Dyno'd

So I got my car dyno'd today and I wanted to find out if these numbers seem right. I feel like I don't have as much power as I should from "seat of the pants" feel. I have an off-road h pipe and pype bombs but no tune. It seems like I have no low end and top end felt kindof weak too.

That seems about right. The 3v isn't the greatest for low end, thats where 2 big valves (ie motors like LSx or Hemis.... even the 4.6 2v) have their power. The modular 4 valves like the 4.6 4v and 5.0 Coyote get power up top, so the 3v is kind of an interesting set up. It doesn't really get power up top or down low lol, its mostly all just mid-range.

It feels like I lost power though, my low end feels real sluggish and it used to not be. Haha I was thinking it could be a leak or something from my exhaust.

Those #'s are spot on. You need a tune in the first place. Taking the cats off without a tune will cause you to run rich. Which in turn is a big part of it not feeling like you want. Running rich cost you power since its dumping fuel.

The tune will make a big difference. It will be what you are expecting.

Will it be good even without an intake? Or should I wait to get both together?

I bought mine as a package. I bought airaid cai and diablo intune tuner. The difference was unbelievable. It didnt feel like I was driving the same car. The tuner just wakes her up and the cai lets her breath so much better. Plus its a good price for what you get

The dyno is accurate. Once you get a tune, you will see a larger jump in power as well.

That "loss" feel can also happen if you lose too much backpressure. Going catless can do that, especially if you have only modded parts of the exhaust and nothing else. A good exhaust can be a fine tuning art, you don't want too much or too little backpressure.

No such thing as "back pressure", it's the exhaust velocity that when changed can hurt the car. But there being less back pressure does not affect anything at all.

Correct. You don't want back pressure period. It is useful on cars that aren't going to be raced, say a 4 cylinder that can use a small spike in torque versus high end power. Otherwise, you don't want back pressure.

I agree with everyone that mentioned you really should have a tune with a cat delete. You'll feel a significant gain in torque and "seat of the pants" with a custom tune on your 3v. I'd also highly suggest picking up a CAI in combination with a custom tuner. The factory intakes are fairly restrictive on these cars.

If you purchase a used tuner, you can enroll yourself into our Free Tunes for Life program for $150. Which will provide you 3 custom Bama tunes right off the bat. Then you'll be able to request additional tunes at no extra cost moving forward. However, if you purchase any new hand held tuner from AM directly, you'll automatically be enrolled into the Bama Free Tunes for Life program. Plus, if you have any problems with the tuner, we always stand behind our products and will be happy to assist you anyway possible!

Give me a shout if you ever have anymore questions or concerns!

Shane

I got mine used as well with a cai for 100 bucks unlocked. Just verify that its unlocked or unmarried before you give the person the money. You don't want to have to pay to unlock it haha.

Had a feeling it was around $150. Thank you! If anything I'll pick up a new tuner and a used CAI. I've seen a few pretty cheap in my area.

Does it matter what year the tuner is for? So like if an ad on craigslist says it's for 2011+ up and unmarried it should still work fine for 05-09? I've heard it works for every year and I've heard it doesn't.

The specific tunes won't work. But the actual tuner device will work. It'll work on any OBDII Mustang.

I didn't mean the specific tunes. I meant like can I use the device for my car? Can't bama change it to work on my engine if it's from a different car.

Yes the tuner should work fine with your Mustang still. Just the tunes loaded onto it won't work. Regardless, the Bama Team will be able to help you out once you're enrolled into the program!

I'd make sure you're finding a tuner for fairly cheap too. Since you're automatically enrolled into our Free Tunes for Life program with any new tuner, it's hard to justify buying a used one and buying into the program. Sometimes there's great deals out there though. Whatever works best for you!

Bama works with both Diablosport and SCT! You can be enrolled into the Free Tunes for Life program with either tuner. Which I should have mentioned earlier, sorry about that!

Let me know if you have any other questions I can help with.

Thanks! One more question, how do I find out if a tuner is married? I'm meeting up with a guy tomorrow and he doesn't know if his tuner is locked or not. I'm really hoping it's not so I don't waste 1 hour drive each way haha.
