Best tune?

Hello everyone.

Picked up a stang to learn how to drive stick better (never had a standard only auto big lifted trucks)

As well as something "cheaper" to drive, after mods are done anyhow

Pieces that came on the car are as follows

KnN filter on a stainless or chrome intake tube,
A tube strut tower brace
mufflers have been removed and cats left on it.
Bullit 17s from a 05/06 style


Future planned mods are the MGW race or standard shifter
seat frame extentions as im 6'3" and 260 lbs
sub frame connectors
lower control arms
FRPP aluminum drive shaft

Also hopefully a PI engine and a tubular K in a year


But Im a few days from ordering a tuner which will be a SCT 7015. But whats the best company to hit up for a tune?

Thanks

If you want to get the best tune, a dyno tune is the way to go. All of the mail order tunes will be better than stock but they will also all be guesses at the tune for your particular engine.
A dyno tune is more expensive but you get what you pay for...

Dyno tune by a GOOD shop.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

Should have mentioned. Closest Dyno is 5 hours from me. And I really wont be bothering to drive that far until I have a lot of mods

I was looking at Bama from AM. Was hearing a lot of good thing in the last week, but the lastfew days I found some bad reviews

But there is also UPR, Summit, Steeda, LMR, CJP, etc

Have about 5 days until Im placing my order for a few items from the US and my dad is gonna go pick them up.

I used to swear by bama.. Now not as much. If it's not dyno, MPT tunes are really becoming a big hit. Bama just got a new tuner.. But we know when you lose mainstream support, it's hard to get that back.


Yes I edit my posts a lot, auto correct likes to sabotage me!
