Tuning Durability

After installing an SCT tune from bama performance, has anybody had problems with their car? Has your factory durability been compromised by any sensors being switched off from the tune?

Re: Tuning Durability

I've been running a bama custom 93oct performance tune for over 6 months now. Its been changed frequently for upgrades. The only sensors ive had to replace were the EGR sensor simply because the clips holding it in place broke, and the throttle position sensor which I figured was just worn out, so took the throttle body off, cleaned it, replaced the sensor and been running fine for weeks now

So it's worth getting more performance from it than say a Ford Racing tune which is supposed to tested more thoroughly and safer?

Re: Tuning Durability

I don't know anything about the ford racing tunes, but this is my first ford and first time reprogramming a cars computer. I am not worried about anything that the tune has reprogrammed tho, only about drivers error since I turned the rev limiter off, and traction control almost all the way off. I have a sct livewire tuner and tunes for life, which was around $650, but it's paying for itself. I was able to find the failing sensors with the dtc code reader on the tuner and fix them myself without having to go to a mechanic. Bama customer service is great and very helpful. It takes them only a day, two at most, to write a custom tune and get it by email. You can tune for 87-89-91-93 Oct gas for a street, performance, or race tune. Not to mention all the other goodies that's packed in my tuner

It can be touchy and the shift points are definitely race oriented but its easy to adjust to and it slaughters traffic

Re: Tuning Durability

I've gained hp and better mpg with my 93 performance tune. I can see it just by it taking way less pedal in stop and go traffic and barely any pedal at cruising and highway speeds. But my tune really kicks in at 3,000 rpm+

08Mustang,

This is a frequently asked question! Our Bama tuning specialist are excellent, our tunes are VERY save. The tune's do not compromise the durability of the mustang!

It is perfectly save to run around with any of our tunes installed. The race tune may be a little touchy, and all of your safety sensors are shut off so I wouldn't run that ALL the time.(It is designed to be ran at the track, it's save to run everyday around town, just may be jumpy!)

I hope this helps!

If you need further assistance or have any questions, our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 10AM-3PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764 and they'll get you squared away!

When you say safety sensors, what does that entail?
