do not buy this !!!!!!! my mustang ran horrible after installing the chip. frustrating thing is even when you pull the chip out you cant erase it from your ECM, so you have to purchase a new one just to drive your mustang again. DO Not Buy.Helpful (10)

Installation was a breeze, had already prepped the ECU and was just waiting for the chip. Noticeable difference that put a smile on my face. After a while though I tried to switch tunes, car would not start, fan came on displayed no mileage, would turn over as if in the security mode, on every single mode. Never got the car to start up again because it was later totaled.Helpful (13)

Worth the buy
I bought this product about a week and a half ago and I'm loving it! I immediately noticed the chirp in gears 1, 2, and 3rd on the 91 octane tune! My car is way more responsive. I recommend this part to everyone !Helpful (11)

Chirping into third
Shipping was fast, box and product was in order. Noticed my rpms hang but shifting is much smoother and the gear box felt softer and went into gear easier. Noticed a lot more power in 2500 to 4 grand. I have yet to try performance because when I Switched to performance, I noticed a clatter sound when I floored it. I had alittle under half of 87 octane in the tank and topped it off with 93. That may be my problem. I will find out soon. But the chip has came through on its promises so far. I waited awhile to order this chip because it seemed to good to be true. I finally gave in and so far I'm satisfied.Helpful (9)

Not at all what I thought.
I put the chip in my 2004 v6 mustang and I can feel a difference in the pedals but nothing else. Now that I have been told by support this chip only comes with 2 tunes not 3. And that there is not much of a difference in the 2 different tunes. For the price don't even bother.Helpful (15)

I have a 2000 Ford v6 3.8l base mustang with a few mods. Before chip insall my factory computer (because of mods)was leaning out my engine, however after the install it cleared right up! Very happy. Mods include long tube Dana motoring headers, coustom x pipe, cherry bomb glass packs, pro tuning cai and finally bama 4 bank eliminater chipHelpful (11)

Saved my Build
After a recent rebuild and v6 build up my car wouldn't start. The cars pats system was triggered and the car wouldn't start no matter what we did. I ordered this chip with all tunes having PATS disabled and the engine fired up no problem! I haven't gotten to use this chip on the street yet, but so far...it's saved my build,Helpful (10)

Figured there be more of a kick then this. You can feel a differences just very little. Probably won't let anyone to buy this product it's not worth it for the price...Helpful (11)
Chip vs. Tuner What is the difference in the chip and the tuner?? The tuner cost more than the chip but the but the chip picks up more horse power? And the chip also does better on gas?? How is that so?
First off, there are no differences in power or fuel efficiency with the chip and tuners. The reason for the chip is it works with OBDI cars which is anything '95 and older. The tuner works on OBDII cars because they have a port to plug into that's directly connected to the PCM. Now the benefit of the tuner is that you can make adjustments yourself, like for a different size tire or a gear change, you can correct the speedometer. The tuners can also read your trouble codes or check engine lights. The chip plugs directly into your PCM and the user has no adjust-ability available. I always suggest the tuner of the chip if you have an OBDII Mustang!
How do you change the tune ?
In order to receive a new tune you will have to place an order for the tune. Once that order is placed a return label will be emailed to you. You print the label out and send Bama the chip. You will also receive an email to fill out your tune sheet. Once they receive both the tune will be written and the chip sent back out to you.
I have an Amazon generic cai. Can the tune be installed for this or would I have to have a brand name?
I have a 2000 v6 with a cold air intake , pype true dual exhaust, 24lb injectors,65mm throttle body a ported upper intake and 93 pump gas. Will this chip bring these mods together for the most power possible ? Also are the programs already on the chip to fit these mods or do I need to send it back to have a new tune put in before I can plug it in?
Yes, Bama can indeed tune for this application. These are custom tunes so you need to have Bama write the specific tune for the exact application you have. If you ever upgraded the vehicle and needed to upgrade the tunes, you would be sending this device back upon lending them that new information.
How fast will it make my car run an all a round will it make it run better with the chip???
Your car would perform better after installing the Bama 4 Bank Eliminator Chip. However, exact performance gains will depend on the modifications you have done to your car.
The Chip with a Bama Performance Tune will be able to re-calibrate and alter the shift points of the vehicle. This will also correct the speedometer reading if you have not already correct this.
This Bama 4-Bank Eliminator Chip and the Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner, item 101200G996, will have the same tunes - only the devices will be different. The nice thing able the tuner is that you do not have to plug it in directly to the ECM. The tuner plugs in via the OBD2 port and makes getting a new tune file more convenient - the down turn is that it is more expensive than the chip. https://www.americanmuscle.com/x4-custom-tuner-9904v6.html
Bama can indeed eliminate the PATS system for your 99-04 V6.
The chip indeed would be able to hold a tune to recalibrate your speedometer. Just contact Bama or American Muscle customer Service and they will be able to lend you directions on what you need to do to upgrade your tunes.
With the Bama 4-Bank Eliminator Chip w/ 3 Custom Tunes, Bama Performance will program the modifications that are currently on your vehicle. If you add or remove modifications, the chip would need to be reprogrammed to operate currently.
The Bama 4-Bank Eliminator Chip w/ 3 Custom Tunes can yield up to 20hp & 20ft-lbs of torque on a stock application, and even more with aftermarket performance parts.
The Bama 4-Bank Eliminator Chip w/ 3 Custom Tunes (99-04 V6) does have 7 notches on the dial. The first 3 should be your customer tunes, the rest will just have the stock tune as the placeholder.
I have 145,000 on my 2004 GT mustang and I use the BAMA 93 Octane Race tune on my car, which I drive daily in all weather. As long as your car is in good mechanical condition then I would say go for it. Our BAMA custom tunes are developed with these cars on our In-house dyno to ensure a safe and effective tune.
This chip will carry BAMA tune for your setup before it is shipped out to you. Once you get the chip, all you will need to do is install it and you'll be all set.
You should receive the link to the BAMA questionnaire in about 15 minutes after the order has been placed. If it doesn't come out for you automatically, you can contact either AM or BAMA and we can send the link for you directly.
Fits both 99-03 3.8L V6 and the 2004 3.9L V6
