2014 Cyclone feels like it's lost power

My mods so far are a Airaid CAI, BBK shorty headers, BBK catted x pipe, roush axle backs, a BAMA 93 octane race tune. I have felt like my car has been very sluggish lately, so me and my gf lined our cars up (she drives and 2011 3.7 bone stock) and she wins every time. Obviously something isn't adding up. I just ordered the BAMA v2 tunes hoping that will fix the issue. Any ideas what else could be my issue?

What transmissions in both cars, what rims and tires, how many miles, and what gears?

They're both autos. She has factory size 235/50/18 (but new tires) on the stock pony package wheels, I have 245/45/18 Falkens on the same wheels. She has ~53k miles, I'm about to hit 50k (I drive a lot) and we both have stock 2.73 gears

i'm not familiar with that Fuse 47 or whatever, but it sounds like it may be that. Look into that first.

I'll give that a shot. I have reloaded the tune twice to see if it corrects it but no. And I'm thinking about installing 3.73s to get it to shift a little more aggressively

I don't believe changing gears will do anything to the way the car shifts. It just changes how sooner/later it'll shift.

Since you have an auto i'm going to say that may be your problem...and not because its an auto not a manual but because of the way the autos run.
Fuse 47 is just the fuse you pull that clears all "learned" driving habits of the driver. The car is going to always want to lean toward a more economical drive and will basically cancel out your tune.

Now the other thing too could be the fact you are using a "canned" Bama tune. Because you have an auto i will say to get yourself a MPT race tune and ask for the firmer shifts. With this you will have a better feel and overall performance driven feel to the car.

Lastly if you have a laptop i suggest you do a set of data-logs to your car. they will measure out certain parameters of how your car is performing and will also allow for a tuner (BAMA or MPT) to use the data to dial in a custom tune for you as well.

I will admit i didnt think much of Bama at first. Enjoyed their tunes for a bit but once i gotta good Data-log in it made the car feel and perform a whole lot better than just their canned tune.

I think if you have a tuner you can do a KAM reset which stands for KeepAliveMemory. I think thats the same as the fuse #47 trick just faster. It may shift weird after doing it, give it 20 miles or so to relearn before going WOT.
