What's your normal Idle RPM?
Depending on what your RPM is, you may want to try increasing it a bit. Check with BAMA if need be.

How many miles? Auto or Manual? Have you checked and made sure all of the hosings and clamps around the intake tube/manifold/etc were tight and secure?

I have this happen from time to time. Same thing with my 05. Even more prevalent when the a/c is on. From what I was told, it's normal and shouldn't be an issue unless they drop low enough to make the engine stall. Then you have to worry.

The only time I had this issue on an Auto is when I removed the BBK TB for the stock TB. But a new tune cleaned that right up. I have this happening on my Manual but as I do more maintenance to it, it is smoothing back out. All that is left is spark plugs.

Kevin - While Bama has been known to make some house calls I just want to go on record here and let everyone know that I am not a tuner.

I'm happy to pass customer info along to them when needed and answer questions to the best of my ability but I'm just the guy in sales and I'm not the mad scientist.

Above all if anyone needs to get in touch with them the fastest way to get with their team is to shoot a call.

Isn't that just from the fan kicking on? Always what I assumed it was. I hear the fan click on my rpms drop a bit and bounce back up.

To determine if the Bama tune is causing the problem, you should put the stock tune back in to see if that corrects it.

I've had the same prob with my bama tune, I contacted them about it and sent them a data log but it's still happening, however I'm not too worried about it. It happened off and on, it might be because the car is not warned up all the way, idk.

It's not a "PROBLEM" so much as it's just paranoia over nothing. Most all tunes adjust the sensitivity to the throttle as well as all the engine parameters to ensure it runs safe and smoothly. If your RPM needle is bouncing up and down between 500 and 900 rpm youre going to be fine. Its just what happens with these tunes. I noticed mine did that while siting idle in traffic and the car is fully warmed up. If it bothers you that much then drop it back to the stock tune and leave it be. When tuning cars beyond just simple bolt on parts you will have small little inconsistencies here and there.

I will try and make sense of this.

So you are saying your RPM is normally 900 at idle? That is a tad high. These cars normally idle between 600-700. And if it is dropping to 300, I would assume something isn't connected right or something.

Try checking all the hoses and connections and make sure everything is tight and seated correctly. 2nd, maybe try unplugging the battery for an hour and allow the car to relearn. See if that helps.

Lastly, how have you been maintaining the car? Do you clean the fuel system, changed spark plugs, etc?

Ahh you are tuned. Well, try those basic things. If the issue persists, make sure to datalog with your tuning vendor.

I have to disagree with this attitude that if you don't like it just dump your tune and tuner. I think as much as people pay for a custom tune they deserve to not deal with annoying inconsistencies, especially when these tuners advertise the excellence of their tuning teams. H

opefully the OP and other member can get Bama to correct this and achieve a solid bottom RPM.

Keep us posted OP and good luck.

No what I think that was said was to load your stock tune to verify if the BAMA tune is truly the culprit. If the problem persist then the problem lies elsewhere like a vacuum leak or something. They are not saying give up or dump the tune. Plus a good datalog will show a vacuum leak.

Did you try one of the preloaded SCT tunes to see if it does it on those as well?

What are all of your mods?

Meh, kind of. Yes check to make sure the tune is the reason. If the stock tune is loaded and it still does it you know there is a physical issue. If not then theres something in the tune that's off a little and needs dialing in.

Mostly though people need to get over the fact that just because you paid money for something, especially a tune over the internet, that everything is going to be just like stock and have the same workings of a factory car. That's just NOT the case. Each of our cars is different when it comes to the ECU, so the tuning however similar is still different.
These cars are meticulously designed and so much money has gone into engine tuning as to have a powerful, long lasting and reliable engine. Thats why when you mess with it even the professional tuners are not able to get things right perfectly the first time. If something as minuet as "bouncing rpms" is going to bother you you should stop right now. You need to allow for some small imperfections here and there.

Now again as everyone has asked if everything is on tight as it should do you happen to have any other MODS on the car? CAI?, BBTB? Just trying to get to the bottom of this all,but like the guys at BAMA we dont have the car in front of us to test drive it, see it, touch it, so it will be hard to get this figured out as easily as you may want.

Be thankful your car has not thrown a code or gotten the "WRENCH" light. You know you have something going on when that happens. (I think a few of you know of my issue with my dataloged tune from BAMA and the TB spacer...load the tune with TB spacer installed and I get a wrench light and CEL everytime. Load it WITHOUT the spacer it works just fine and after 2 weeks I can install the spacer No F-ING clue why that is but it just is.)

Does it sputter when you drive? Does it rattle down so low on the rpms that the engine almost stalls after you rev it? Does it happen when you are cold too and while your just sitting after its warmed up? Does it happen while on the HWY? How about cruise control? Is it in sport mode? Are you using the manual shift feature? Hows the gas milage? Sorry for all the questions but these are all things that you need to figure out so as to provide more detail to the guys here. Also a datalog too...Voltwings is a master with reading those, maybe try asking if he can take a look for you.

First off, I don't think anyone buys a tune so their car is "just like stock". You're taking the OPs comments out of context and bending them to fit your argument. If he was complaining about too firm of shifts or too high of engine revs or something that is adjusted with a tune, I would have no beef with what you are saying. HOWEVER, the OP is having an irregularity that would certainly piss of most tuner consumers and is NOT a nit-picky complaint.

Second, most things are bought over the internet these days, so your point is that when you buy over the internet you should expect LESS for your money? You're attitude reflects what too many old school (and dying) companies attitudes are these days when it comes to product support... "something wrong with what we sold you? Go f yourself". I don't care if he spent one dollar or $400, he deserves a working product AND I would be willing to bet that American Muscle and BAMA would much prefer that he continue to work with them so they can make it right rather than dump the tune and kiss his money goodbye or switch to MPT and spend even MORE money.

Internet based companies like AM are built around customer satisfaction and positive feedback/word-of-mouth. If they shared your attitude they wouldn't be around long, and thankfully from what I have seen, they don't share your attitude.

I don't like to argue on forums, but I really take issue whenever I see someone looking for help and another person trying to make it seem like they are being unreasonable, just because they same situation wouldn't bother them personally.

I was about to say the same thing when it comes to the a/c but when it's dropping to 300 rpm, that's a problem.
