I'm using 93 and have race tune set. Others said you can't use it for everyday driving but guys from BAMA said a lot of people do and it's not gonna hurt car. But I was curious to what mod I should do next. Have slp loud month exhaust but that's it

I have a SCT 4 Bank chip and the street tune and performance tunes support 87-93, and the race tune and nitrous tunes are for 91-93 only. The issue with the race tune for daily driving is the aggressive nature of the tune. Especially in automatics they say can just lunge forward at stop signs and lights and mine has a few times but I can switch tunes in the fly. The add also said 'spins tires easily' which I assume is as much an add as disclaimer if you get a ticket lol

U can use u race tune if u use the octane it set up for, I can not use 93 in my race setup because it gone to be to much heat and u can blow the engine, I don't use my race tune all time because the race gas are $12 a gallon, but I love use race gas it is clean and car run really better

"Lethal", I did not see you write anything about a CAI (cold air inatake) change, if you have not done that, then that is a good next step (I used the Steeda Carbon Fiber High Flow Elbo Intake). And on my Tune, I had a Custom Tune done, and I only use 93 Octane in mine.

I set it at performance tune now and still using 93. And you are def right I I do love it like crazy ha. The race tune was just a little to aggressive for me so I think I'm where I should be now

Mine is also a standard so I could really tell a difference. Made shifting slow like normal driving hard with it on race tune

Re: Cold air intake

I have the JLT CAI and SCT tuner with Bama tunes for life from American Muscle. I got it for $480. I always run the race tune. It's amazing how different the car feels!
I love how it chirps the tires shifting gears!

Would it be good idea to get some kind of sleeve to go over top of filter to protect from rain?

Don't worry about the rain. It's only if you basically submerge it in water! But don't go through big puddles either.

You can buy what's called a pre filter but it's just to help keep the filter clean. It will help keep debris and such out of the grooves but will not protect against water. As stated there is no need to worry about water getting to or in it unless you take it swamping

Im just catching up on this thread... I have JLT CAI and Bama tunes/SCT... I run the 93 race tune on my daily driver- love it. I don't think I could go back to the street tune.
