The tune I used is the canned tune based on all the questions I answered for their tune - i.e., stock w/ Roush mufflers. Dan mentioned datalogging to see if there's any areas they could adjust in the tune. I could just take it in to a local place and get it tuned but that would void the Bama warranty coverage. On the other hand, like most people I don't have tons of extra time in my day to dedicate specifically to this so getting it done will take longer than I want it to.

So, a pretty common setup you have there. AM is always pushing this 19-question stuff as better than a straight canned/box/strategy tune. It's not a canned tune, it's specifically optimized for you based upon your answers to the 19 questions, so go the claims. It's not a dyno day but, it still should be better than a box tune. It is big on claims and low on delivered performance, from what you're describing here.

I have a straight canned tune. The only thing that varies here is the same thing that varies on the stock tune, namely calibrations for the region and VIN.

Finally found a guy to do it. Sooooo glad I got this done. If you hate drone this definitely not the mod for u. I've also got SLP loudmouths so no that didn't help with the drone. But it sounds amazing now. Definitely worth the $70 for me.

Ive tried to get a hold of you to get the ball rolling on this datalog thing, as I am new to it. The thought has crossed my mind to just go ahead and throw on my other parts (302 intake and CAI) but that would open up the variables even more and make it more difficult to pin down what could be tweaked with the tune.
Yikes! That's my mistake. Yeah, something is definitely not right there. You should be seeing much larger gains. Most people are picking up 20+ RWHP and 20+ RWTQ from just a tune alone. I know for a fact I did on my 2011 GT with a Bama custom tune.

We can absolutely datalog with you and get to the bottom of this. Please shoot me a PM with your order number included and I'll have a Bama tuning specialist reach out to you directly. We'll have you enjoying your tune in no time! Hang in there.

-Dan
