Hey guys sry if i am asking a stupid question but i am new to the 5.0 and i was wondering what this ghost tune is? What it requires?if its bad car the car and where i can get it? Thanks guys
Hey are those the stock rims just plasti dipped? Doing that next they look good...I averaged 15 on it driving city streets the few days I ran it...
9mpg my ass.
you can get it for real, they make loping cams for the 5.0 just isn't going to be a few hundred to get. I promise they will run far better than the tune does. The tune runs kinda funny if your in a low enough RPM range it tries to start the lope while in gear and driving and it makes the car bounce and shudder.My ass? Was joking relax there buddy lol I personally love the sound but wish it could be real. Love the old school thump so calm your jets

performance gains I am not sure. I have not researched them that far. Mainly because if I do that I without a doubt void any chance of a warranty on my car. My dealer is pretty cool but they said no to changing the cams. I don't blame them honestly.Ya I'm waiting til it gets warmer to do mine but they look sick plasti dipped . And do they really making loping cams that's awesome prob 2k at least installed lol is there performance gains from that and same negative effect on mpg ?
it shouldn't affect mpg as the cams are just causing the cylinders to fire in a different pattern and cause the lope. Unlike the tune that is dumping unburnt gas and messing with the timing tables to cause the pretend lope. That is why Bama doesn't offer it for cars with cats as it dumps a lot of unburnt fuel down the exhaust and could damage stock cats.
I say could as it may not, but there is a chance. I think a few of the other places will write the tunes if you have cats.
Any kind of aftermarket camshaft that causes an engine to naturally lope at idle, will impair gas mileage to an extent. The reason for "lope" is the intake and exhaust valves temporarily being opened at the same time. This isn't efficient at low RPM's and results in a lower dynamic compression. However, if the same pattern continues at higher RPM's, the extra valve overlap becomes efficient for making power, since intake velocity is increased at high RPM's.Il look into it as well power of google when I'm home later

I have had a Jon Lund 93 octane Ghost Cam tune on my '11 GT for about a year now. While the gas mileage impact can definitely be felt, my car is not a dd, and if I want gas mileage on a particular day, the Stang is likely not what I will be driving.
That said, I have not experienced any of the bounce and shudder described above. It has been amazing how docile and tractable this tune is at low rpms.
PS- I still get close to 20mpg at hwy speeds w/the Ghost Cam Tune. Obviously less around town or with my foot in it (duh).
