Going Steeda tuned

Well yesterday I ordered my first tunes for my PP 3.7. I went with Steeda, for what little peace of mind they offered, gave them all my details and am now waiting on them to send everything out I guess. I am not quite sure what to expect from the tune, but I figure it's better to expect less and be surprised later on.

So with my manual transmission and 3.31s will I feel a massive difference?

I tried to convince to Steeda rep on here to kick in a free black windshield banner with my order, but I don't think it worked lol.

You will be very happy with your purchase ... I am confident you will notice a difference right out of the box.

Post some pictures of your ride once you get everything install!

Due to our cars having adaptive ECUs, I did not notice a HUGE difference right away. It took roughly 50miles to feel the full effect of the tune. I was kind of let down when I first installed it. Then realized after I got back in the car to drive it a couple days later how much more responsive it was and the power gain it had achieved. Top 5 best mods I've installed though.

I enjoyed my Steeda tune, went through a couple of revisions back while Gus was still there. It was a strong tune, but then I went to my MPT and before any revisions the car felt more alive. The MPT is fully dialed in and it's been great.

At some point I may toss the steeda tune back in, pull a log and send it to them to see what, if any tweaks/improvements they think are left to compare.

It should be arriving today. However I also have to leave my car at the dealership while they replace the airbag.

I looked for a long time a few months ago for a ford procal tune for the 3.7. Sadly I found nothing. Hence i opted for Steeda.

So far so good. Finally got the tuner and loaded up my 93 tune. I'm not floored out of the box, but I put around 20 miles on it on my back roads and noticed that it is waking up. My butt dyno feels like it is pulling harder. I'll post back here again after I put 50+ miles on it.

On a side note I like how I can go in and set the idle rpm.

Drive it around and get used to it, you're gonna want more in a few weeks.... get a tune from MPT, with race shifts if you're auto. Best $70 you'll ever spend.

I have a manual, however, after i put some more miles on it.... It pulls. 1st and 2nd are great. It feels like it's got more power down low. I'm really happy with it so far. I guess I should data log now.

Meh...If you dont plan to do any other mods to it then go right ahead and data log it, but if you want to add more things I'd wait till after youve installed them. That way you can get everthing dialed in at once. I have the Pony Package as well and in manual. Its a nice difference over the standard look. I love the lower fog light most!

Wouldnt that only apply if he was going to dyno the car after every tune?
I've never dynoed my car or had the chance to so I waited before i did my logs.

I assume he's talking about getting a fully dialed in tune before trying another tuner or adding any more mods.

You wouldnt want it to be "dailed" in with one mod only to go and pay to have it "dailed" in again because you changed or added another mod. Its why I was saying to get your mods in order and instaled first, then go and get everything tuned at once.

I added a Megaspacers TB spacer to my car AFTER I got a fine tuned datalog and it kept throwing codes...I have to wait to add it once I get a "canned" tune loaded and then retune everything.

I did the same.
I went from 2.73s to 3.31s and my car was a jack rabbit with a bama 91 tune. I can only imagine the amount of thrust that thing has with 3.73s

Datalogging doesn't cost anything through Steeda. He can datalog his initial tune to perfection, and when he adds more mods he can do it again.
