Re: tuner

Up underneath the dash. If your foot is on the gas pedal it should be just up and to the right a bit i belive, its easy to get to.

I don't have one so I can say for sure. That is the next thing I'm getting as soon as I get my new wheels on tho.. And I have heard nothing but good about them. Especially if you get it from AM and get free Bama tunes so I have heard.

sonicstanggt,

Hand held devices are really user friendly. Just plug your device into the OB2 port (located under the steering column & upload the tune! We send all of our updates out with a detailed play by play instruction guide.

For each and every Bama Tune, we ask you 19 questions about your specific Mustang, including your unique set up and intended use, in an easy to use web form. This information allows us to write an entirely custom tune just for your specific vehicle to ensure we deliver the most power and performance possible.

We're constantly developing out custom tunes with the latest and greatest! Between our 14 different AM Mustangs and tons of street/track testing, and constant testing on our DynoJet 224xlc, we're looking for any minor tweaks to be made that can benefit you guys. Our lead tuner Mike Wilson works hard to give you guys one of the best custom tunes on the market!

We're also part of Fords Technology Transfer Program & Work very closely with Ford to insure that all of our tunes are perfect!

I hope this helps, hit me up if you have any questions.

- Dan

I would assume its probably for liability reasons, like if you don't do everything by the books and cheap out on something's and your engine blows or something. It saves them a law suit. Not sure if that's the reason but it seems like a good one

Ok so if there is a slip up in one of their tunes for a non swap car that blows the engine then they aren't liable?

We recommend going to a shop to be dyno tuned for swapped cars. Mainly because if anything goes wrong, they are witnessing it first hand & can trouble shoot the car right then & there. Also that allows for less downtime of your vehicle.

I am sorry we could not be more help, I am going to link you to our discloser for future reference! I hope this clears things up a bit.

What we don't tune for.

- Dan
These are the
Examples:

Non-Mustang Cars.
Pre-1987 Mustangs. (Speed Density Mustangs).
Heads or Cams on 1996 to 2004 Mustangs. (We do offer tunes for 1996-1998 Mustang GT’s with PI heads stock injectors and MAF.)
Carbureted Mustangs.
Non-Stock type Fuel Injection
Non-Stock Forced Induction on 1987-2004 and 2011 and up. (Ford Racing Whipple, Roush , Edelbrock and Saleen are OK on 2005-2010.)
Nitrous Tunes OVER 100 Shot.
Non-Factory Style Crate Motors. (Direct replacement style OK.)
We do not offer tunes for motor swapped car unless they are the same year and PCM as factory, or PI swap on 1996-1998 Mustang GT’s with stock injectors and MAF.
Major Engine Work. (Compression Ratio Changes, Stroking.)
Non-Gasoline Race Fuels. (Alcohol, Nitro Methane, Rocket Fuel, Moonshine, etc.)
Centrifugal Superchargers on 1987-2012 Mustangs.
Non Ford Racing fuel injectors (if you have fuel injectors other than ford racing, please contact us to see if we can tune for your application.)
Upgrades that will result in poor drivability. (X-cam, fuel injectors too large etc.)


Its a shame though because I would have used bama cause I love AM since they hooked me up on a issue I had last year. But thats the answer I got hope it helps.
Most places have waivers, and disclosures. Some charge a little extra. Dyno tunes are not practical for most people. The closest to me is Pauls High Performance which is an hour or so away.
