Depends on your route are u still styling? Or do u want more performance? A tuner possibly? Throttle body and plenum? So many to choose!

Yeah I'm thinking tuner! If I buy one do they ask for my information right when I buy one or do I have to wait for it then call them for tunes I just don't get how it works?

I ordered my tuner from American Muscle they took the information at the time of order. Numerous detailed questions so that the tunes could be made precise. They load the tuner based off of your responses and then ship it out.

When you add it to your cart then put your card info in do they ask for your car info after you buy it?

RUNNWLD.

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. We're also constantly developing our tunes! 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.

Let me know if you have any questions about our Bama SF3 tuners. I'd be happy to help anyway I can!

Shane

It's a 1 time a year kind of thing. I have never heard of anyone getting called in to do it again. I think however if you get pulled over if the cop is real enthusiastic to give you tickets then if he looked under your car and you had no cats on it he could probably cite you for it. But I have never heard of that happening either.

Yeah I know but does the spoiler come with the third brake light on the Saleen spoiler? Does it cover the factory holes? If not how do you fix that so I don't have some ugly holes sitting there!!!?

Yes it came with the 3rd break light and goes right over the factory holes no drilling required

I like the stock spoiler the best, but if you were going to change it the I think a Cobra would look better, then the Saleen. But everyone likes different things. Just do what you like the most.

I'm sure they are as good as the stock ones. Can you get them pre painted from wherever your ordering them from?
