1999-2001 SVT Cobra and Mach 1 Mustangs 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 spark timing, a Bama Custom Tune is proven to squeeze out the extra horsepower Ford left on the table.
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.
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.
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.
Designed as a daily driver program that focuses in on increasing mid-range power.
This tune will get you the largest increase in performance. Designed for the "Race only use", as the timing and throttle response are very aggressive.
This tune adds power at 3000 RPMs and higher, focusing more on the top end HP and all out performance driving.

I purchased the BAMA tuner in hopes to get my Mach 1 to perform better and I was very happy with the results. After installing the performance tune the car is a lot more responsive. Definitely recommend if you’re trying to wake your car upHelpful (0)

Needed a correct tune for the mods I had on my 01 Cobra. Definitely straightened everything out and running even better now. Proved a small gain in HP and a better feel when doing a pull. Beware there is no software for Mac operating systems. You'll need to have a version of windows to download the device updater software for the tuner to be able to load tunes from the computer to the tuner as that was something I wasn't aware of from the beginning and would've thought about going with the wireless tuner to save some headaches I had getting custom tunes loaded. Definitely worth buying, just make sure you get a custom tune as it's way better than the pre loaded "canned" tunesHelpful (0)

Easy to use, quality product
This is an investment but totally worth it. On my 01' Cobra with LT headers, the bypass harness on the O2 were so inconsistent and never fully worked. I kept getting engine lights all the time and even replaced them to no avail. Enter this tuner and problem SOLVED. Customer service is great, I love the lifetime tunes, and the output on the screen is fun to watch as well when driving. I recommend this for sure.Helpful (1)

I have used the X4 on my 2002 GT and my 2003 Mach 1 and they're great units. Tons of options, data logging capabilities, code reading, and more! Basically any Mustang tuner you head to will be able to use the SCT as well. Highly recommendHelpful (0)

Worst Purchase ever
Got this tuner about a year ago for my 2004 Mach 1 and has not worked since. Contacted Bama multiple time tried multiple tunes and no luck. They keep saying must be something wrong with my car with only 60k miles on it. Got constant pinging at WOT. Also Stalled out on me when coming to a Red light on multiple occasions. Put back to stock and its fine. If you have a Mach 1 I would not recommend purchasing this product........ Save your money.Helpful (0)

Gets the Job Done
Overall installation took about 5 minutes and my tune was done flashing within another 5. The flash tune from Bama itself didn't make much of a difference in performance, but that's expected from an off the shelf tune. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and look forward to adding more mods to the list and working with Bama for retunes.Helpful (4)

Bama tuners not knowlegable, waste of time.
What a wast of time dealing with Bama, I got my tune and installed the performance tune, notice slightly more power and sound but had a running rough feel that was in the cruising range but goes away after 3000rpm. Called Bama---their experts cant answer hardly any detailed and specific questions like what exactly are the parameter changes from stock to their performance tune.. About the only thing you will get is--oh it adds more timing and fuel. Their communication with emails and reaching someone by phone that can help are horrible. Sending a data log didnt help which I had been warned about by others but didnt listen. The only good thing was getting speedometer set for my gear change. Wast of time and money . Like others tried to tell me skip Bama and go to a professional tuner.Helpful (4)

Tuner is great. BAMA tunes stuck.
Tuner works great as advertised but the BAMA tunes are useless unless you want to damage your Mach motor. Every tune they sent me, including after I sent a datalog, pinged and experienced detonation. So out of frustration I purchase tunes elsewhere which ran PERFECTLY showing power increases. . Now I see they are offering VMP tunes. Hopefully they know how to tune a 4v because BAMA couldn't. Again , great tuner , just sucks that AM was using a tuning service that couldn't tune a Mach 1.Helpful (7)

So four stars because no instructions came with it. To be honest it was self explanatory, as soon as I plugged it in it told me what to do and tuned by car in a breeze. However, it says it can do other things as well and the instructions would be great to know how to do them without wiping the tune. I haven't had any problems but I haven't ventured anywhere else other than clearing DTC codes.Helpful (7)
Will this tuner turn off the rear o2 sensors when putting an x pipe on my mach 1 with no cats thanks
Hello! The Bama X4/SF4 Tuner will prevent your CEL from coming on when installing an offroad x pipe.
I have a 2004 Mach 1 w/auto. One of my main considerations for the tuner is to improve the sloppy/slow shifting of the stock automatic transmission. I have heard that the tuner modifies the ‘shift points’ but I am curious if it will improve the slow, stock shifting? Also, how does the tuner improve the shift points if my car already shifts at the redline?
The Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner w/ 3 Custom Tunes will absolutely improve your shifting by altering shift points and making them more firm.
What is the difference between the Bama tuner and the SCT tuner?
Bama tuners simply include Free Tunes for Life. The non-Bama branded X4/SF4 is the same device, both are made by SCT.
I purchased an 01 Cobra that has a tune on it but I don't know what it is. I need to get it back to Factory so I can get it to pass state Emissions. Can you install a factory tune to a unit along with performance Tunes so I can tune it again after Emissions tests?
The factory tune can be stored on the device along with custom tunes, however, Bama cannot make a factory tune.
I had gears put in, and my speedometer is way off. I’m reading online that a tuner can fix that. Anyone know for sure?
A tuner can be used to adjust your speedometer.
The Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner will have the preloaded SCT strategy tunes.
The Bama X4 Tuner can only tune one vehicle at one time, as the tuner gets locked to the vehicles computer when the car is tuned. You will need individual devices for each Mustang.
The tunes would have been specific for your 4.6l 2valve engine, and would not work properly with a 4.6 4 valve engine, bama does not typically provide tunes for aftermarket scenarios such as that.
BAMA is able to adjust O2 Sensor response times due to changes with O2 Sensor locations from long tube headers.
• 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 only Use" as the timing, fuel, and throttle response settings are very aggressive. in fact, the adjustments are 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. Finally, with the automatics, we implement entirely new shift points and firmness settings to further enhance the all-out performance of the vehicle.
Bama Performance can for many applications however, there are a few exceptions such as non-factory forced induction set-ups and some very in depth builds. If you are planning on building your Mach 1 and tuning it, we would highly recommend giving us a call and speaking to Bama regarding your specific application for details.
The Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner w/ 3 Custom Tunes would not enable you to run any octane less than 91 octane, as this is considered the minimum acceptable for the Cobra and Mach1's from Ford.
