The package i was looking at is the 3.73 gears/BAMA tuner on americanmuscle.
So my questions are:
1) Will upgrading the gears have any negative impact on the car?
2) How safe is the BAMA tune?
3) Does the above kit come with everything I need to install and go?
I look forward to hearing what you guys have to say!
You'll definitely love these modifications. Intake, Tune and Gears are the first three modifications I recommend to anyone who is getting started in the modification game! You already have the intake so you're on the right track.
Gears are my personal favorite mod. If you have the factory 2.73's and jump up to 3.73's your car is going to be a completely different animal! You'll notice huge increases in acceleration and you'll be able to get off the line like a bat out of hell. Your speedometer will be off when installing the gears but we can adjust for your new ratio within the tune! That being said, let me tell you a little bit about how Bama writes their tunes.
For every Bama Tune we ask you 19 questions about your specific Mustang, including your unique mods and style of driving. This info helps us write custom tunes from the ground-up for your Mustang's mods that will give you the most horsepower that we can safely deliver. We're also constantly developing our tunes! Between our 14 different Project Mustangs and tons of street/track and dyno testing (on our in-house Dynojet 224xLC), we're looking for any minor tweaks to be made that can benefit you guys. We're also part of Fords Technology Transfer Program & Work very closely with Ford to insure that all of our tunes are perfect!
I hope this helps. Feel free to reach out to the Bama team with any questions you may have or if you need some assistance. You can reach them at the contact information in my signature!
