Question about Bama nitrous tune

I just recently installed a nitrous kit on my ride. And got a 100 shot nitrous tune from Bama. My question is, can I run this tune on my car at all times or is that not a good idea. Just don't like the thought of having to change tunes when I fell like running nitrous. Sometimes it's spur of the moment when I want to spray the car. The nitrous tune seems to run a lot smother and way more quite than the 93 race tune does. But the no2 tune doesn't seem to have the power of the race tune any input?

Yes you can run it all the time. You will be down on power bc they pull timming for a nitrous tune. Your brave running a bama tune for spray. Start saving for a new motor.

For nitrous if you are going to run an email tune (not entirely recommended) you are going to want to do a ton of datalogging to get the tune perfect. Right now they tuned your car based off what a 100 shot "should" do, not necessarily what it is actually doing with your car. I'd recommend getting a tune for the nitrous as well as a tune for without the nitrous, and switch between them when you plan to use it.

Yes, you can run your Nitrous tune all the time. Like listed in this thread, you will be down power because of the timing we're pulling for the Nitrous. This is the safest way to insure that you don't have any issues. If you'd like us to datalog with you, we can absolutely do that! Just hit up the Bama team directly and we'll make sure your tune is in good shape. You can reach the Bama team at the contact information below in my signature!

How are you enjoying the Nitrous so far?

Awesome! I'm glad to hear you're really enjoying your Bama custom tune. How does the car run with the 125 shot? Like listed above, we would be happy to datalog with you. Just hit up the Bama team and we'll get you all squared away to make sure your tune is dialed in!

Thanks for your feedback!

-Dan

I have a Bama nitrous tune and while I feel it is a bit on the conservative side, I will say that Bama worked very hard with me to get rid of an extreme case of popping and backfiring during deceleration. Are my tunes perfect, probably not, but they aren't bad either. BTW, my car made 519 rwhp and 551 rwtq on a 100 shot with the Bama nitrous tune.

Thanks for your feedback! I'm glad to hear that we were able to work hard with you and make sure all of your issues were resolved. I see that you think the tune may not be perfect. We can definitely look into this for you and see if there is any further adjustments that can be made! With just a few datalogs we can make sure that your tune is perfect.

Those are some really impressive power numbers. Did you ever get a chance to run her at the track?

Thanks for your business and loyalty. We really appreciate it!

-Dan

Thank you sir. I haven't taken the car to the track yet, but plan to this summer. I am now on my next round of mods, which include a UPR Pro Street adjustable UCA, spherical differential bushing, sway bar relocate kit and bigs and littles with 28X12.5X15 ET Streets.

I will definitely be in touch with your guys soon to have them review a couple of logs and make changes for my drag wheels. What A/F ratios do your Tuning Specialists like to see with a 91 octane race tune and 100 shot nitrous tune? My factory wideband reads 10.9 - 11.1 at WOT on the Nitrous tune. BTW, this is what I meant when I said that the tune wasn't perfect. I feel that the A/F is richer than necessary with the nitrous tune. What are your thoughts on this?
