I've had a few different tuners and my favorite by far is BAMA. It's an SCT tuner sold at Americanmuscle.com and tuned by the BAMA department there. The difference is night and day. I absolutely recommend it!

Sct and bama are the way to go. I've had them about a year and every time I add something to my car the send me a new tune for free. Definitely worth the money.

If you're not under a warranty and the opportunity to tune comes up, grab it by the balls like a horny teenage girl.

If you have an extra hundred bucks, get it dyno tuned. Once you have the mods of choice, get it tuned at a Mustang shop and it will yield best results. Nothing wrong with BAMA tunes either.

If they have nothing more than bolt on mods, don't bother with a dyno tune. Not worth the extra cash for little too no power gains. Go with either Bama, Steeda or MPT and heck yeah, Tune bro, tune. I have all three tune (Steeda, Bama, MPT) and they all are great. The MPT is a beast

+1 for Steeda, lol.

We have a tunes for life program that we offer ... you add parts ... we will update your tune for free regardless of the manufacturer.

We have been tuning for quite some time and we have had 0 warranty issues to date when our tunes have been installed. The same tunes we write for our serialized vehicles which are sold at dealerships are the same great tunes you will get. They are safe, reliable & powerful.

Let me know if I can help assist you with a tune order?

Best Regards,

TJ

They just ask you for a list of your mods and they adjust the tune to what you have. I would suggest data logging as well. Helped my s197 run better. I saw a slight increase in gas mileage too, believe it or not.

in my experience , box tunes are good , but you can't beat a dyno tune
hands down , my friends a great tuner and always gets a lot more power out of any car over a box tune ( JLP Perfromance )
my newest car will be there shortly to be maximized !!

A dyno tune will give you the ease of mind that your car is running as efficient as possible, eliminating any guess work. The parameters are set off of your cars real world numbers. Alot of factors go into the program set up. Age and function of those little things can add up and any deficiencies your system may be experiencing can be found. Sensors, filters, & mechanical parts can react differently depending on age and condition.
I usually want new fluids all around including differential and transmission, new fuel filter, clean air filter, fresh plugs and wires, full tank of 93octane, before putting on dyno.
Either way, it is a "must have" once you've had it done. Good Luck!

Haha, I'm kidding! I'm sorry I missed this thread. I'm not sure how it skipped under the radar. However, I'm here now and will definitely be getting the OP taken care of!

Hey Ed,

I definitely agree with everyone in this thread.. Tune your S197 GT! You won't regret it. Tune, Intake and Gears are the three most beneficial mods you can do it in my opinion. I always recommend a Bama custom Tuner and Airaid/JLT CAI package to anyone who is getting started in the modification game!

For every Bama Tune we ask you 19 questions about your specific Mustang, including your unique mods and style of driving. This info helps us write custom tunes from the ground-up for your Mustang's mods that will give you the most horsepower that we can safely deliver. Between our 14 different Project Mustangs and tons of street/track and dyno testing (on our in-house Dynojet 224xLC), we're looking for any minor tweaks to be made that can benefit you guys. We're also part of Fords Technology Transfer Program & Work very closely with Ford to insure that all of our tunes are perfect!

Last but not least we do offer free tunes for life. Anytime you add a new modification, need a revision or just want a new tune don't hesitate to give the Bama team a call and they'll gladly help you out! This makes the modding process very easy moving forward.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future. You can reach the Bama team at the contact information below in my signature.

Also, thanks to everyone who recommended Bama in this thread. It's great to see that you guys are all enjoying your Bama Tunes. We appreciate the feedback!

-Dan
