AM Expert Zach’s 2014 GT/CS Bama Tune Results! – AmericanMuscle.com!


Hey Guys!

One of our Mustang Experts Zach joined us in the shop to test out some new mods on his beautiful 2013 GT California Special. He was looking for some power and throttle response and wanted to take full advantage of running premium fuel. Zach and Justin went ahead and installed the C&L Street Cold Air Intake w/ 95mm MAF & X4 Tuner and the results were great. Not only did it pick up some serious horsepower on the dyno, but they went for a road test to break down the difference felt out on the street!

The results?

Zach was thrilled to see his C/S go from:

- Stock 93 Octane Dyno Results: 369 RWHP and 372 RWTQ

- C&L Intake and Bama V2 Tune Dyno Results: 401 RWHP and 398 RWTQ


That made for a peak gain of +32 horsepower and +26 torque. The gains throughout the curve were as high as 28 ft. lbs. of torque! Those are crazy gains from just an intake and tune, keep in mind that he is still running the stock catalytic converters. Even more important than the power; according to Zach, "the driveability is even better than stock"! I had a chance to talk to him myself and he is still raving about how well it drives!

Make sure to check out more about this build: AM Expert Zach's 2013 Mustang GT Build!

If anyone has any questions, feel free to reach out!

That's not true at all! Intakes do nothing. *sarcasm*
Good numbers. Car looks good too.

Nobody ever talks about data logging here or how to do it. My current tune is not as good as the last round, AFR is like a roller-coaster at the bottom and mid range according to my last dyno.

Would've been around the same numbers with the stock intake. 99.9% of those gains were most likely from the tune.

The increase came from the tune, not the intake.

Yep.



Dyno numbers are really not worth much. Let us know what it runs at the track and then report back.

Too many variables at the track. Temp, air density, humidity, etc, etc, etc. There will always be an excuse.

Aed has some pretty good vids on YouTube regarding logging.

Wrong. Trap speed is an excellet indicator how much power the car is making.

I want to get my AFR cleaned up on the bottom and midrange. I could play around with data logging and emails or I could just go locally and get it done properly the first time.

Hey Comp,

Datalogging is a very common topic across all forums, and the Bama Performance Team absolutely recommends datalogging to all of their customers. The tune that the Bama team sends you is a great tune that is built on the dyno, on the street, and at the track. That being said, all cars are different so datalogging can greatly help in getting the car completely dialed in. In most cases, there isn't many adjustments to make as the original tune is solid.

If you are Bama tuned, I can definitely get you in contact with Paul and the Bama team to datalog your Mustang. Bama also has instructions on how to datalog HERE.

Please let me know if you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a PM at anytime!

Hey Roll,

The tune does make up a lot of the power that you are seeing but an intake does indeed have its benefits. The intake provides you with a larger, freeflowing air filter and air intake tube compared to the stock airbox. Not to mention, it also looks great under the hood and you do pick up a sound benefit!

Grabber,

You are completely correct, there is much more to a tune then just power. However, these gains are still awesome to see as we compared them back to back.

Zach definitely plans on hitting the track as soon as the weather breaks and I'll be sure to keep everyone updated!

Hope this helps and if anyone has any questions, feel free to reach out.

-Will

You guys have the means to run your production tune and dyno, then add various intakes with corresponding tune and red no to prove the value of your intakes for sale on your site. I do realize that the naysayers at that point will blame it then on the hood being open, so that will be something to consider, then it would probably be blamed on going more aggressive on the timing. Either way, it would be cool to see something like that done.

How much better can one expect to get from just having the SCT tune and going to the V2 tune , I dynoed at 388/376 with just the SCT tune and cat back MBRP race exhaust and stock air box and stock filter

Hey SS,

Those are some great numbers!

Although we have never Done testing comparing the V2 tune to a stock SCT tune, I could definitely see an increase of 5-10 horsepower along with completely transforming the throttle response, increasing fuel economy, etc.

You will not be disappointed!

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions.

-WIll
