whats your take on a programer

I have an 05 v6 mustang. Im wondering what's everyones thought on which programmers works best. What im looking to do is get rid of all the limiters. The rev and speed. But also the limiter were it cuts the throttle when cornering hard. And throttle response. Waiting 2seconds before it starts moving is hard to get the jump on anyone. Im also going to start adding bolt on parts. Like bigger throttle bodie, long headers and hopefully soon a procharger kit running 10psi. Is there any of them where I can plug and do it all myself or do I have to buy a system then have someone make me a blueprint of it? I know this questions probably asked alot. But I also know there's new things coming out. And or people could have changed there minds about the one they bought. Thanks for any the help that is given. Kirpy.

Re: whats your take on a programer

sct tuner is the way to go, but never settle for downloaded pre-program "email tunes", the only way you will get any use out of the tuner and the car is to have it on a dyno and run it to set the air/fuel. you need a live data run to tune a car... if you don't want a tuner, have your car wide-band tuned through a comp. and a tuner doesn't give you hp, it makes the motor run better via air/fuel/spark which will make the motor run better freeing up some hp's.

also, a turner does have it's twerks - setting fan temp/speed, shift points (auto), speed cal.. etc..

Re: whats your take on a programer

Go with the SCT Best money I spent . Justin from VMP did my tune.Had the tune tweeked on a Dyno, all limiter removed, corrected the RPM drop delay etc
BAMA tuner do a great job on canned tunes.just send them your data log and they'll tweek the tune. While a Dyno is the best way to go it can get expensive

Re: whats your take on a programer

its not the tuner as much as the TUNE as was said above. You cant just order a tuner and expect to get the best gains, a custom tune has to be written and tweeked to your specific car and as you add mods potentially updated.

Finally do NOT remove the rev limiter from your car, its there for a VERY important reason.

+1 Do not move the rev limiter. It's set from factory to prevent engine damage. If the engine revs too high it can stress itself badly and cause major damage and heat buildup.

Im trying to get rid of the rev limiter when you hit the brake and it didn't limits how much you can rev. It prevents burn outs and drifting it sideways around a corner.

You can move the rev limiter...Ford sets them conservatively...they can be moved up 500 or so rpm without worry

Re: whats your take on a programer

Does my 01 have a rev limiter? I have never gone past 6,000. The only thing I removed with my tuner was the speed governor.

As for the tuner........ prior to the Windstar intake and exhaust mods I gained 20% increase in city mpg, and 25% increase in highway mpg just by adding a SCT tuner and a CAI. Best money I have spent so far.

01's limiter should be at 6250 if I remember right~ more than enough (as your peak power is no where near there, its at 5500 even though it shows the line at 5250... for some reason they didnt update this but the rpms went up in 01 by 250 for peak hp/tq fyi)

No use the tuner to move it up.
