Long Distance on a Bama 93 Race Tune

I installed a Bama 93 race tune and love it! Mileage is amazing as is the performance. My question is this: will this have any negative effects on my engine running at 70 - 80 mph for 4 - 5 hours at a time?

Re: Long Distance on a Bama 93 Race Tune

I didn't think so. I'm having it dyno'd next week. I'm really curious to actually see the performance and stats.

Yea, you'll be fine. Many on here have been runnin tunes for thousands of miles, I've probably put 22000 on my car with tunes on it, once drove 950 miles at once, each way to and from florida.

Post dyno sheets when done

Sl1nk,

Great Question!

Our Bama's are 100% save to run for any period of time. The only reason in SOME cases that we will recommend to drive around on a performance tune, is because the pedal response on the race tune is so touchy(which I personally love!). So the answer is Yes, you can drive around on your race tune for long periods of time!

I am glad to hear that everything is going great with your tune. We appreciate the feedback!

Post up a dyno sheet & some 1/4 mile slips, we would love to see!

Hit me up if you have any questions!

- Dan

Because of your tune, your car is actually able to make the same power at lower RPM's than stock. So if you drive exactly at the same speed you normally would have before the tune and you will be spinning the the engine at a slightly lower RPM's, as a result you get better mpg's and cause less wear on all the moving parts thus possibly increasing engine life. Unless you are given a bad tune, but that's another topic.

Thank for posting this Dan I'm switching back to the 93 race tune ASAP. I notice the throttle response in the performance it just not as nice as the race. I read different postings at all types of sites and some people recommended not running the race for normal driving but with your comment here it totally changes my mind. Woo freaking Hoo time for some fun!!!

Wtf are you talking about? Unless he put different gears then he won't be "spinning the engine at slightly lower RPM's" just because he has more power.

Re: Long Distance on a Bama 93 Race Tune

most tunes are only modifications to WOT params so normal driving would utilize normal params so you would be just as fine as before the tune

Read what I said, I'm not talking about gears, but when you have a performance tune you make more power correct? Speaking from experience, the race tune I'm using increased the power throughout the entire RPM range, so as a result I can short shift a bit and I end up cruising at a slightly lower RPM as a result.

That assuming that you don't drive around like an a$$hat and race everything you see.

I've been rolling on the 93 Street tune for about a week and a half. I've yet to try the 93 Performance or 93 Race tune.

So far so good. I haven't really got on it too much. I have done a couple of pulls getting on the freeway and man, you can really feel the difference at the top of the gear. It's almost like a sudden boost. I'm really happy with my car right now. This weekend I will come out of hiding and my friends will see what I've been up to.
