It's the truth. Test them all and pick the one you like best. 93R is what I have always gone with because of the throttle response. Ran it with 4.10s on my 07 with full exhaust and loved it. I'm running the 93R with 3.73s in my 5.0 now and it's great. It's not as responsive as the 07 but that's all in the gearing.

Like BaSohol said, which ever one you like the best. Just get out there and have some fun with it and let the butt dyno decide!

Im also running the 93R but you need to tune back to 93P for about 100 mls to get an inspection sticker...

I would check with AM before running the R tune all the time... I been meaning to do that myself. I was told by a mechanic that it can burn out sensors or something. And the R tune runs very rich

Thank you guys for the advise. The only thing that concerns me is that I just installed 3.73 the mechanic who installed them said don't go past 50 mph until you 500 miles I did the opposite of just that and I stepped on the gas pedal and the car wasn't going anywhere seconds later it went back to normal don't know what it is ??

Blue Thunder GT,

It really depends on how you drive the car! All of these files are 100% safe to run every day year round. However the Race tune is very aggressive, So aggressive that we recommend you be very careful when using this file. Mainly because it can spin the tires very easily and cause the car to jump of the line!

Drive around on all 3 files for a few days and pick which ever tune best fits your driving habits! You also may want to give our Hybrid tune a chance, this is my personal favorite .

The Hybrid tune is the low end grunt of the street tune, with the top end power of the Race tune!

Let me know if you have any questions! Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764 and they'll get you squared away!

Blue Thunder,

Yes some people say to break in the gears just like breaking in a clutch or a new car etc.. Mainly because it is a rotating part and it's good to put a few miles on it before laying into it. However if you don't follow these rules it shouldn't cause any damage.

Just baby it for a few miles and you should be good to go!

MDoane44,

The Hybrid tune is a new file we're offering! It has the best characteristics of each file in one tune. Everyone loves the Street tune but it doesn't have the same top end pull of the race tune and everyone loves the top end of the race tune but it lacks the low end grunt! This tune doesn't have that problem, you get the low end torque of the street tune and the top end pull of the Race tune.

I hope this helps clear things up! If you want to give this tune a shot give the Bama team a call and they'll hook you up. Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764.

Depends are you running a supercharger? If you have plans on Fi I would go with the 3.73 because the 4.10 will run out of gear real quick..

Just curious,
How is the fuel economy on that?
Is it as good as the performance tune, or is it is gas-guzzling as the race tune?

There's quite a few people who run 4.10s with a blower but more with 3.73s because it seems to be the perfect gear for a blower. And yes they will make a big difference versus your stock gearing.

Alrefire,

The Gas mileage is pretty similar to the Performance tune. Mainly because the low end of the street tune, if you stay in that RPM range you'll see an improvement in gas mileage. But I understand it's a hard task to keep the RPMs low . So the Gas mileage will be at the mercy of your right foot!

I hope this helps.

alrefire,

The Shift points are going to be set up like the Race tune! This tune is basically the Race tune with the Street tune low end .

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions!

Blue Thunder,

I'm sorry to hear about the issue you are having. Our tunes are good 99% of the time. Occasionally there are errors because we hand write each tune. I'm confident my Bama team will fix it quickly! Majority of the time, its Small human error when filing your tune information form or by a Bama Member!

Shoot me a PM with your order # included & I'll have my head Tuning Specialist Mike Wilson contact you directly!

-Dan
