Bama tune question.

OK so I got my 3.73s done yesterday. When I picked up the car I loaded the new tune (bama93race) started the car and all was good. I put in first and started to leave the parking when at around 2k in first the car started to surge really bad to the point where I had to push in the clutch and stop. Before heading he on the highway I tried to replicate the problem but I couldn't and the drive home went fine. Any thoughts or suggestions besides calling bama. To describe what it felt like it was like when your in traffic with a manual and the car is barely coasting in first and you sometimes get that surging feeling before it actually stalls but times 10. Do you think it was me just having to get used to the new gears or the tune?

How was the change from going to shorties?

To be honest its hard to tell right now. I just installed the tune for the gears and the headers yesterday and still doing the break in period. I can tell you though they changed the tone of the exhaust quite a bit!

I really wouldn't worry about it. An agressive tune takes a bit of a learning curve at first.
Congrats!

Yes a aggressive tune, but not a bama tune.

..it is much more aggressive than stock. So, yes, an aggressive tune. Not the most aggressive.

I've used the 93 race before, just never had a surging issue before. It was my first time loading that tune because it was revised for the 3.73s and the bbk shorties. Tbh I don't find the 93race all that aggressive, I find all three about the same with some minor differences. Not that its a bad thing.

Have you driven the car since and experienced the same issue? I'm wondering if you just needed to go through the idle relearn process. Normal driving will eventually take you through the same process and build the KAM memory too.

If you're still having the same issues after additional driving, than there's gotta be something that can be adjusted. You shouldn't be surging or almost stalling.

Send me a PM with your First/Last name and shipping address. I'll take your info to the Bama Team directly and work this out. I'm sure they would like a datalog of the symptom too. If you could take one, it would be very helpful! Here's instructions how to datalog a 11-14 Mustang.

Give me a shout if I can help with anything else too!
