Octane tuning

I've had my bama tuner for quite awhile now and always do some reading before I just do one. I did some reading on the octane tune and decided it was a good fit. I changed the octane to 91 because that's what I always use and now I notice more power from 1st to 2nd, but it sputters and doesn't have to power after shifting to 3rd. I've lost almost all power after 2nd actually an it just sputters and slowly accelerates. Not sure if it's the tune or what's going on. Any advice?? Thoughts?? Anything is welcome.

Return to stock tune and see if it still does it.

hey dayves - Sorry to hear about the trouble you're running into with your 91 Octane tune. That's definitely on the odd side and I'd like to have the Bama Team get in touch with you about this to see when your last revision was and have a datalog set up for you to look into this even further and have them really dial you in! Please shoot me a PM with your order number and contact info and I'll make sure you're getting some help on this today!

Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you!

Alex

Hey Panther140 - We strive to have the best customer service possible and I personally hate to hear that my customers as well as Bama's aren't in good shape!

Hey dayves - I can't help but notice that this was your first post and you're likely not going to be able to send me a private message as you need to get your post count up to do so.

Can you please shoot the Bama Team a call directly at 1.888.226.9764 and let them know that you were working with Laz on MustangEvolution and they'll get you some help right now!

Alex
