Food for thought

Power train warranty is five years or
60,000 miles.

Now, after all of that, if I were you I would try the box tune that comes with the SCT4. I chose 91 octane for better compression, and set my max rev at 7000, then removed the max speed. The box tune actually greatly improved the dumbed down stock tune of my auto transmission and my Mustang's overall performance was greatly improved.

I would only pay for a "custom tune" if my Mustang was heavily modded. Otherwise you're wasting your money.
The only thing I would add to this is, if you buy the SCT tuner new from MPT, Bama or Steeda, you will get the boxed tunes that come with the SCT tuner and the custom tunes from MPT, Bama or Steeda are included free.

Just trying to get more familiar with some of the details myself and found this so far.

Steeda - SCT Tuner with 1 custom tune - $400
Bama - SCT Tuner with 2 custom tunes - $400
MPT - SCT Tuner with 3 custom tunes - $450

Got mine from MPT during Christmas sale for $375. Best time to buy the big ticket items is around the end of the year. Have always saved money. I just checked MPT's website and they have the SCT tuner and 3 custom tunes bundle for $400 ($399.95). Here's the link: http://www.morepowertuning.com/sct-7...d-mustang-3.7l

That's good to know about the end of year deals. I'm not quite ready for mine yet.

That's the MPT ad I was looking at. The title is misleading. When you go down to "Please Choose an Option", you have to add $50 for the MPT tunes. (Unless I missed something.)

You're absolutely right about the drop down option for the $50 tunes. I missed that, must be new. Not surprised they went up a bit. From my own experience and many others, MPT is the best tune for our 3.7L V6 engines. I've been running my MPT tunes for over 2 years and have had zero issues and plenty of fun

Also, at the time I got mine, before Christmas, MPT was the only one that was offering a break on the SCT tuner with 3 tunes.

Little curious on something. I saw a fellow Stang owner's engine bay (awesome by the way he painted the air plenum and block all candy red!) and he had the "Crankcrase or Oil Breather's" installed on his engine.

Is there any real use for these? I thought they were mainly used for "High Powered" vehicles?
