It is a lot of reasoning, but for the next week all I have to do is think and reason and watch Netflix before the semester starts and I am miserable for the next 3 1/2 months.

Man, I have the install down to a science the number of times I've switched it back to the stock box and back. Literally 4 or 5 times in the past 2 months. I can do the install in 20 minutes or less. Took me over an hour the first time.

Just installed the new 93R tune that Ryan sent over, and I think I am in love.

I cannot believe how much Ford leaves untapped.

This is good to hear. I sent in my request for revisions earlier this week, so hopefully they will be here soon. Can't wait to try out the revised 93R!

Woohoo ! Glad you like it. That was my reaction when I loaded it up too. Super smooth. Feels like a high-end car with untapped power just ready to launch!

In all seriousness I'm really glad that the info. Helped you make an educated purchase! It's also so good to have so many first hand accounts here on this thread. You're going to love your car tuned. I debated for literally almost 6 months before tuning mainly because the lack of info being in one place that I could make sense of and process and come to my own decision. I'm glad to hear this thread is really helping others who were in the same position I was (and still am to an extent, gotta get those Dyno #'s!)
I can't wait to Dyno next week hopefully if all goes well!

BAMA- What are you really getting from them?

Got my revised tunes in today. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble getting my computer to recognize my X4. I figured updating the tuner may help, so now I'm sitting through 547 updates. Kinda weird they don't come with the latest firmware already installed.

Edit: so after sitting through all 547 updates my computer still can't find the X4. When I click "load custom tunes" in the SCT software it says "device not found". Any suggestions?

Edit 2: finally got it to work. Problem was due to corrupt/missing drivers.

Hey guys sorry for the absence. A bunch of personal crap came up and its going to be a few rough weeks coming up. I am hoping to get my headers and exhaust in sometime over the next week whenever I can get a free day ..... Then it will be dyno time.
I've seen a lot of new people post literally the same questions over and over that have been answered 100 times in this thread. The purpose of this thread is to prevent that and to have a thread you can read and be informed on tuners. Please use the resources that are available to you instead of just asking the same questions that have been answered 100 times on different threads.

I actually haven't been able to drive my car for a few days due to the personal crap going on I have been at the hospital and not home going back and forth so I am excited to drive the stang today. I refuse to pay the ridiculous fees to park over night there .
Sorry again for the absence, full exhaust on and then it's time!!! Any questions feel free to ask

Wishing you the best, man. I wish whoever is in the hospital a speedy recovery.

Let me know before you go to the dyno. shunc's dyno guy emailed me the raw data. I've been very busy wrapping up my old job before my move next week, as well as looking for housing and all that crap, so I haven't gotten a chance to analyze it. But since your car is almost the same setup as shunc's, except for BBK shorties instead of MAC, it will be a very interesting comparison. I just want to talk to you before you go so we can make sure that the pulls are done the way they should be and that the operator can get the data off the computer. Would also be great if we could get a datalog at the same time, which we could not do for shunc.

Thank you ! Hopefully everything will be ok, I really think it will, just a s--t situation.
I will let you know when I make the appointment , ill post up a sound clip and thread on here of my new exhaust once I get it in and it'll prob be a week from then... I have my police physical in 2 weeks too just horrible timing for everything lol.

Good luck with moving !! You will love Texas and your stang will too!

Guys... thanks for this Post. I have been looking for something like this. Im gonna buy AM/Bama on December thanks to this post/investigation/analisys
One question tho, have everyone that bought the tuner have to call Bama to "retune"? Or have anyone received the correct tune the first time?

It doesn't happen enough to make a difference. If I send for a tune and my car drives odd I'll resend for another and it come back better but again it rarely happens.

Grabber, now that's it's been a few months since you've tuned, how has it been with regards to adaptive learning of your automatic transmission and fuse 47? You have a routine for doing the pull? Or it simply hasn't been a problem on your car?

I did it once about 2 weeks after I orginially tuned. Just for the heck of it and to know how to do it. To be honest I really haven't felt any diminishing performance since and its been over a month. It's my DD I would notice diminishing performance and I do go WOT a few times a day . Really can't tell any difference at all to be honest , haven't had a reason to pull it
