    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.

The cord is detachable and there is no battery or power supply needed. It uses the power from your vehicle's diagnostic port or computers USB connection.

    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.

            Well worth the investment!

            Easy to use! My car is an automatic. The main reason I purchased was because my torque converter goes into lockup way too early. This fixed the issue! Nice shift, normal lockup speed and also a good seat of the pants feel HP gain. Pulls good to 6K RPM now. Prior to flash car leveled off at about 5K. Very happy! Thank you!

            So far so good

            Just had it installed Thursday. Breaking it in so the computer matches up with my downloads I presented AM to download. One of the biggest things I noticed is that my Trans, Rear and Idol seems to be in-sync when I take my foot of of the accelerator the car starts to slow down without me downshifting or braking. Also when I come to complete stop the RPM comes down to my idling that's set I don't need my car set with the advance timing without it staling. I'll wait about a month for my Dyno Tune , that's why it's 4 stars

            The Bama x4/sf4 definitely woke my 97 GT. love how it totally dials in the air/fuel ratio perfectly to make my 4.6 scream, turn heads and put a big smile on my face. I prefer the race tune cuz its suits my driving style/ heavy foot. WORTH THE MONEY! THANKS AM!

            No Go Bama Tuner

            Well I guess IF the tuner reads your vehicle it may be a good product! I purchased a Bama Rev-x Feb of 2018 and it would not read the vehicle, so I called SCT tuning they advised me to disconnect the radiator fan, fuel pump, stereo, factory amps and connect a battery charger to the car. It gives an error code 110B8. SCT said I would need to have the car reflashed to factory tune. I got so mad I sent it back to American Muscle. Had Ford reflashed the computer. So I decided to try the Bama X-4 Nov 2018 spoke to American Muscle they said it should work. Received the tuner and the same exact thing happened!! Spoke to SCT they said it IS an ongoing problem with older cars, they were new at one point. I asked when would this be taken care of and he said that they are working on it, I advised him the same thing happened Feb of this year and he could not give an answer. So the No Go Bama x4 tuner was sent back! Thanks American Muscle for the help!

            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.

            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.
