    Bama Custom Tuning at AmericanMuscle. Power. Performance. Personalized. Proven
    • Power

      96-98 GTs have dyno proven gains of 21 RWHP and 34 ft-lb's of Torque or more on Bama Custom Tunes. By optimizing the air/fuel ratio and tweaking variable cam timing, a Bama Custom Tune is proven to squeeze out the extra horsepower Ford left on the table.

    • Performance

      Drastically enhanced throttle response and a much more aggressive throttle map will dramatically improve your Mustang's acceleration, shaving tenths off your quarter mile time while throwing you into the back of your seat every time you smash the gas. Automatic transmissions will see an even greater gain in acceleration and drivability, as the tune adjusts shift points and firmness.

    • Personalized

      For each and every Bama Tune, we ask you 19 questions about your specific Mustang, including your unique set up and intended use, in an easy to use web form. This information allows us to write an entirely custom tune just for your specific vehicle to ensure we deliver the most power and performance possible.

    • Proven

      Our Bama Custom Tunes are developed in-house on our Dynojet 224xLC chassis Dyno. Hours of research and development through street, track and dyno testing/datalogging left us with fully refined custom tunes. The Bama Performance team has exclusive access to our inventory of parts.

    Built-in WiFi. The SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner is now WiFi-capable meaning you will no longer have to plug it into your PC/Windows computer to receive the latest SCT firmware updates.

    Diagnostics. The SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner can also be used as a diagnostic code reader. Save yourself hundreds of dollars each year by reading and clearing your own trouble codes rather than paying a dealer to do the same. Its as easy as a few simple steps.

    On Screen Data Logging and Monitoring. With a full color LCD display, the SCT SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner makes it EASY to read the Built-In Data Logging or Real Time Monitored Vehicle Data, view popular sensor data such as EGT, Air/Fuel Ratio or any other 0-5 Volt source.

    Easy to load; easy to restore. When you load your custom tune on the vehicle, the tuner automatically stores your vehicle's factory settings. To return the vehicle to its factory settings, just plug the tuner back in, select the option to restore the factory settings, and you're done.

    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. Just send us a list of the part or parts you've added and we'll email the new tune files to 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. Automatic vehicles are further enhanced by making adjustments to the transmission's shift points and firmness.

    • 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. The automatic transmission settings are the same as in 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. On automatics, we implement entirely new shift points and firmness settings to further enhance the all-out performance of the vehicle.

    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.

    **NOTE: Programming custom tunes may take 2-3 business days plus applicable shipping time. We recommend ordering other products separately to avoid delay. Some heavily modified cars are not tunable with a mail order tune. Click for details.

    Will this work with a 95 GT? I have the same port under the dash in my 95 that my 2000 has to hook up to. Or do i have to go with the Bank 4?

    • Unfortunately you cannot use the tuner with the 1995 models. The 1995 and older vehicles are OBD1 cars so they will not have the hookup for the older 5.0 cars.

      Overall satisfied

      I bought my tuner with the lifetime tunes membership after I bought an SN95 off of an elderly gentleman, I had no idea what had been done to the car as far as performance is concerned and I gotta say, Bama tunes is the way to go. The only thing that I don't like about this tuner is the fact that it's not cloud compatible.

      Does the trick

      I noticed a bit more pull through all RPM's. Its not going to feel like a 200 shot of NOS, so don't expect that. The code reader function works great as well, found 4 codes that I need to address. This tuner is also much faster than the older then the x3.

      Mustang GT 1997

      I had a few mods on my 1997 Mustang GT and this flash tuner seemed to just tighten up the car and what was done to it performance wise. My throttle response was better and the power in the 3rd and 4th gear of the new 4.10 gear I put in was over the top.

      A big hassle!

      Nothing but a headache. I answered all the questions with the Bama tune guy , received tuner with a print out of changes made two weeks ago. Had a professional mechanic install it. Now the speed odometer reads 10 mph faster than car is actually going, also could not find street, performance or race, preferred tunes. Made two phone calls to AM no progress so far, sorry I got it ! Don,t waste your money!

      Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase of the Bama X4 Tuner. Simple and easy to use. Currently, I am running the 91 Performance Tune and I can feel a difference. Not in the sense of a huge power gain, but the car feels a lot smoother and I get better fuel mileage to boot.

      1996 Mustang GT Convertible with Bama X4/SF4

      I ordered the X4 primarily to correct the shift points of my 4r70w with a 4.10 rear end. The transmission would shift erratically and either slip or slam into overdrive. When I flashed the 93 Oct Race Tune to the car, everything was perfect except that the fan ran all the time due to me specifying an incorrect 180* thermostat. I attempted to reflash back to the stock tune until I replaced the thermostat. Something went wrong. The PCM was completely erased and I had to take it to Ford to have the stock program and VIN flashed back onto the PCM for $60.00. After that, I changed the thermostat and flashed the 93 Oct Race Tune back to the PCM. I couldn't be happier with the results. The transmission shifts like a manual and the difference in throttle response, idle, acceleration, hp and torque are like night and day. If you have mild bolt ons-cai, off road x-pipe, 4.10 gears, staggered tires, etc-buy this immediately. When flashing, make sure all the accessories are off, door is closed (dome lights/chime), use key fob to unlock anti-theft, and do not do anything that would cause voltage fluctuations.
