Adjusting the Idle

Starting to get tired of the idle at stop lights, when in gear or under load it idles around 550-600 and in neutral and park it idles perfect at 750. I want it to be around 750 when in gear or under a load. From what I read the easiest way to adjust it is that TB screw crap but I don't want to mess with it so is there a way with my bama tuner I can adjust it. I heard you can with an SCT Tuner but haven't found the way to do it with my bama tuner.

Its idling correct but if want of bump it up don't mess with the tb screw you'll mess it up that's not an idle screw whoever is saying that is a dumb *** do it through the SCT tuner. You won't see a setting in the tuner to ADUST it you have do it while you upload a tune to the car right before you get ready to upload the tune the car you scroll though the settings of the tune there you set spark, idle, gear ratio, tire size shift point etcetera leave every thing alone and adjust the idle speed from there then upload the tune to your car.

Damn.. I was hoping there was a setting for it because I didn't want to use that custom tune stuff because I like the tune I have from bama with my mods, could I contact bama and ask them to make a tune for me that includes a higher idle?

It should be built in the tune you should be able to plug in your tuner and adjust it. I did mpt tunes I can go back and adjust it.

Since you guys are much more familiar with SCT than I, I have a quick question. Is the X4 a universal tuner,for example is the x4 capable of tuning/tweaking a 2012 GT then you sell the car unmarried it and tune a 2014 v6 or F150. I understand 1 vehicle at a time.

The sct tuner you have is for a Ford Mustang only 99-16 and yes once it's unmarried then you can tune another mustang
