with no supercharger.) It had issues with misfiring, stalling, and making all kinds of ungodly noises. It also felt like driving a dog. It was running on the stock tune! So I bought this chip, told them how the car was built, and a week later I installed it ( computer is a pain to get out). The moment I first starter the car, the tune was noticeable. The engine ran smooth, fast, and VERY responsive. Even my wife noticed a huge difference in performance. I'd say that I got more of a gain from this tune because of my situation, but would still highly recommend this mod for your stang. Thanks AM and BAMA for a great product.Helpful (6)

Pretty good for the price.
This chip helped with the idle drop my Mach was having and provided better throttle response. The selector switch is kinda generic. I haven't found a good spot for it so spend the extra money and get the coin delete switch if you can. I'll expect more from this chip when I get more modifications done to the Mach.Helpful (6)

Worth every penny, installed in 30 minutes or so. Took a ride on stock file just for reference, switched to my 93 race, WOO HOO is all I have to say. Instant gratification! Complimented my current setup. Great buy!! Easy to deal with staff as well, BAMA had specific questions for the tunes all the way down to the gear and size tire being used!Helpful (6)

Great Bang For The Buck
I installed the chip on my 2003 MACH1 and immediately noticed an overall difference in power and shifting characteristics. The car already had a BASSANI full exhaust (manifold back hi-flow cat w/x-pipe) LOVE the fact you can change tunes with the turn of a dial (would recommend getting the dial for the cig-lighter spot)Helpful (6)

This chip system was very easy to install. It certainly makes noticeable power over stock. power levels between the separate tunes are less prevalent. I would purchase this again, easy choice. I would suggest, however, even if you do not have a nitrous setup or whatever your planned next power adder may be, to go ahead an let one of the tunes be for this setup to avoid an immediate need for a retune. If I had it to do over I would have selected the 87, 93, and nitrous tunes as my base. No problems switching between the tunes on the fly. Shipping was incredibly fast once I sent in my spec sheet. Get one of the bezel options, or find the coin holder bezel. The switch unmounted is inconvenient. Great product for nitrous users, as we can have all power without the ignition retard until it's juice time, then turn the dial for a safe shot.Helpful (6)

4-Bank Eliminator Chip
Awesome product, It worked out well with my mods. My car had better throttle response and more snap to it when cruising around town. It installed easily and was worth the money. I would recommend this chip to anyone who would like a little more out of their car. Bama Tuning also did a great job of building the tune and answering any of my questions.Helpful (8)

You can really feel a difference in each level of the tune the only problem I have with the programmer is the fact that you can not change on the fly you have to shut the car down in order to change tunesHelpful (6)
I have a 02 mustang cobra export build for Australia and it runs our premium fuel which is 98 octane but we do have 91, and 95 e10. Can i have the tune to remove the 98 octane fuel usage and go to 91 or the e10 ethenol blend 95 octane as well as the performance it can offer.
Unfortunately Bama cannot tune for non-US/Canadian vehicles.
How to change the tunes If you were to purchase the chip how do you change the tunes in the future?
This 4-bank chip would need to be mailed back to our Bama Specialists for reflashing when new mods are added that require new tunes. You would want to give our Bama team a call so they can set up the new tune order for you and give you all the necessary information to ship the chip back.
Installing this chip to my slightly modified 2003 Cobra I have added a K & N air filter and a Magnaflow cat back exhaust to my 2003 Cobra. Will this chip work optimally with my Cobra "as is" or will I require that the "tunes" be modified by Bama???
The chip is blank and doesn't come with anything preloaded from SCT. This chip would require you to fill out the tune information form after purchase so we can make Bama tunes specific to your Cobra and flash them to the chip before shipping it to you. Tunes will certainly help improve your Mustangs performance with those mods. If you plan to do more modifications in the future, you might want to consider the handheld option as it's a faster, easier process to get new updated tunes. If you would like any further help deciding which option best suits your application, please give our Bama team a call.
chip or flash tuner This is for my wife's 03 Cobra that she bought new in 02 as a daily driver. After 10 years, she has agreed to let me install "conservative" mods. Christmas will include an exhaust and cold air intake so am looking for tuner/chip that is easy to install and operate for a daily driver that occasionally likes to light em up. Recommendation?
The benefit of the 4-bank chip would be the ability to switch between your tune files on the fly. The handheld tuner does not have that function; however with the handheld, new tune files can be emailed to you as you complete your upgrades. The 4-bank chip needs to be mailed back for reflashing when new mods are added that require new tunes. Unless you want the ability to switch tunes as you drive, I'd recommend the handheld tuner for your application. In regards to the tune files themselves, they're the same no matter which format you use. I've attached the link for the handheld below so you can take a look. If you have any other questions, please feel free to give our Bama team a call!
