Mass air flow could be or tps but doubt it could be the tune they set never had that before

I kept getting mad at them saying they never stated this was a problem and they offered me money but i told them i want it fixed and i got a call from mike at bamma and he had me do 2 data logs and he fixed the issue after 2 tries. So it CAN BE FIXED just nag them about it!

I can't believe one would have to nag AM on anything. AM prides themselves as providing top notch customer service. :)

Ortiz0212,

I'm sorry you're experiencing a small surge, usually the PCM is able to adjust after a decent amount of driving. It's easy to get a slight surge with LT headers on the v6 Mustangs, but we have been able to straighten that out in the past.

I would love to get you in direct contact with our lead tuner Mike Wilson. If anyone is able to to fix your surging issue, it's him! Send me a PM with your order number and I'll get all the info over to him that he needs. Then he'll give you a call with some tune adjustments or possibly request a datalog. Either way, I'm confident he'll have everything resolved in no time!

Are we sure this cant be solved by letting you car learn its idle? If your loading a new tune you need to let your car idle for at least 5 min with the air off and 5 with it on. That will let you car properly learn it's idle with the headers. Maybe you have tried this but if your not letting your car learn idle then your going to have issues

Ortiz0212,

You should have some adjusted tunes in your email inbox right now! Post back and let me know how they worked out for you when you get a chance.

Yes of course! Just me your order number and I'll get your info over to Mike right away. Your tune should be especially easy since the Street and Performance tune run perfectly smooth already.

I'll look forward to your PM!

Charlie_santos,

Mike has all of your info now and he's going to diagnose your Hybrid tune first thing Monday morning. You can expect a call from him with an adjusted Hybrid tune by Monday afternoon.

Give me a shout if there's anything further I can do to assist either of you!
