Bama custom tunes

I had a 2002 automatic V6 that used the sct xf3 tuner it was tuned by bama tunes. I recently sold my v6 to my sister and bought a 2004 GT so I still have the tuner because I don't think my sister really needs it lol. Anyway, I was wandering if there was a way for bama to retune my tuner to work for my GT instead of my old v6 so I don't have to pay the 379$ again. I don't mind paying money to use the old one as long as its a better deal. Please let me know if anyone has done this.

Im not too sure but i think bamma will unmarry your tuner for $150

Your best option is to call american muscle and talk to mkie wilson or anyone else from bama and they will have the best answer to your question.

1-866-727-1266 <----- Number for american muscle.

If you did not return the V6 to the stock tune then give the tuner to your sister. If she ever has a PCM related problem and brings it to a Ford dealer they may refuse to work on it if they find it has a custom tune--or will at best charge $200 or so to flash a stock tune (overwriting the BAMA tune) before working on it.

You can definitely use this device on your 2004 GT. The tune has to be pulled off of the V6 that you sold to your sister so that the device becomes unmarried! After that process is complete, you can use it on your car.

You'll need to buy back into our Free tunes for life program which cost a one time fee of $150. I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future.

Well the only problem with that is I don't want to untune the v6 because then it will throw a couple different engine codes and I don't want my sister to freak out about it. It also has an off road exhaust and I noticed it kinda quiets it down and makes it not so raspy so I think it's best if the tune stays on the v6. Is there any way to just leave the street tune on the v6 then pay the 150$ fee to use the tuner on my GT?

You can only tune one car at a time with the SCT tuner, you will have to "unmarry" the tuner from the V6 or buy another tuner...

Get MIL eliminators for the exhaust on the V6 then unmarry the tuner from the car and get the tunes for the GT

Either keep the tune for the v6 and get another or put the v6 back to stock

These devices are VIN locked, so they can only be used on one car at a time. Unfortunately if you're going to leave the tune on your Sister's V6, the device will be no use to you.

I hope this explains things a little better. Please let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future!
