If I'm not mistaken after you buy the tuner SCT will put together free tunes for your car, they just need the specs of any performance parts you added to engine.

I'm not sure which tuner you have, but it should come with a few pre set tunes to start you off with and as you add cams bigger injectors, so on and so forth, SCT will put together free tunes for your car, its been a while since I looked into it, but most companies when you buy their tuner will make new tunes for you to download into your tuner and install into your cars PCM, it should be free, if nothin else call up SCT, or hop on an online tech support of theirs if they have one and ask to be sure.

Well since you bought it used then I don't know. And assuming it works for your car in particular. Is the 150 what SCT said it would cost?

Re: Sct tuner

Thanks for posting up! We get that question a lot. You can purchase tunes directly from our site by using this link

Bama Tune Files(If You're not a Free Tunes for Life Member)

Go there and for $150 you can start with 3 tunes written by our Tuning Specialists. At the same time purchasing that will enroll you in our Free Tunes for Life program, which will allow you to get free upgrades as long as you own that tuner/car. It may seem a little pricey but considering most dyno tunes are $300 for one tune, doing it this was is definitely the cost-effective way to go.

I hope this helps!
Please feel free to PM me directly if you have any questions in the future!
Have a great weekend!

Most reputable shops will be in the $2-300 range. Getting a tune for $150 seems like a good deal, but what happens when you need another tune or you want to switch between different octanes for a long trip? Our $150 enrollment in the Free Tunes for Life Program comes with 3 tunes in any octane you want and free upgrades for life.

Furthermore, all we tune is Mustangs. All-day, everyday. It's the only platform we work on and our Tuning Specialists do nothing but dyno and write tunes for Mustangs 10 hours a day.

Let me save you time and money. Go buy a Sct bama tuner from American Musscle for $ 379.00 plus it comes with free tunes for life. That price includes delivery, done. The best first mod a stang owner can buy is this tuner. I have a 2011 v6 stang and what a big difference the tune makes.

Yes it will. But if something fails and the dealership says its because of the tune, American Musscle stand behind their tune and will take care of the issue. Of course the dealership would have to prove that tune caused the damage to void the warranty. One would have to file a suit and that can take years.

If you do buy a tuner go with a good known company for it. For me, American Musscle is the best one. They provide great customer service and back their products.

I think a Cai and that's about it. I have two years left on my factory three year warranty. I have the bama tuner for my vehicle. If the engine or transmission should fail and the dealership wont cover because they claim it was the bama tuner then I will put American Musscle to the test and see if they do what they claim they said they will do. Fix the issue at no cost to me. I believe in American Musscle would make it right. If my window stops working then that's hard to blame the tune.

I have had my tune for months with zero issues. I believe if there was going to be an issue, it would of occurred by now. The car engine runs the same just a little better performance. I also don't drive my stang like a jack a$$ and drive it like I stole it.

Your a 95 right? You need the 4 bank eliminator chip. $150 for canned tune $250 for actual dyno tunes

I would like to get a CAI as well. That and a set of long tube headers. Just those additional two mods and that's it for me.

Re: Sct tuner

I wanted to jump back in here and answer some of the questions that have popped up.

The first is regarding the OP (tbonestang) and his car. Deadspot brought up that you have a 1995 model. I checked your threads and it does appear as though your Mustang is not compatible with a hand-held tuner. Your Mustang is OBD-I, which is only compatible with the SCT 4-bank eliminator chips:

SCT 4-Bank Eliminator Chip

If you have a hand-held tuner, unfortunately, they are only OBD-II compatible and cannot be used for Ford models made prior to 1996. I apologize for any inconvenience, but I hope thishelps you out.

Also, you stated a couple times, in reference to our tunes, that they were "canned." This is not the case. Our tunes are hand-written by our Tuning Specialists for your specific car and your specific mods. Just because 50% of our customer-base may have the same mods as you, doesn't mean their tune will work on your car. With the different PCMs and engine/transmission combos available for the Mustang, you'll need a tune specifically for your car and your mods.

Also, in regards to 2011 Kona Blues references to the warranty and a failure voiding the warranty. We never recommend putting the car back to stock to get around warranty work to try to hide that the car was tuned, if something happens. If you want to go back to stock for routine maintenance(oil-changes, tire rotations, etc.) and not get hassled for having a CAI or tune, that's not a bad idea. Just don't hide it in the event something happens. The easiest way to figure out if your dealer accepts CAIs and tunes, is to call them. Call them and ask your service-writer whether that stuff will void your engine warranty. If they say yes, just go back to stock for any routine maintenance. If they say no, you're good to go!

I hope this helps, everybody!

Please feel free to PM me directly if you have any questions in the future! Have a great night!

I strongly recommend buying your tuner from American Musscle. They have awesome customer service, great prices and stand behind their products. The thing about not putting the tune back to stock for issues is exactly what I was told when I called AM and asked about warranty issues. The unknown employee told me I shouldn't return my car to stock if there was an issue. Take it to the dealership and let them diagnosis the issue. If the dealership claims the part failed because of the tuner then I was told to call AM and tell them this. AM told me they would make it right by fixing the issue that the dealership wouldn't because of the alleged tune the dealership was claiming.

How can one not think that company is not awesome. AM has my business for my stang needs. I don't know if AM has the cheapest prices for stang parts on the web but their is something to be said about how they treat there customers and stand behind there tunes. Ill pay more for piece of mind knowing AM is not going to leave me high and dry.

Question for Chris from AM or anybody. Just curious but besides # 8 cylinder which is a thing of the past what other issues are stang owners having with their engine or transmissions that are coning to AM because the dealership wont fix. If any that you know of.

Re: Sct tuner

Why revert back to original setup for work at the dealer ships? Dealerships can tell (if they look), that it has been reprogramed. They dont know what has changed, but would expect the worst. If your program works, why mess with it and try to pull something over the dealers. I think you will be better to leave it alone.
