BAMA V2 Tune - First impressions

Good Morning!

I've been running the BAMA V1 93 race tune as my daily now for quite a bit, made the call when I heard the v2 was out and figured I'd give it a shot...

Drivability in Houston traffic this morning with the a6 was MUCH better, shift mappings are on point and gone is the dreaded "shift into too low of a gear" issues.

It feels significantly better in terms of smooth powerband all the way to redline, no more touchy throttle like it used to be.

Looking to get some good datalogs this weekend! I'm not a track guy (would probably get laughed off the starting line) but I really enjoy entrance ramp romps, etc. The romps this morning were much better than before

Please let me know if there is any data I can provide. Not looking for (you should go with x or y tuner) but good discussion.

I've had my v2 tunes since January and the performance tune is really nice. I've shift points are good and throttle response is way better. I still haven't loaded the 93 race tune yet but if it's any better than the performance then I should be happy. I'm goin to the track this weekend for the first time since getting the new tunes so should have some results.

Hey guys - Thanks for taking the time to post up your thoughts on the V2's. I'm really happy to hear that you're enjoying them as much as I do! I can't stress it enough that the driveability is hands down one of the best aspects of the V2 (especially in traffic!) OP I would definitely recommend getting a datalog set up as well. Once you're ready to do so simply shoot the Bama Team a call and they can walk you through what's going to be needed and then they'll have some info shot over via email to get you up and running.

Let me know if there's anything else I can help out with in the meantime and enjoy guys!!

Alex

Will do

The tune and 5.0 really work well together to 'cut down the commute' especially when you can find a length of road no one else is on lol

No comment! I'm hoping that if you're stretching her legs that it's going to be on a closed course...and not I95! Happy to hear that your V2 Tunes are cutting down the commute time and at least making it a lot more entertaining!!!

Now that's just downright incredible! It's always been said in a few different places that a tune can improve your fuel consumption but at the end of the day the Tuner and Device is a Performance Part! I'm really happy to hear that it helped though!

Let me know if there's anything else I can help out with in the meantime or if you're to have any other questions!

Enjoy!

Alex

Rizzle - We've been around long enough that we would never need to have a phantom account created to spread publicity like this I just thought it was funny that "Wanyes World" happened to have that name and given my sense of humor I ran with it. At the end of the day regarding the Bama X4 Tuner and V2 Tunes 100% of the feedback can be summarized in this gif below:

ha - Alright I'm done I swear!
