Well if it is a 95 it is a obd1 car. So the tuner you have to get is a chip, or a dyno tune, but the dyno tune would not be worth it with those mods, you can not use any hand held tuners like the one they sell on am

Don't think it's the obd2 that's why I was having a harder time finding something

I've heard that all the 94 and up 3.8's were OBD2. It's the 94-95 5.0's that are obd1.
Atleast I've read on forums that some 94's have OBD2.

Yes just the gts 94/95 were obd1, all V6's are obd2 on the SN chassis cars.

OP, I can set you up with a great tune from Ortiz Performance, he tuned my built car and does an outstanding job. Send me a PM if you're interested.

Go to American muscle and get a bama tuner chip for 269.99. It's an easy install and completely worth it even with the little mods you have. It will make a difference for sure.

bama may have its ups and downs from time to time, but they always fix what's wrong in the end. i'll stick to a high end name brand tuner if i ever decide to tune my current car.

Well sorry to hear about the rumors you've heard. Bamas tune has been great for me but prob doing a thunderbird sc engine swap in the near future so I would need another tune.

AM has free tunes for life. May not be the best quality, it's still better than the stock tune.
My stock tune really sucks right now. The 4.2 doesn't run too well with a 3.8 tune.
