As I understand it, the Race Tune is the most aggressive of the three tunes. Now with the best aspects from the Hybrid Tune added to the others, what is a general description of the Street Tune vs. the Performance Tune? For example what are their respective strong points when considering between the two?

Not sure but coming from California im pretty cautious. I just want to make aure I can pass this State inspection. Apparently they can write you a traffic violation for not having front plates?! Cali they just give you a hard time or write you a fix it ticket which doesnt affect your driving record.

Anyway, thanks for clearing that up for us
MD-You're very welcome-Sorry I wasn't clear before, I didn't mean to shoot an answer out that sounded like a riddle! Let me know if you have any other questions, I'm always here to help out!

Ted-As long as you're happy with your current tune I wouldn't see the need to do so. We eliminated the tune because we wanted to have the best aspects incorporated into our current Street, Performance, and Race tune. Again-It wouldn't think you would need to do so.

That's pretty spot on-We again wanted to take the best aspects from this tune and have them merged into the current lineup to make sure that everyone is making the best power possible.


If anyone has any other questions don't hesitate to let me know or shoot Bama a call-We're always here to help out.

I dont know, I have had nothing but trouble with bama tune for my 2012 v6. Knocking and jerking from 1st to 2nd gear. Had them rewrite tune 4 times and all they did was soften the hell out of it.

I have the Bama tune as well. I had my street tune set for 91 octane, and both performance and race tunes set for 93 octane, out of all three I prefer and use the 93 Race tune as a DD. couldn't be happier with the difference it made with the smoothness of the engine. it used to hickup around 3500-4000 rpms but all 3 tunes seemed to fix the problem. much better throttle response as well. MPT may be better but dont be bumed if you already spent the money on the Bama. its still worth it in my opinion.

Do you notice a difference between 87 Street and 91 street?

A 91 Street tune is like a woman getting larger breasts and going size B cup. It defeats the purpose. 87 Street makes sense and is good. 91 Octane, get R or at least a P tune from AM. The idea behind higher octane fuel is to maximize a cars power. Am's street tune is the least aggressive of their tunes so why put 91 Octane with a least aggressive tune?

Run 91 or 93 with a performance or race tune. Those shouldn't be with street tunes, only street tune should be 87.

I want a 87 Performance Hybrid Street/Race tune that will smoke the tires but get me the best possible MPG but it has to sound like it has a cam but shift buttery smooth. Oh did I mention I want it to give me 50 hp to the wheels. Now get to it.

I'm more than aware what these tunes are for Kona.
I just ment as a general speaking of the tunes based on their differences in octaine rating. Either way my point is I remember pre-Hybrid tune that their 87 performance and 91 performance tune didn't do much for me in terms of feeling any difference. As a result I just stuck with the race tune for over a year and a half, then got the Hybrid and really liked that for a while. Now I hear these new tunes are like night and day when just comparing 87 and 91 tunes of the same type.
Now that I'm in a state with 93 I plan on loading a couple to test the difference I feel from my current 87 tunes.

For me, the race tune was a little "jumpy" around town. I currently run the street tune. It feels better to me for daily driving. Oh and I run 93 octane.

Difference in BAMA Tunes

As far as I am concerned, BAMA and/or AM should have some sort of write-up attempting to describe, in detail, what to expect from their Tunes and the differences between them. I guess they feel it's not in their best interest to get into that level of detail.

In a nut she'll it's, " What to expect over stock:
Street = fast

Performance = Faster

Race = Fastest :thumbup:"

Then you choose your octaine....
Wow...i just reread the thread and this has gone way past what the OP asked, lol.

93 OCTANE on street tune is just plain old silly.

Remember, It's like having B cup breast implants.

Hahahaha too funny!
I've been running 93 ever since I read an article (one of the popular Mustang mags I believe) that showed a 6 rwhp gain (dyno proven) by just switching from 87 to 93. Now, does a tune make up for that? I have no idea. It'd be nice if we could see dyno results of each tune and each octane. Be tough to do, but would be some really good info.
