Tuned 3.7 MT82 from a new/old tuner

Hey all,

I just wanted to share my experience with the community. I recently had the pleasure of having my 3.7 tuned. I did not go the traditional route of Bama or MPT.

It all started on the for sale thread, there was a SCT tuner for sale.

This seller unknown to me was offering to include a tune or two with the price. After many questions and back and forth emails as well as some internet research (fact checking) I found out I was speaking with one of the original Bama tune developers Matt Honeycutt.

The price was right and I figured what the heck, if the tune doesn't work, well, I will have the tuner and can always purchase what I need elsewhere.

A few days and a great deal of skepticism later I had loaded a 91 race tune on my mustang.

I have seen a few people ask what is the point of tuning a mustang with a manual transmission. Or if there are any gains etc... At the time my car was bone stock with 2.73 gears.

Well I am firstly and greatly impressed. My gas milage on the highway has increased on average 1-2 MPG. More importantly to me when I am romping on it the throttle response is NIGHT and DAY.

My car felt so much more powerful than before. My neighbor has a MPT tuned 2012 3.7 auto with 3.31 gears. I can take him by a 1/4 to 1/2 car length from a dig to 80mph.

I was excited and then somewhat depressed as I thought well now what do I do if I ever need revisions? I am so impressed with the tune I can't imagine letting anyone else or any other company tune my ride.

I was delighted when I found out that Matt and his team are now offering their own tuning service. If you are in the market for a tune, if you have a manual and are not sure if there are any real benefits, if you have a tune and are not happy I would suggest trying these guys out. The team they have put together is small however impressive. I can't say enough nice things about Matt and just wanted to share my experience and encourage others to perhaps take a less conventional route. You may be surprised in a big way like I was.

Here is their website:

Here is a bit about Matt:
Matt Honeycutt is Redliners' high-performance, Ford tuning specialist. He's intimately familiar with all Ford Powertrain Control Modules (PCMs) and is an expert in calibrating personal and fleet vehicle tunes to achieve maximum performance and fuel efficiency. Some of his previous accomplishments include: Lead Calibrator at BamaChips (now BamaPerformance), pioneering the first successful 2013 in a 2012 mustang cluster conversion, and inventing the Black Box of Power (BBOP). In his free time, he enjoys crusing in his Shelby GT500 and writing technical articles in "The Mustang Source forum" (under the alias ZeroAviation). He loves going to local events and is always looking for ways to help individuals push past the Redline.
