So you can't change basic parameters with a Bama SCT, like the regular SCT? Do they reprogram the whole handheld?
With a regular SCT you can load a tune, but then change things like intake as well as many others.

You can't make any actual adjustments to the tune, by yourself. Just give the Bama team a call and they'll gladly make the proper adjustments for you, in just a few minutes! 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!

We lock options that require you to make actual adjustments to the tune. You can still change the gear ratio and basic options, that don't affect how the car drives. However, we don't recommend making any adjustments to the tune!

I hope this helps!

Ok ordered new tune ... There was no option for a hybrid tune and I thought I heard there was a new tune that was a cross between a street tune and a race tune... Is this not true ?

You have to tell them in the comment section that you want the hybrid instead of 1 of the others

Received tunes and hybrid tunes... What does the hybrid do? And what is it good for? Should I run that daily... Right now I run the race tune daily (more power and for sum reason I get better mpg too)

Silversky545,

Any of the Bama tunes can be used on a daily basis. The Hybrid tune is similar to the Race tune as far as fuel efficiency, but has a little more low end power. Personally, I would use the Hybrid tune all the time!

Because the race tune use's LESS fuel to make more HP then the street tune That's the simple answer.

It really depends on your driving style. If you're constantly driving aggressive and entering "fuel enrichment" mode, then the Race tune uses less slightly fuel to make more power, as state above. However, if you hardly drive aggressively or only do so for quick jolts of power, than the Street/Performance tune will get better MPG.

I should mention that even though the Race tune uses less fuel, we're only talking about a small difference. Which is why it's still safe to use the Race tune as a daily driver.
