    • Power

      96-98 Cobras have dyno proven gains of 30 RWHP and 35 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.

    Does this tuner help calibrate the speedometer on the 1998 Cobra after adding different that stock rear gears and larger wheels/tiers?


    • The Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner w/ 3 Custom Tunes requires a questionnaire to be filled out prior to programming the custom tunes, where rear gear ratio and tire size is requested, so it can be re-calibrated. The tuner itself has the function, however, it is disabled by the custom tunes.

      Flash tuner came with the three generic caned tunes and both 91oct (street,performance) tunes the car fell on its face. Check engine lights no power and makin al kinds of noise. I cleared codes and reset computer and added the 93oct race tune and now the car comes to life. I know that I will have to bring this car to an actual tuner to dial it in 100 (thus needing this unit) but still on the fence about weather it was worth the almost $500 Canadian I paid....

      Overheating Issue Resolved!!!

      So I bought this specifically for the tune options. Previously, I was having an overheating issue and the fan would not turn on until the temp gauge got to "L" on "NORMAL", once I loaded a tune from Bama, the fan kicks on between "R" and "M" which means that the previous owner probably modified the config on the ECU or uploaded the wrong config. Also noticed a big change in "get up and go" on the car once I used the "Race Only" tune as well as the performance tune. Bama, you guys rock!

      The purpose purchasing my BAMA Tuner was to delete my IMRCs because of the gunking up. BAMA sent me a tune with my IMRCs deleted and the car runs great as if it came from Ford this way. Cannot comment on their tunes because that was not my interest. The Staff there are awesome people and i had a great time talking and learning from - yes commend!!!

      I'm not sure if it is because I used this on a cobra or not. It didn't give me as good as results as I expected after reading other reviews. The only thing I immediately noticed was that it revs smoother. I can't really feel any performance gains. I wish it would have been better.

      Must have if planning to upgrade with performance parts!

      I've been putting my cobra up do date since I bought it. As usual, many replacements have been done with performance parts. If you changed MAF, air intake, fuel pump and other related parts, then you should get this. Anyway, is the most friendly tuner in the market and the ones many dyno centers use. The product itself is just perfect. From the tunes, I felt improvement in acceleration. If you are thinking between the CHIP or Tuner my advice is to GET THE Tuner. Transferring tunes to car ECU is simple and only takes a few minutes. Also, if your mustang is not heavily modified you can get email tunes. In addition, with this you have the peace of mind that any local tuner can use this to make a custom tune on a dyno (if desired). On the other hand,with the chip not all local tuners have chip burners. Also, with the tuner there is less chance of a defective unit like with the chip. I just mention since I was undecided on what to get at first (just my opinion). For now I've been using the BAMA Tunes. I'm still gathering the parts for my cobra. Once I got them all (1 year or more) I will then go for a dyno tune. But for now I'm ok with the BAMA tunes. Since I changed the fuel pump my car was very rich at idle you could see it in the exhaust. The tunes solved this so I could drive my car around with no problems on the meanwhile until I finish my project. Besides from this product review I just want to advice everyone to verify your stang ECU and check if its re-manufactured. My Cobra had a remanufactured one. I always felt my car didn't run as I expected. Turned out the ECU was from a 1996 GT. That is why I had automatic transmission check engine codes when I scanned it for the first time a few months ago (since I never got a light within the 2 years I owned this cobra). I was able to clear this out since the tuner marries to the ecu once is connected and it tells you the VIN # of the original car that had that ecu. I then ran the VIN on the web and it came up to the previously mentioned(it differed from the VIN # in my cobra which I also ran and came up as a cobra). In a brief, the IMRC where not opening since that was not on the programming. Long time ago I did the test of looking at the runners and revving the engine and never saw the runners move. I though the system was faulty this whole time. With the BAMA Custom Tune (made with from the cobra base tune) now the IMRC are opening and I don't get the old check engine codes. I cannot completely tell on the"performance gain" of the tune since I had that problem and IMRC opening now is a huge difference. But why I can say is that this is a must have and the free tunes for life are a Great plus which help me resolved a big issue. A.M. Customer service is excellent.

I had the Bama team from American Muscle write me a new tune to go with my Kooks long tube headers and K&N air filter. All I can say is that it pulls so much harder now! I purchased the car with all these other parts on it but did not have a tune on it. America Muscle again came through!!
