Roush still the way to go for an auto. equipped car?

I have a 2014 GT auto. Always heard Roush had the best automatic tune. Is that still true or has anyone else caught up or exceeded their tune for an automatic?

Lund is up there with them. Depends on what you're trying to pay and for how much of a difference. I'm going to get a Bama tune because I like the tunes for life. But if you're going for the absolute best times I would give Lund a look. Bama is very good as well if you aren't familiar with them check them out.

I heard Lund is more powerful but tend to cause problems. Bama is very good, a little less powerful but for safety reasons. Far safer then the Lund.

I think people expect that a tune is going to come perfect everytime and it just doesn't work like that. Although with any company they try and get it right the first time. Imo unless your ready to put in the effort to data log and work through minor issues you shouldn't be mail order tuning to begin with.

Bama is far from safer than Lund. That's just not true.

I would definitely use Mike Rousch although Lund and AED are two more excellent choices.

1. Every email tuner does "free tunes for life" (for n/a applications) not just bama.
2. Saying that lund is not a safe tune compared to Bama is idiotic and extremely misinforming.
3. Datalogging is easy if you know how to follow instructions and use a computer.
4. Mike Rousch tune for autos = amazingness

Rolldat. I said Lund wasn't safe because many forums were saying that. The last thing I want is to void a warranty and have an issue. I think the issues were something with a number 8 valve? Not sure. I am just trying to get some info on the best yet safe tune. I will look into the rousch tune also. I will be ordering a Cai and tune together. Any info you can give, recommend is greatly appreciated.

I always hear the Roush tune is conservative, compared to companies like Lund. But I do seem to hear that other companies often require data logging and fine tuning. But that's just from reading around on here, you can search tuning questions and find a lot more information.
