Bamaperformance tuner

Has anyone had any trouble with their bama tuner? It's making my 04 gt idle at about 1500rpm until I come to a complete stop, even when the car isn't in gear.

Are you sure it's your tune that's causing an issue? Usually a high idle while coasting and sitting still is caused by the idle for control

I installed the 78mm bbk throttle body and tuner at the same time. I guess it could be the throttle body, how would I go about checking?

I would clean your IAC first. What generally causes the high idle issue is either your idle screw is not set properly or the IAC is allowing too much air in

May give that a try, like I said it's only idling high after I give it gas. Whenever I come to a complete stop it settles back down to about 900.

Yeah try cleaning it. I have both those mods and cleaned mine while installing and runs good.

I've read countless reviews on bbk tbs

And they seem to be a hit and miss when coming to idle issues.

Do the easiest things first.

Return to stock tune see if it fixes.
If not take off the IAC and clean it
If not take off ur air induction tube and look into the TB and see how open it is, it could be the set screw.

Did you make sure it opened freely?

I'll just double check everything with the throttle body first, make sure everything is put back the right way.

My BBK TB on my 95 was fine. Buddie's BBK TB on his 04 was garbage. They are VERY hit or miss. First thing you need to do is put the stock TB back on to rule that out. My money is on the TB being the culprit.

If it is the TB return it and get a Dragon or Accufab.

Don't forget to clean your mass airflow sensor too
