I want to buy a tuner.

I am in the market to purchase a tuner for my car. I have the 2007 Roush 427r. I know that I will be asked for all the mods made to the car but I am not sure if I can answer all of them correctly. Got an easy way to figure all of this out? Should I just take the time to look at all the parts on the car?

Would a tuner be an upgrade for me or more of a hassle? Heard some horror stories about them and I am not the most mechanically inclined (yet) Im afraid I wont know what to do if something seriously goes wrong. If someone could possibly point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Being that is a 427R, I think Roush recalibrated it with their tune when all of the other work was done( supercharger, etc.) a hand held tuner would probably do you no good( could even hurt performance) if you are looking for more power, I would suggest finding a good shop that could dyno tune it while possibly trying different pulleys and such.

Is the 427 supercharged? Cause it's not a 427 and the ones I looked at didn't even have 427hp

Every 427r I have ever seen was supercharged and best I can recall had in the neighborhood of 435 hp. If I remember correctly, they also made a 428r one year.

Yeah you can tune them, they had 427 flywheel hp hence the name. They had a better tune from rousch but a dyno tune and a smaller pulley would get more umph outta it.

One looked at must have been an older one like 07', says it has the Roushcharger but only 415hp.

I don't think I would either. Seems like it would already be tuned about to the limit by Roush.

It's got to be tuned considering it's blown but I'd guess far from the limit. You could probably do a tune that's more aggressive, and you'll need a tuner for that anyway.

There is a spot a little east of me that I will take it to and have it professionally done.

Alloy427r,

For every Bama Tune we ask you 19 questions about your specific Mustang, including your unique mods and style of driving. This info helps us write custom tunes from the ground-up for your Mustang's mods that will give you the most horsepower that we can safely deliver. We're also constantly developing our tunes! Between our 14 different Project Mustangs and tons of street/track and dyno testing (on our in-house Dynojet 224xLC), we're looking for any minor tweaks to be made that can benefit you guys. We're also part of Fords Technology Transfer Program & Work very closely with Ford to insure that all of our tunes are perfect!

I'm confident you'll be very happy with the gains from a Bama tune. I can definitely give you a realistic power gain estimate, What done to your Roush?

- Dan
