What 0-60 times should I expect?

I have a 2014 v6 automatic with roush axlebacks JLT cold air intake and 91R Bama tune. Gears are stock 2.73 235/50/18 tires and all else stock.

I did a track apps run tonight and came up with a 6.1 best. After reading a lot of other posts and seeing low to mid 5's with similar set ups I'm quite disappointed because I bested a 6.3 with a bone stock car in drive mode.

I really want to say it has something to do with my bama tune because to be quite honest I haven't really had the best gains after install. I still feel my car is VERY sluggish on all tunes(street performance and race.) anyone have any suggestions or similar experiences with bama? Is MPT better?

VMP, Lund, AED, MPT most would say are all better choices.

Well I guess I just favored the whole "free tunes for life crap" now it's starting to look like it would of been worth it to just buy one tune after installing all my mods.

Going from Bama to MPT is like going from an un-tuned car to a Bama tune. MPT turned my car into a beast. Trust me man, I have both Bama and MPT and the difference is noticeable. Be sure to get the race shift setting, it shifts so fast you can chirp the tires going through the first couple gears in an auto!

OP,

That's a good question and a tough one. There's going to be a load of variables that would come into play here like where the cars located, how above or below sea level, weight of the vehicle, how much air in the tires, etc. Did we get some datalogs set up from you on this at all to take a closer look? I'm really interested to hear what Bama would say about it and wanted to see if you could shoot us a call so we could take a look! They be reached directly over at 888.226.9764.

Let me know if you have any questions in the meantime and I'm here to help any way I can!

Hey Alex, well to answer a few of those questions, I'm located in central California. So that would be in a valley. I am always sure to have my car maintenanced so I would assume the amount of air in the tires is what ford deams adequate.

No I really am not too familiar with data logging. I understand most SCT applications only run on windows and I have a Mac. I do have access to windows if needed though.

I think the value you get from bama is great with free tunes for life and all but the only two phone calls I've made didn't give me the best first impression. I spoke to two different reps and they both seemed unenthusiastic to help or work with me.

I do appreciate you reaching out to though. Maybe after I figure out how to data log the techs can take a closer look at what's all going on with my car. Thank you.

Hey, Thanks for letting me know about the location as well as how you're maintaining the vehicle. Elements like this are important for us to get a better idea of what's going on! Data Logging would be akin to us hooking you up to an EKG (Elektrokardiogram) which measures the electrical activity of the human heart. (Apple to Oranges i know!) But with the Tuner we'll be able to see variables being logged to better understand how the vehicles operating.

I'm sorry to hear about the level of enthusiasm over the phone here as well! We pride ourselves on our customer service and I'm not entirely sure what was in the water here those days. I wanted to ask if I could have my best tuner reach out to you so we could get a better idea of what's going on and how to help. If that's okay to do so simply shoot me a PM with your phone number and a time that's best for you and I'll see to it that you're contacted today.

-Alex

For just $75, give MPT a try. You won't be sorry and i bet you'll be doing 0 to 60 in around 5.8 - 5.9 with your mods.

Hey OP-

I just wanted to make sure that our lead calibrator got in touch with you and you didn't have any questions. I pulled your tune info earlier and saw some kind comments as well!

" I'm looking to get the best throttle response possible. I love the tunes I just feel like my car still has that 2 second delay after i hit the gas for the power to be transferred. Thank you Bama performance."

Please keep me in the loop if you're to have any questions in the meantime and I'd love to hear how everything turns out.

-Alex

I just got off the phone with Paul, the senior calibration specialist at Bama and he was very helpful with informing how and why things work with the tune and my car. Bama does a real good job at keeping their customers happy and keeping them informed on how their product works to improve our vehicles performance. It seems that driving conditions at a big part on speed timing and such.

Thanks for all of the replys!

OP,

Sorry about the delay! I'm happy to hear that you spoke with Paul here! Please don't hesitate to shoot me a PM if you're to have any questions in the future at all, I'm always here to help!
