If you get the Bama tunes from American muscle which I would recommend, then they will make you a custom tune for your car with all the mods you have included. It will pretty much tie them all together so your car perform the best it can with what it has. I have one and it was probably the best money I ever spent.

Exactly. It's a really good mod and one of those mods that the more parts you put on the more it helps you. Plus you have the 3.73 gears so unless you had your speedo corrected the tuner comes with n option that you can put in what gears you have and it will correct the speedo for you. Also if you have n o/r x pipe you can shut the rear 02s off so you don't throw an engine light for not having the cats without mil eliminators.

I honestly can't say for the stang I went with the sct itsx but I did have the diablo sport in my old srt4 n it really woke it up. Most of the handheld tuners from my understanding are pretty much the same they just have a little more options . Used is a decent idea if they are unmarried from the previous car but with American muscle you get free tunes for life so spending the extra couple of dollars is worth it if you plan on doing more performance parts in the future.

It's defenitely worth it. Plus, you get free tunes for life from Bama. So, as you add more mods, they can write you new tunes. Can't beat that!

$150 buys tunes for life. $150 to unmarry a tuner. So definitely make sure its unmarried.

I am looking into buying a tuner and the tunes are done by MPM More Power Mike and it says he is sct certified. Has anyone ever heard of that?

Got a Bama SCT tuner for my 04 GT and I highly recommend one. I too was sceptical on them and now am a true believer! I am now grabbing rubber in 1,2,and 3!

I got mine from mike at 5star tuning his main business is ford trucks and raptors but he is a mustang guy from way back and he has done many mustangs.....plus most of the time you can call and ask him questions directly or have one of his people that answer phones for him ask. Just another option to look into. He is an sct dealer also
