Bama Tuner 87 Street vs 87 Performance?

What is the difference between the two on a 2012 v6? Also, what is the difference between the 87 and 89 Octane and how would I switch between the two at a gas station?

Street is more of a gas friendly tune with a low end grunt. Performance has more mid range power and race is most aggressive with top end power.
Dont switch octanes regularly, try to stick to one and put at least the octane you're tuned for. If you tune higher than what you have in the tank use up that octane, full up about half way with the octane you're tuning for then use that up then fill up with that octane and tune. Just to make sure you arent just mixing octanes.

Most tuner manufacturers recommend you go back to the stock tune, then re-flash with the next tune. Some bypass this with no problem. I'd ask the tech group of your tuner manufacturer to see what they recommend as far as changing tunes when changing otane gas fillups.

I agree with MidnightBlueGT, choose one tune, and use the fuel octane it is tuned for, and stay with it. Switching tunes to suit an octane you decide to fuel up with for the day/week/month risks a tune to not load correctly, stranding your ride at a gas station.

The Street tune is going to be the most "calm" tune that we offer. This tune is set up for someone who is just looking for a little more than a stock Mustang. You're going to notice big power gains, torque, acceleration, drive ability, gas mileage, throttle response and much more on all of our tunes! The more aggressive tune you choose and the higher the octane, the more aggressive the overall tune will be.

So basically, the 93 Race tune is going to be the most aggressive tune we offer! Out of the tunes you listed, I would recommend running the 89 Performance tune. That will be a really good tune and probably just enough for the street. If you ever want to get a little more out of the car, start running 93 octane and load the Race tune!

I hope this helps. Hit me up if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future! Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764 and they'll get you squared away!
