Bama Tune for My 2001 GT

Moved jobs and have to drive farther for work with my 2001 GT. I have all bolt ons. Running 93race tune. Is it safe to drive everyday or should I tune it back down to 87?

I'm just saying with it being winter and having to drive 30 miles there and 30 back would it better to knock it back to save MPGs. I mean I am a conservative driver when commuting.

With the 93 tune and everything. I still am getting 15ish mpg. I've clocked it a couple times and its between 14-16

As soon as your use to the extra snappy throttle, you'll be fine.

Welcome to Mustang Evolution! You'll meet a lot of great people and find a ton of awesome reads on this forum, get out there and enjoy it.

It's perfectly save to run your 93R tune all the time. The Throttle Response is very aggressive so please be careful, but it's not going to hurt the Motor or anything to drive it daily!

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions! 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!

I drive mine every single day and I'm never going back to 87 or 89. 93 octane race tune FTW!

When I received my Bama Tuner the detail sheet included references all three tunes as being 93 octane. Am I missing something?

You must of clicked on 93 for all of your tunes. On the question list for the tune it's lists the octanes for each tune. For street tune you have 3 options for it 87,89,93. Performance tune has 3 options 87,89,93. Then race you can only get in 89 or 93. You must of hit 93 octane for all your tunes. But yes bama does offer tunes in different octanes. If you didn't get what you want, just call bama up and have them send you over the tunes you want for the right octane.

Ohh I'm fine with it. The only gas available to us on base is 93 so it works. Car sounds great and there is a significant more throttle response even in the street tune.

My car runs better and I get better gas mileage running 93race tune. Never thought that would happen but I found out after forgetting to reflash from a drag night and driving 325 miles home to sc.

Can't wait to try the Performance and Race Tune. Thinking it might be better to wait until the snow and ice are off the roads. Lol
