Bama Sct/X3 flash tuner tips!!

hey guys, I just got my bama flash tuner and I was wondering was the best possible things to do with it performance wise, I have it on "performance mode" and is it okay to run it on race tune for daily driving, like it won't mess up the engine, just crazy throttle response right?

I hope you're enjoying your Bama tune! You have the right idea, the Race tune is perfectly safe to run all the time as your daily driver tune. Just be conscious of the added throttle response, it's very responsive!

Other then that, you're good to go!

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions or need some assistance!

Yes, mpg is effected by act bans tunes. A street, performance, and race tune can be programmed to run 87, 89, or 91/93 gas. For example my 93 performance tune has better gas mileage then a lower octane race tune, because the performance tune effects the higher rpm which the race tune effects the whole rpm band.

You shouldn't fill up with a different octane when you have more than a quarter tank left but if you have less than a quarter tank, you should be fine.

Im not sure if its ok for the high idle or not. On a cold start, mine will idle at 1500, then settle between 750-1000 and remain there. I do know the street and race tune effect the lower rpm's, but don't know if the high idle will be a problem. For the octane, i wait until my gas light is on if i am changing tunes with different octanes, because if my gas light just comes on i can still have a gallon or two of gas still I the tank

Nope. Use the gas you have the tune for.. say you fill up with 87. Use the 87 tune.

for instance, if you have your car in performance tune, and it requires the same 83 or 87, you can fill up your car with 83 octane or higher, but never a lower octane fuel, or it will damage your engine.

I just got the hybrid tune and I think I have mixed feelings. How long should I drive it for to see its full potential.

The tune didn't give me that shock factor, but I did upload the performance only and not the race tune. Any opinions will be appreciated.

Alot of people say you can feel it as soon as you give it gas.. I'm still undecided if I should get it or not.. its almost 400$
