Exclamation Bama Tune - Air/fuel 18/1

I installed the Bama Race Tune on my '14 GT.
At Idle, it runs so rich, that you have to roll the windows down to breath. is anyone else having this issue??

This sounds odd. You shouldn't be running that lean. Are you sure you're not just smelling the lack of cats that you have? I know my car definitely doesn't smell that great.

We can definitely look into this for you and figure out exactly what's going on. Shoot me a PM with your order number included and I'll have our head tuning specialist reach out to you directly and make any necessary adjustments!

I look forward to speaking with you!

-Dan

1.) AFR 18 at wot is running at an explosive level

2.) You don't have cats so you're car from here on out will try to kill you with fumes so that gas you're smelling is your car trying to poison you

Did you just come up with that number or do you actually have a Wideband monitering it? Chances are if you actually have an 18:1 A/F ratio your motor will be gone already. If you are running without cats it could be that you are smelling. You probably are running rich, but only running slightly rich will make the smell so its most likely not as bad as you think.

Call BAMA and ask them to do some Datalogging, there is only so much they can do with a tune without you actually sending them in information of what your car is doing.

I have a 2014 Premium Track Pack. It has a factory A/F Meter..
Bama has gotten in touch with me, hopefully they will figure it out

We'll definitely figure it out quickly! I made sure that the Bama team contacted you right away so that we can make sure this is taken care of. Continue to work closely with Bama and they'll make sure you're in good hands!

Hang in there, we'll have you enjoying your tune in no time!

No cats and a ghost tune gets pretty stinky. Normal.
