So when you get your tune from BAMA do you have to ask for the cam tune specifically or is ur race tune automatically set up like that? Cuz i don't remember my race tune sounding lopey. But that would be ***** sick to have that sound with no cam. Does a cam tune hurt or help ur performance? Or not affect it at all?

Bama does do it...

You have to call and ask them for it.

Not included as part of their normal tunes... Separate tune.

Doesn't impact performance one way or the other over the base 93 r tune from what I've read.

Awesome I'm gonna have to give them a call first thing Monday! Is it included in the free tunes for or do you have to pay extra for it? Sorry about all the questions man. Lol.

Tune will void your warranty unless you get one from the dealer and they are pretty weak.

OK.....Hers my opinion.Go with Bama for sure.Yes you will notice diff. immediately.If you are auto you will notice major change in your shifting.They can increase line pressure and shift points..Makes firm ,fast and sporty shifting.As for tune.I would just load the race tune and use it year around.If you are just doing some bolt on mods or have and going to do more or not Bama is fine.If you get deep into serious mods and power then go to a good shop and have it tuned with dyno shop.The Cam tune is for manual only and NO do not run it with cats.Bad move.If you want to hear how sweet it sounds listen to my car on youtube. Type in.... " 2012 gt back n a stang " Type just like that and turn up your speakers. It sounded really good with my setup. The HP gains come solely from the addition of O/R X-Pipe as for that tune.The cam tune just varies the timing of the intake/exhaust valving to give the exact and perfect sound of a cammed motor.The downside is you will exp. idle issue,with AC on and off.Alot of idling issues.At times it will do fine but will give you some issues.Your gas mileage will go south big time.Especially when idle or around town driving.I never have been one to give a sh*t about gas mileage when it comes to performance cars though.I stay broke either way. Get you a tune man and wake up that car.Throttle response sucks stock.Overall you will enjoy.If you have a isssue bama can tweak and send you another tune.If you are real concerned you can datalog the tune you run using Livelink and a laptop.Send to Bama to look at.But I say you will be happy and best money you may spend.

Even if they do start offering it.I just dont see you keeping it installed.Very few do.It's just not worth it.And has some aggravations for sure.Only way to learn what I am telling you is put all this work in and install it.Then see what you think.

Man you know thats not gonna work as for how you ask this.I mean....Some are looking and saying damn Bama tunes are the fastest. Thats like hey lets push it on out to 7700-7800 and hot lap it.If it blows Bama will fix it.nah! Thay do have warranty on #8 problems.but I am sure it's looked pretty close to make sure they are not being held hostage for Driver error or something driver may have or may forgot. I got a friend as we speak that # 8 went bad and he has submitted claim but who knows man. I know the lund tune in general is good but I personally would not run his unless I was using a S/C and I still would just save to try b/c I for sure would go to fastlane to get mit tuned.

So i have been reading about the bama tune since march, when i got the 13 5.0, the question would.be which tuner, from the 4 available is best for the car, as in the actual machines, there is the diablo, the sct, the wireless and the sf3.

if I remember right, with this engine when they would tune and mess with some of the timing, it could possibly cause the #8 cylinder to fail.

There were a few reports of this happening. When i got my tuner from them about a year ago, and looked into the issue, the reports seem scattered and proof that the tunes caused the cylinder to fail were inconclusive.

It is just nice for Bama/AM to say they will warranty it. Chances are probably beyond slim it will happen, just that they cover if it does.

**Correct me anyone if I am wrong**

i belive the number 8 cylinder doesnt have a cooling passage close enough to it like the other side of the motor. so because of this, that cylinder will get a little warmer. this can domino effect into detonation when you add a tune to the equation because the more agressive timing etc.

this was scaring people from tuning there cars. so the tuners, like bama began warranting there tunes to reinstall confidence in the consumers.

This is somewhat correct, but there are any number of factors, heat being the largest. Also, many tuners in the beginning of tuning the 5.0's were trying to add too much timing, or desensitizing the knock sensors, or both. Either of these are catastrophic to the motor and will cause failure from detonation.

Also according to Shaun at AED, fords stock tune would cause the coyote to run lean at wot and high rpms, and they did this to keep the torque up at higher rpms. This has since supposedly been fixed by many many tuners as well as ford, and again according to Shaun, Bama is one of 20+ tuners that have implemented this AFR fix.

At the end of the day, if the motor is going to fail then it will do so, and when that time comes you can either look to every parts manufacturer and distributor to place blame on, or you can realize that you as the consumer purchased these parts knowing full well that every time you mod it is a little bit of a gamble, and take responsibility for your own actions.

does anyone know if the bama tune prompts you to back up your stock tune just in case? Or even has the option to back up your stock tune?

I don't think any tune prompts you to return to stock, but the tuner manufacturer recommends returning to stock before updating the handheld device just to ensure that you will not lose the stock tune and to prevent you from having to get vehicle reflashed by the dealer in the event you lose stock tune. The SCT automatically saves stock tune when you download an aftermarket tune

OK, I will just have to see what you mean when I get it in hand. I have the SCT on the way, and my tunes have already been sent in, just waiting for them to be written...

Where do you download the tune from? When it comes it, do I hook it up the computer and download from there? Im not following 100%.

Ah I'm sorry I thought you were asking if it prompts you to return to save the stock tune when you are downloading the tunes into your car. Loading custom tunes is very easy. Make sure you install the device software first. Then when you get your custom tunes via email, download them and save to your computer. From there you will plug your tuner into your computer and open the device software. There will be an option to load custom tunes. Click on that then search for the saved file on your computer and load that into one of the three slots you have for custom tunes. After the tunes are loaded onto the tuner then take tuner to car and plug in OBDII port and follow commands on tuner. After install is complete, stock tune will automatically be saved on device. I very highly recommend backing up that file on your computer.
