Dyno Results - Bama 93P & 93R Tunes

Not sure if this is going to be a duplicate, but here goes:

I've been wondering what the Bama 93 octane tunes have been doing to my engine, so I took it to the dyno this afternoon. The chart is attached.

It's a 2012 3.7 premium coupe, automatic. I installed the Airaid CAI/Bama tunes package from AM. Yes, the CAI is a "curse-out loud-do-it-over-twice-scratch-your head" kinda install! (hints: read but don't follow the directions, lube the collar, put it on the carb first, take apart the hose clamps and reassemble them after you've got it together. Assemble all parts THEN tighten but you'll have to jigger with the air box to get it to sit right). Anyway ...

Bottom line up front ... 264 RWHP on the 93P tune and 267 RWHP on the 93R tune. Warm engine (about 220 degrees).

I know it will cause a debate, but if the drive train is causing 15% loss, I'm putting out 315 HP on the 93R and if the loss is 20%, then I'm putting out 334 HP. If really feels more toward the 334 than the 315.

The most comforting part of the whole experience was knowing the Fuel/air ratio was about 13.2 or so. I'm told that was just about ideal. The guy who did the dyno, Dustin, was great and said he felt the tune and diagnostics he pulled looked really good.

Best $100 I've spent in a long time! (dyno that is, not the CAI/tune package!)

Pedal straight down runs just a tad past redline before it shifts to 2nd on the 93R tune. A bit concerning but I don't do it that often.

I'm off to the track next Wednesday to plunk down my $20 and see what kind of times I'll get.

This is not to be construed as an advertisement for Bama or AM but, hey,if they want to throw free product to me, I'm game!

The tunes are the most fun I've had in a long while and I can't imagine anything being easier. It took 11 minutes to load the first time and about 4 minutes, literally, to change between 93S, 93P or 93R. I can almost do it at a stoplight. Haven't tried it and probably not recommended!
