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.

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.

Is there a way to turn the cooling fan on at lower temps? With a 160 thermostat installed I'd like the fan to turn on a little sooner than stock configuration or is that already in the programming?


I built a factory five Mk4 roadster/cobra using a 1996 mustang GT 4.6L 2 valve engine, manual transmission. I am using factory five headers and sidepipes. I the car does not have cats, no O2 sensors, no EGR. I am using a cold air intake with stock throttle body and stock MAS. can you write a custom tune on the Bama X4 that will work with my car so it is a good street driver; I will not be racing the car. thanks


  • Custom tunes would not be available from BAMA with the Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner for your setup, as BAMA does not provide tuning services for engine swapped vehicles.

So I have the tuner now but I am doing a motor gt motor swap with the ecu and everything I currently have a 3.8l v6 in it and was wondering if there was anyway to still be able to make the tuner work or do I have to buy a new one?


  • You would still be able to use the Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner w/ 3 Custom Tunes when you do this motor swap yes. However, since the ECU will be different you will need to buy back into the free tunes for life program with Bama.

Will I have a 2 step with this tune


  • This Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner can support 2-step tunes. The 2-step file is PCM specific and will only work on specific PCM's. If you have your PCM code, please feel free to contact Bama Performance at 1-888-226-9764 to ensure they can support your PCM.

I noticed that the custom tunes are set to 93 octane. the 93 octane gas in my area is very unstable but the 91 is good. Is selecting the octane for the tune an option in the profile questions? Thanks.


  • When filling out the custom tune form, you will be prompted to select the octane for each tune. Street and Performance tunes can be set from 97-93 Octane. Race tunes can be set for 91-93 Octane.

    Worth in the long run

    I applied the 93 race tune and felt the difference in 2nd and 3rd and raced a couple of buddies I was usually mirror to mirror with and with the tune I got about half to a whole car on them so it does make a difference but I bought it for later on when I slap some cams in it I'll already have something to time the car decently with and also the free tunes from Bama/SCT!

    Wanted most from my mods

    Making sure to get the most out of my stang mods for my daily driver. Plus the ability to crank up the HP when feelin' froggy :) p.s Plug it up to your pc or obdII port & connect to your WiFi and 'Check for updates' in your device settings first. This way it charges while updating. Tried using straight out of box and upon using first time it backs up your stock tune and it made it 75% telling me my battery was too low to continue backup. Even though there isn't a battery power bar shown on tuner. (hence my p.s. above) Plugged in my pc while watching breaking bad then hooked it up to the car following on screen instructions & works perfect. S= Street Tune, P= Performance Tune, R= Race Tune.

    Great seat of the pants improvement

    I was Leary about trying the x4 because if how new it was but gambled on it. I'm very happy with it, seems to be much faster loading and easy to read. My car is an auto and the biggest improvement I felt was shift quality. Completly eliminated lockup at slow speeds which was annoying. And I can feel the power difference. Very happy and would recommend to anybody.

    works good

    I got this tuner to mainly change my speedometer but still cant figure it out. I did gain some tourque and hp. Not as much as i was expecting but its nice to be able to change how it shifts, fuel and spark. They could have made the tuner a lil beefyer, feel like ide break it if i dropped it. Bama does work with you in a professional manner tho which is great.

    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.

    Easy to use product!

    I've purchased this tuner to tie up the basic bolt on mods that I've put on my 96 GT not expecting much gain from it. However, the car runs a lot smoother, rpm climbs quicker, and the engine runs much cooler than a stock tune. Haven't tried the 93 octane race tune, wonder how that would be, but running a 87 performance tune for daily driving and fuel cost at the moment and even that made a difference.

    97 Mustang GT

    Just what the Doctor ordered!!! this is exactly what my car needed. I thought that i would give it a try, instead of getting a dyno tune. Mainly because i didn't want to be stuck with just one option. I have a Manual transmission, so no shift point adjustments for me. But i have noticed that it helps on the entire powerband. In addition, the car seems to be able to manage the cooling better, and as you know these cars have an Achilles heal, the CCRM. if its too hot, no power! beyond that the power is real smooth and direct.
