well hold on, here.
I was at the drag strip. personal experience.
foxbody 5.0(same engine 94-95GT's had) automatic. stock. not sure of the mileage, owner was a gear head. I'm assuming he maintained it very well as it looked almost new.
ran mid 15's. Same as my V6 automatic. cheap 4.2 swap, single port heads, CAI, straight pipe, 8.8 rear and it's still un-tuned.
I didn't race him, we just compared time slips.

now, I think you should get the tuner, I think the stance looks fine your stang.
A tuner would come in handy with any future mods.

Bama tunes make it easier to blow head-gaskets. Plus 3.8 liter engines are know for that as we'll

94-97 3.8s were. 98s fixed it. 99-04s are even more refined. Very reliable engines. How does a tune make it easier to blow a head gasket anyways lol? Maybe cause people would wanna driver harder?! Thats the only thing I can think of

Lol exactly! People wanna make their v6 faster. An the tune does make it quick which makes them wanna push it harder. I would just turbo it. I'm using my v6 just to drive. I'm getting a v8 after I get out of school

Dude ur confusing me.... Turboing it would definitely make you blow a gasket haha. Trust me a simple tune is actually better for the car. It becomes more efficient.

Not if you build your engine. If you want a v6 to go fast then turbo. You can make engine better by the way.

I'm 93 race tune and have been for 30k+ no problems whatsoever. If you don't have a tuner you probably shouldn't comment on the post. Some people go in and change specification with idle and other engine functions which can cause issues with their car after bama write the tune. Those are the ones who have problems. If you just load the tune that you're given you will have no problem.

But the guy who made a post doesn't even have a tuner? Therefor you comment makes no sense. He is wanting to know what he wants. An I would take lowering springs over a bama tuner. Look in all honesty getting a tuner for a v6 isn't smart. Just get a v8 then get a tuner, simple as that.

How is a Bama tune bad for your car.

Mine runs perfectly fine. If you don't have first hand experience tuning your car with a Bama tuner please do not spout off false nonsense discrediting companies and insulting others.

Bama tune will be great for your car OP. Lowering Springs are awesome too. Tune and gears will make the biggest difference in noticeable performance. Lowering springs give the car a real mean look.

I would go with the tune for now, then do the lowering springs once you do a lot of suspension work. Might as well get all the suspension work done at once!

You still have a v6 guy. An you still think bama tunes make a difference. Sure they do but are not worth it. Just saying.

I can understand starting off with a tuner but I guess suspension is something I go for.

Well just the lowering springs alone really are not going to make a noticeable change in your handling. It will give the car a rougher ride as well depending on the drop you get.
I would recommend throwing on UCA/LCAs, Strut tower brace, adj. panhard bar at the same time as the lowering springs. THEN you will see a huge difference.

The tune is what ties everything together. It gets so much more from all the supporting bolt-on mod's such as a CAI and O/R pipe. It makes a HUGE difference especially "butt dyno" feeling. If you have an automatic, it is a must have.

I just hate how there is a wheel gap on stock mustang suspension. It drives me crazy.

Can you stop the pissing contest..... it's not helping and you're going to get this thread closed.
Stop bashing someone for having a 3.7. That's the most immature thing you can do on here. I could care less what anyone on here drives, if you put effort and care into building your car then you're equal in my book. The 3.7 is an amazing car, and responds extremely well to bolt-on mods and a tune.

Hey guys cool it off, if you insist on bickering then take it to PMs. If you guys can't discuss things without insulting each other then I'll just lock the thread.
