Bama tune

Okay so I'm thinking of getting a bama tune but what does it really do for an automatic v6? Is it worth it? What are the pros and cons? And should I do any mods before I get a tune, right now the only mod I have done is getting the Borla Arak AB.

I hear "aggressive" shift points. Even with the mods that I have, these are all no tune required. And to tell u the truth in my manual I don't know exactly what it's done (the tune I mean). But like I said, for autos it is more noticeable.

You won't be disappointed. It actually works even better with the automatic because it does enhance your shift points! Quicker, harder shifts....throw a set of gears in at the same time and HANG on!!

Ur shift points will be more "aggressive". Bama offers free tunes for life so as long as you're going to modify your v6, id say it's worth it.

Here's your basic Bama unit with info on what it's suppose to do. Just follow instructions on tuner when loading into car. As you may know, may lose warranty coverage if problem is related to the tune.

Tuner and gears are the best mods you can do to the mustang besides a supercharger or turbo. I would get an MPT tune costs only $75 they are loads better then a Bama Tune. Used to have a bama tune for 4-5 months then switched to MPT. Hands down MPT is better. Better shift points more agressive more top end power etc. You will see tons of threads of people who prefer MPT over Bama. Buy the SCT handheld tuner directly from MPT and they give you free tunes.

Hey Austin & Gumbus - Welcome - Good question and a Bama X4 Tuner will work wonders on your V6 - From improved throttle response to a modest bump in horsepower along with firmer, faster, crisper shifts you're going to think that it's a completely different car. Speaking from personal experience it's also going to let you pull on older GT's which is always a plus

In regards to getting other mods before doing so you don't really need to do so but if I we're to have a 11-14 V6 Dropped in my lap right now I would start with an Airaid Cold Air Intake & Bama Tuner Kit because about 90% of our customers turn around and come right back for an intake!

Let me know if you're to have any other questions at all and I'm here to help any way I can!

Hey sticks123 -Thanks for taking the time to post up your feedback here! It's definitely one of the best mods that can be installed on the 3.7!

Austin - The turnaround time is going to be roughly the same once you're to have the Tuner ordered to having it delivered - After the order is placed you'll receive a confirmation email and then a tune request form from Bama (I usually suggest calling in to have your info submitted just so you can go over everything with one of the tuning specialists) when Stick says look into gears he mean the rear gears (Gear Ratio) Going with a different gear ratio will essentially propel the car into the sweet spot in the RPM range that much faster. It's as simple as plugging the device into your vehicle, having the tune loaded and you're good to go!

let me know if you're to have any other questions and I'm here to help!

Does the tuner have to be plugged into the car at all times? If I have to take my car in for warranty stuff is it as simple as unplugging the tuner so that ford doesn't void my warranty?

You plug it in for abut 5min to load the tune to your car and then unplug it. It is suggested to revert the car back to stock when taking it to your dealer because it can void your warranty. There is a debate that they can still tell if you tuned the car even when reverted to stock but that it an entire new conversation. They arent even going to check its tuned if youre just taking it in for a repair or something, if it is computer related then I would wait on the tuner or at least revert back to stock before taking it to them, if its like an oil change then just leave it tuned.

OP, My 2011 3.7 automatic has been tuned since 5k miles. The factory tune and shift points for the automatics on the 3.7 and 5.0 are a joke, very loose and sloppy but in regard to the 3.7, pathetic compared to it tuned.

I have bana tunes as well as MPT and Steeda. In regard to your question about Bama, they are top knotch in my opinion and when tuned its a night and day difference compared to the factory settings. I have never had any issues with Bama and my car runs great with them.

When tuned, your shift points will be changed and made much firmer which is fantastic. Your thorrtle response will be greatly improved. The tune will unlock horsepower and torque the engine was holding back and will make your pony faster from a dig, mid and higher speeds. You asked about con's which there are some: Con's:

* You may hurt some 4.6 owners feelings.
* You may loose certain coverage on the factory warranty.
* You will become addicted to modding which will cause money to be stolen by American Muscle. (Ha ha ha)

Austin - Looks like Chaz helped out here! You're going to essentially have the device plugged into your OBDII port (adjacent to your left knee when you're sitting in the drivers seat) If you're going to head in for warranty service we and Bama suggest setting the car back to stock.

Thank Chaz - Just to add to this if they're looking for it they'll see it - There's an electronic footprint!

Thanks for your feedback here Kona - Always happy to hear from you! Yes - You guys definitely hurt my feelings on the daily - My 3V has been decimated and I "know" how to drive too.

Austin if you have any other questions don't hesitate to let me know or shoot me a PM, I'm always around to help out!

What tune do you run? I'm planning on just running one of the 87 tunes because I really don't feel like paying for the premium gas lol. Would it even be with it for the 87 race tune or should I just suck it up and run a 93 tune lol

My friends v6 has the jlt cai and a Bama tune running race mode and he loves it. It is very quick off the line. You would think it was a 5.0

IMO, and this is just my opinion. If you're getting a tune don't waste your time with an 87 tune. Go right for a 91/93 depending which you have in your area. It's only an extra $4-5 for a fillup.

It's not that an 87 tune is bad... but if you're spending the money just go for the most performance you can get out of the box which is a 91/93 tune.

Sir, I run bama's old 91octane Hybrid tune. I typically fill my car with 93 octane however some stations in my region only carry 91 octane. That's why I had Bama make me a 91 octane tune. Bama no longer makes a tune called hybrid but I hear their new V2 and race tunes are killer and even better than their old hybrid tune. Don't think the V2 tunes are available for our 3.7 yet.

The tuning device comes with three tunes so definitely get yourself a 87 octane tune along with 91 and 93. Definitely get a 91 or 93 race tune depending on your area of fuel options.

Austin - I know it's apples to oranges but I run the Race tune all day every day - It's just that much more entertaining and responsive for how I like to drive but I would suggest having the Race tune optimized at 93 and then using 91 for the performance tune as it's going to make a massive difference!

Thanks guys! But why not go ahead and use 93 for the performance tune if I'm using 93 as the race tune?

Also, how many ponies does this really add to your car if you go with the 93 race tune

Also, how many ponies does this really add to your car if you go with the 93 race tune
You can use 93 octane on the performance tune as well as the race tune. The race tune is just going to be more aggressive than the performance tune and the race tune will unlock the most HP

Not sure if you're asking or just confused . Either way they pulled up the correct threads Voltwings and GrabberBlue1994 posted up.They are both usefull for those considering doing new mods or are unsure of which tunes to get. It good read. Grabber did a hell of a job reviewing the Bama tunes, customer service staff and the like.
