    • 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.

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.

    Full Color Display. The SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner features a full color 2-3/4" diagonal LCD screen with user adjustable portrait or landscape modes. The SF4/X4 also has a convenient power saving auto dim feature.

    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.

        5 Top Rated Questions

        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.

        Can this tuner disable the p1516 engine light associated with deleting the IMRC plates in addition to tuning for the airflow properly?

        • Yes the Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner w/ 3 Custom Tunes, would be able to tune for an IMRC delete in addition to getting rid of the light associated with that code.

        What is the difference between a bama x4 tuner and a sct x4 tuner or are they the something only the BAMA gives you upgrades for life? Would a dyne/tune shop who works w/ SCT be able to put their tune on BAMA tuner?

        • The only difference is Bama Performance would write custom tunes for your car on the SCT device. A dyno shop would be able to write tunes for either device.

            Good product

            The tune was easy to install and setup, and made a noticeable difference in the throttle response and seat of the feel. I live in a northern climate, so the car is only driven in 3 seasons and not everyday. Very pleased, this product did what was advertised and expected, can't ask for more than that.

            Can't delete EGR/O2s/SAI any more.

            My car doesn't really NEED a tune yet for the mods right now. Right now I need to eliminate my broken/failed IMRCs, EGR, secondary air injection, and eliminate the DS O2s running no cats. The QandA states this can be done but apparently that's outdated info and they can no longer do that. So until I mod the car some more that requires a good tune (which I would get done on a dyno anyway), this is nothing more than a $400 IMRC delete box. Had I known they couldn't do that any more I would have opted for something different. So if you want to eliminate any emissions components, this will NOT do that without visiting an actual tuner. I really hate leaving negative reviews, but I feel like I was tricked into buying something that will not do what this site claims it can do.

            NIght and Day

            The software was easy to update on the tuner and it was easy to use on the car. Before I put the tune on (97 Cobra w/ BBK H-Pipe, Long Tubes, IMRC deletes) it was pretty sluggish and wasn't as fast as I thought it should. After I put the 93 octane race tune on she became scary. Completely different car because of the tune and I have a little placard that I stuck on the radiator support with my name on it which makes it a little more personal. Love the active datalog and customizable gauges that let me know what's going on. The only thing I wish they included was an explanation on what the advanced gauges were reading and what range they should be in but other than that it's still a must do if you have any mods done.

            Disappointed so far..

            The initial round of pre-loaded tunes did more to hinder the performance versus enhance. I loaded and tested every tune, each of which made my dash tachometer go haywire but most 3k RPM, on every tune, my pistons sounded like they were about to fly through the hood. It felt very sluggish, no bottom power or mid range. I ended up returning the stock load and have since ordered another tune since I am putting long tubes and x pipe on the car soon. I will give the tunes a second chance once these are installed, but so far, not impressed and not a good purchase.

            Upgrades are worthless without a tuner. Excellent.

            You can install all of the bolt-ons in the world and your stock ecm will never adapt enough or change to give you any power gains. have the tuner on staff at bama write you a specific tune based on your exact upgrades and fuel used. I feel a difference in driveability and power.

            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!
