Feeling Sluggish

Hey Guys, lately my 2012 V6 convertible has been feeling pretty sluggish around the 2k range. I have an Airaid CAI and Magnaflow Competition Axle backs everything else is stock. I'm considering a Tuner; going back and forth between Bama and MPT. Not trying to break the bank but would like a little more mid-range power. Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks!

And while waiting for the tune purchase, pull fuse #47 out for 15mins or so. Its a small workaround if you have an Auto trans.

Hmm never heard that one before. Just out of curiosity, what does that do?

It re-sets the responsiveness of your auto transmission. It always starts out responsive,and as you drive gets sluggish. I think as a marketeer,that was designed so when you test drive, you don't release the Gob-Numbs at first! And to please the Gobs, used the program "adaptive learning" to keep it great at the beginning, before it got sluggish for tests.

Mustang Fuse #47 resets the trans memory for "adaptive learning" that was put in place to yield good numbers on Gobermint tests.

But who knows, maybe it was designed so soccer moms would not get freaked out if they gave the car some throttle peddle....I seriously doubt that, the Chevy Impala's torque management does that instead. If you mash that Impala gas on the VVT 2014 V6 it pulls hard and the cheap tires spin and front drive pulls you to the side; you let off and it leaves you learching, you give it gas so you don't get hit by traffic on the left because your turning right,and the TQ-Man bogs the motor down so bad you almost get hit before it will accelerate again.

Mustang Fuse #47 resets the trans memory for "adaptive learning" that was put in place to yield good numbers on Gobermint tests.

Its on most all the mustang forums. Even folks that built relays to cut it out each start. I never went to that extreme, just pulled it once a week till I got a tune that removed the "adaptive learning"

Fuse #47 is under that fuse block under the hood on the passenger side back to the fire wall from the ECM and Window Fluid bottle by the grill. Remove the cover, see #47 printed on the block. Use needle nose pliers or a fuse puller to pull fuse, drink an energy drink (or other beverage) while watching an episode of Trailer Park Boys, then put fuse back in, start and enjoy.

I bet you will see a difference indeed, that will hold you while you save up for the tuner that will give even better results.

A tune will definitely help with this. You really can't go wrong with either of the tune options that you listed. However, we've tuned more Mustangs than anyone else in the world and can definitely deliver you a safe and powerful tune for your Mustang!

Here's a little bit about how we write our tunes: For every Bama Tune we ask you 19 questions about your specific Mustang, including your unique mods and style of driving. This info helps us write custom tunes from the ground-up for your Mustang's mods that will give you the most horsepower that we can safely deliver. We're also constantly developing our tunes! Between our 14 different Project Mustangs and tons of street/track and dyno testing (on our in-house Dynojet 224xLC), we're looking for any minor tweaks to be made that can benefit you guys. We're also part of Fords Technology Transfer Program & Work very closely with Ford to insure that all of our tunes are perfect!

We also offer free tunes for life. Anytime you add a new modification, want a revision made, or just want to try a different tune all you have to do is hit up the Bama team and they'll gladly hook you up!

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future! We'd be glad to answer any questions you may have.
