difference in hp between tunes?

so i'm about to put in a K&N CAI and i've got 3.73s in my MT 00 v6 (i'm thinking gears won't matter with increasing horsepower, it just helps with acceleration but correct me if i'm wrong). i'm currently running 87 octane and i'm about to get the SCT tuner also (i'm getting it the same time i'm getting the CAI from AM). For my first 3 starters, i'm planning on getting 87 street, 87 performance, and 91 race (i read on some forums that BAMA custom tuning doesn't provide 87 race and that's why i'm going with 91 race). my question is, what is the difference in horsepower i'll get between 87 and 91 octane custom tunes? would I at least get over 200 hp with the 91 race tune? or with the 87 street or performance tunes?

Hard to say.. Performance helps the most at higher rpms and race helps through all rpms. 87 will be a change but not massive, race tune is definitely the best. You should see over 200 horses. Of course not goin to the ground, but statistically speaking yes you should get 205+ horses.

Re: difference in hp between tunes?

i noticed that with the stock tune, for first and second gear, the car will start to pull hard from at least 2500 RPMs, but then third, fourth, and fifth, it's from 3K and up. i'm hoping that with the performance tune, i can pull earlier than that but i'm not quite sure so i'm wondering if someone who's got a performance tune running 87 octane can explain that to me. like what u stated and from what i've read from many other forums, racing tune helps for all rpms but i don't want to be losing traction after every single stop LOL

Learn your car and control it. I can be perfectly fine and nice peel out, I can also burn through second.

Re: difference in hp between tunes?

random question, does ur car have the unusually low gas pedal and unusually high clutch pedal? i did the gas pedal mod but i have no idea if i can actually adjust the clutch pedal position or not. someone has told me that for this specific model mustang, the clutch is non-adjustable as far as the pedal itself goes but the engagement point can be changed

You can pull up your clutch to bring in some slack sometimes. Other than that, yes our mustangs have weird offset pedals. I have yet to do the pedal mod tho.

Re: difference in hp between tunes?

nah i probably won't want to adjust the clutch. but although for the pedal mod, since i left it at WOT position, every time i lightly step on it, all the passengers in my car, their heads jolt forward. that's one of the major downfalls other than wasting more gas...
