Best Tuning options for my 2012 3.7 V6

I am new here and I am looking for some honest feedback on the best tuning option for my 2012 V6 automatic. She is a summer car and run her for a short 4-5 months of the summer season. I currently have 18,000 miles on her. I use her for some weekend drives and Mustang car shows and gatherings. Looking to get a few more horses out of her and may do a 3.73 rear end in her soon. I do have a AirAid CAI at present. Thanks for your input...

First off, ypy should have way more miles on that pony. Get out there and drive that sucker. Ha ha ha. JK. I will give you my feedback on this because I personally have MPT, Bama and Steeds tunes with my 3.7. My feedback is not from reading about opinions (nothing wrong with that) of tunes but from actually using and driving with the three tunes.

I have a 2011 3.7, bought her with 22 miles on and at 5k miles had her tuned by Bama. Ran Bama for years and never one issue. Great quality tunes from my experience.

MPT, they have mastered the 3.7 mustang. Their tunes for the 3.7 are just wicked. The shift points are just off the chart crazy awesome. Steeda tune was good, solid but my least favorite. I like my Bama tune more than my Steeds tune.

My recommendation is start out with Bama, get use to having a tune and free tunes for life. Then down the road add a 93 race tune to your tune arsonal by MPT.



Just a near stock 3.7

Steeda make nice tunes, i also have a $200 Evolution Performance (Jon Lund) tune. The best tunes i have are my MPT tunes (93 octane ghost cam and 93 octane Performance). The MPT tune pulls the hardest with a 'big bark' when it shifts into 2nd gear and sometimes a 'chirp' when it shifts into 3rd gear. I have an automatic transmission

Bama if you're stock or have simple things like different tires or a CAI.

Go with MPT once you've gotten the car where you want it to be performance wise like gears, full exhaust, etc.

I went with MPT from the start and never regretted it. With 3.73 gears added to a MPT tune you can run low 13's pretty easy.
