BAMA Tune and 1/4 mile run questions?

OK, I am getting my suspension done Friday and thinking of heading to local strip for first time over the weekend. There is a 1/4 mile 2 hours away and an 1/8 mile 20 minutes away so not sure which I will do. My power mods are below and I am adding Eibach Pro Damper shocks/ struts, Sportline springs, BMR adj. panhard, BMR adj. UCA and BMR LCA installed. Here are my three questions?

1. Should I run BAMA race 93, Hybrid 93 or street 93. Would it depend on 1/4 or 1/8 mile?

2. Based on what I have done what would be a good time for each to expect?

3. Any advice for new strip guy?

I've never seen a Bama tuned car run a good time except their shop cars so run whatever toots your fancy because it won't matter. One reason is because you run a manual they don't have the ability to turn off torque management. Something I'm sure you didn't know.

Don't expect anything more than a mid 12.xx pass depending on what tires you're running.

Here are my runs with the Bama tunes on M/T ET Streets. The first two are on motor and the last was with a 100 shot. Additional mods are: Full Bassani exhaust, aluminum d/s, Barton 2 post bracket, Whiteline insert, adj. UCA, billet LCA, front sway bar and end links removed, Strano adj. rear sway bar, Airaid CAI, and bigs and littles. Needless to say I expected much better, especially on the bottle.

I'll start out by saying, I'm not tuned by Bama. now that, that's out of the way, lol come on man really? can you have that much hate towards Bama? it seems petty quite honestly, are they as good as someone like AED, Revolution, etc. etc? no they aren't, no they don't tune the cam timing, or mess with the torque management, but you sound silly saying they don't have fast cars running around with their tunes smh

Look into another tune.
Bama is nothing more than a glorified canned tune.

My Bama tunes are well over a year old. I know they supposedly tweak their tunes periodically to try and find more power, but I never bothered to update mine. I bought the SCT Pro Racer Package and intend to write my own tunes once I find the time to.

Grabber Blue5.0, I wasn't aware that the manual cars don't have the option to turn off torque management. How much of a negative effect does this have? Is turing off the TC and Adv. Trac the only option?

i suggest you go with a different tune as well, i had bama for a little bit along with various modifications. After doing a dyno pull to see where I was at, I found my car to be severely underpowered and running dangerously lean, this also explained why my quarter mile times were disappointing as well. I booked an appointment with my local dyno tuners soon after that dyno pull and got the proper power out of my car with a night and day difference in drivability, idle and how smooth my power band is now. you will get the best bang for your buck if you get your car dyno tuned, but if you are unwilling to do that do to cost or unavailability in your area you could try AED or Lund. I personally don't have any experience with them but I have heard good things about them.

I just bought an SCT tunner from AM (BAMA). Does anyone who says bama turns are slower in the 1/4 have proof? Do you have a few runs with Bama then with your better tune? From my understanding Bama keeps there tunes safe therefor yes you will see a slight loss in power but to call it slow thats a bold statement. Whats SLOW to you guys? .010,.030 differents in E/T.

Im looking for the proof thats all. I know nothing about the tunes so i need supporting facts. I had a "can" tune on my lightning and when i got it dyno tuned it wasnt to much different like everyone was saying. Swanson performance tuned my lightning. Spent the 400$ and drove off and was like uuuuuuummmm cool. I wasent like OMG this is a different beast. So proof is what im looking for. Anyone with lund is going to say its the best etc etc. as far as i know my Borla ATAK is the best because its what i have. PROOF!!!!!! i WANT IT, WE WANT IT. its all anyone really wants.

I have a full blown dyno tune, built motor nitrous coyote. my car is a roll car,
Back when it was stock I tried bama, breenspeed, and lund,
Bama is a bunch of dumb dumbs they do not know there way around a 5.0 what so ever.
The tune was lean as can be

I have proof that my BAMA and Steeda Tune for the Steeda CAI on an otherwise stock 2012 GT Auto was slower in the 1/4 mile -vs- a plain 91P BAMA Tune for the stock airbox by .20 seconds and 2mph. This reinforced my dislike for CAI's.

My previous experience is why on my 2014 GT Auto, I decided to get the Ford Racing Tune with GT500 axlebacks and K/N filter, as I have no other future mods planned for the engine. I'm also happy to report that my fuel mileage increased by 2 mpg, something neither the BAMA or Steeda Tune provided in my 2012.

Ok well im going to pat myself on the back for wasting $400 on a SCT BAMA "dumb dumb" tune. I wouldn't think they are the best just due to the hundreds of thousands of tunes that fly out of there shop but to consider them "unsafe, slow" seems crazy do to the hundred of thousands of tunes flying out of there shop. seems like they wouldn't be as big as they are if they sucked as bad as you say. Then again McDonalds sales dog s%$ and people eat it up.

Its not a BAMA car yet. But just because you said it was junk im going to just give it away. One mans junk is another mans treasure. Maybe all the good i read about them was just actors getting paid. Searching for the real deal as we speak. Anyone want an SCT for free just PM me but be advised its a dumb dumb tune.

i believe anywhere from 12-12.5 AFR you are doing pretty good(anybody correct me if i'm wrong). my car is running 12.4 AFR throughout the power band now. i believe 13 at wide open throttle you are within the acceptable range. again anybody correct me if i'm wrong on that.

A good tuner can turn it off but it's something they've never been able to figure out. It makes a big difference especially at the track.

Don't get all butt hurt. If you're happy then that's all that counts. But someday you'll want more and will move on like many others have.

to the point of tunes. surely someone did three runs on a BAMA tune. then in the same day switched to Steeda or MPT or Lund and did 3 runs. please past there results. All this other stuff is gibberish. same mod. same day lets see. i would be willing to do if any company wants to test. but i don't see anyone jumping at the chance or any facts here?

My automatic with bama 93r tune only ran 12.60s@113 mph da around 300'. I thought it wasn't bad. Not the greatest but not bad for a safe tune. It ran 12.90s without the tune in similar air.

Yeah no kidding, that is terrible for a full exhaust car on the n/a passes. I'm not an unusual case but, you can see in sig I'm over 115 on full factory exhaust with GT500s, factory airbox, full weight premium...with torque management full on. Most full exhaust cars I see are trapping high teens.

My 91 octane canned tune with a warranty seems to be doing better than most Bama stuff I see, even their 93R.

The super weak nitrous hit suggests a serious problem with nitrous delivery or the tune.

Who did the nitrous tune? What shot? How much timing was pulled?

My power mods are below and I am adding Eibach Pro Damper shocks/ struts, Sportline springs, BMR adj. panhard, BMR adj. UCA and BMR LCA installed. Here are my three questions?

1. Should I run BAMA race 93, Hybrid 93 or street 93. Would it depend on 1/4 or 1/8 mile?

2. Based on what I have done what would be a good time for each to expect?

3. Any advice for new strip guy?
Awesome! You're going to have a blast. The track is a lot of fun! I go at least once a month, usually more!

1. I would run the Bama 93 Race tune. That will net the largest gains and will be perfect for drag racing!

2. You should definitely be low 12's-high 11's if you can get off the line! A radial would be key for your 60ft time. If you're just running street tires you may have some spinning issues.

3. Just remember to have fun! You're going to be hooked after your first pass. I remember not wanting to leave! Next mod I would recommend a set of Race Stars.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions at all.

Don't expect anything more than a mid 12.xx pass depending on what tires you're running.
The above statement is not true. Yes, all of our shop cars have went pretty fast for their modifications. We've been 10's with a few different shop cars and 11's with just about all of them. They're obviously all tuned by Bama.

However, there is a ton of really happy customers out there that are running fast times. I've seen countless 11-Second time slips out of a Bama tuned 11+ Coyote. I personally ran 11.87@119 (along with countless 11.9 passes) with bolt-ons and a Bama tune in my manual 2011 GT (Stock clutch and trans).

Hope this is clears things up.

Sorry Dan but if you think a 11.87 pass is fast you're sorely mistaken.

Hope this clears things up.
