Bama tune ?

Bama Tune question for the 2015 GT 6 speed ... I hear it smooths the low end out making the car drive much nicer to drive around town with a 6 speed .. Can I do the Bama tune without mods like a air box or cat back and get any extra power or is it a waste of money for a stock 5.0 .. I will be going the cat back and air box down the road at some point but not just now ..
Thanks Lee ..

Yes, you can get the Tune with no other mods to get extra power. It'll wake up your engine a little bit by putting some unused power to use!

I ran a tune only for about 1.5 years and the smiles per gallon never went away, haha.

I called Bama about this ... Yes more HP .. Tuner comes with two maps that really wake the car up without even having any mods ... As you add mods they send you updated Maps to work with your new Mods ... Tuner is next on my Mod list !!

Most of the power gains being advertised are in the Tune only. The CAI that people spend $300+ on are worth 5-10hp at most, and add (IMO) undesirable induction sucking noises.

I didn't go with the CAI .. I just put in a K&N filter ...

Believe it or not the motor felt stronger just adding the K&N ..

Hey Smokin - Good questions here and it's looking like you got some solid help in here! I'm really excited to hear what you have to say about the Bama X4 Tuner for your 2015!

Let me know if you're to have any questions in the meantime and once you put a few miles on the car shoot Bama a call so they can get a datalog set up and dial in your tune further!

Alex

Hey Lion I would definitely recommended checking out the Bama X4 Tuner! These guys know how to make power and I can't say nice enough things about how their tunes make the driveabiltiy on the 2015 even that much better! I swear it drives better than stock not to mention the modest bump in performance as well!

If anyone has any other questions please don't hesitate to let me know and I'm here to help!

Would love to hear your feedback on the tune, I am giddy about getting my 15 Mustang here shortly.

How much HP & Torque does the Tune add?

My only complaint with bama is I emailed them they opened a ticked and I never heard from them again it's been a week. I emailed Lund performance and Jon Lund responded to me the very next day. So I have a car I would like to datalog but bama isn't putting any effort in.

Feel free to let me know if you're to have any questions about the Bama X4 Tuner! It's definitely a must have mod if you're looking to add a nice bump in performance right out of the gate! We do offer a Forums Discount code as well but this is for members that are over 50 posts.

Hey Jacob,

Sorry about the delay on their end but I just took a look and wanted to see if this was the ticket that was submitted at 11pm last Thursday? If so I'm happy to get them to fast track this but I know with the weather starting to get warmer everyone's getting their cars out are and getting them fine tuned!

Please either let me know here or shoot me a PM and I'll make sure that they get on this for you!

Alex

wjlowe111 - The Bama X4 Tuner costs $399.99 shipped to your doorstep and once you're to purchase it you're instantly enrolled in their Free Tunes For Life Program. This means that if you're to modify your Mustang any in any way with parts that would require a revision they'll create a new tune for you and then have it simply emailed over. Once you have it on your end you would pull the new tunes and you're good to go!

Please let me know if you're to have any other questions at all or shoot me a Private message and I'm here to help!

Just baselined the car last week absolutely dead bone stock and here is what it did....



I just ordered the X4 yesterday and I'll strap it back down as soon as the tuner gets here. No other mods, just the tune and I'll see what it does.

Not bad! Can you let me know once you get the tuner? I'd love to get your feedback on the tunes and then have you get a datalog sent over to Bama after you have a few miles put on the tune. Definitely interested to see what you'll be making!

If anyone has any other questions don't hesitate to let me know and I'm here to help!

Absolutely.

I plan on doing at least 6 pulls with it. 2 without any tuning again so the run conditions are the same and not thrown off by atmospherics, 2 on the performance tune and 2 on the race tune.


Normally I'd do my own tuning, but I'm not familiar enough with this motor to jump on it yet.

Right now, no. I have ZERO experience on this motor. Now, LS's and diesel with EFILive I do, but I have never touched one of these 5.0's as far as tuning. Eventually I start playing with this myself after I do a bunch of datalogging to see what "normal" looks like, but for now I'm leaving it to the folks at Bama.

Looks like the tuner should be here on Monday. I'll get it loaded up and strap the car back down on Weds or Thurs and see what it does with no other mods. After that I'll start playing with the car a bit....gotta get the turbos done on the truck first before I start ripping into this thing.

What I'll be most happy with is if it addresses that annoying surge at ~2800 RPM's. Not sure if it's a cam timing thing or a torque management table, but that spot in the RPM's is annoying.

Annnnd, sending this thing back. First and last time I'll deal with American Muscle / Bama Tuning folks.


First, the package arrives....it's got my name on the shipping label, open the box and it's someone else's tuner.


Call them up, talk to Justin. Explained the situation. Send me the correct files for my car and update the serial in the system. About half an hour later I get an email. Still has the wrong tune files.


I call back, ask to speak to Justin. He left for the day.


I talk to Van, again explain the situation. I have him verify my info so we get the right files. Files show up, I go to load them on the X4, and it won't show the 93 octane tune, only a 91 tune.


Okay, let's make sure this is all up to date, which it says it is "No Updates Available". Cool, let's see if it loads.


Go out to the car, hook everything up, keep getting an error, 110AD. Call back again, no idea who it was and didn't care at this point. Explained what was going on, gave them the code, they tell me it's SCT's problem and to call them.


At this point, I told them never mind, just process this thing for a return. I'll be calling Brenspeed and Lund in the morning.


First purchase / last purchase.

Figured I'd give SCT a chance to make it right.....

I've been on hold for 10 mins now. I've moved from que position 22 to 19.

This is why I normally do my own tuning.

31 minutes....position 15. Phones ready to tap out. lol

53 minutes....position 9. I don't spend this much time on the phone in a month.


1:12.....position 7. Catchy tune they have........I'll have it burned into my head for a year.


1:37....position 4. Ready to go slap, choke, punch on a kitten.


1:57.....position 1. Watch me get some dude in India.

Ran into a similar issue...SCT ended up remoting into my laptop and loaded everything they needed to for the update and everything has been perfect for the last week. Just sponging some data logging and get the tune adjusted and dialed in.

Sorry to hear about your experience up to know, but AM and Bama are solid people from experiences

SilverS550, are you still alive? I have a feeling you were hung up on after a 2 hour wait.
