Just curious has anyone ever noticed a problem shifting in an automatic after installing the custom tune? I'm running the 93 octane tune that bama performance sent me and it seems if I don't get into the gas enough or get to hard into it bogs down and doesn't want to go. Or does it just prefer you to give a medium amount have throttle to it?

I've seen this posted quite a bit. I don't own an automatic myself. But it's just your car adjusting to the tune. By shifting more aggressively. It wants you to drive it harder. If you baby it it's going to bog.

My automatic changed quite a bit from the stock tune to the 93 octane street tune. I've yet to try the performance or race tunes. My car holds on that first gear a little longer and won't shift unless I put some attitude into it. After that you can feel the difference in power and through the other gears is smooth. It sounds better though than the stock tune. If I revved the engine in stock the car would back fire. As soon as I uploaded the street tune that went away.

This is pretty normal, like these guys said the car wants to be driven with a little more attitude to take full advantage of the firmer shift points! That should only occur on the Race tune, the Street and Performance tune should be a little less aggressive.

Either way, we can look into this for you and soften up the shifts a bit. Just give the Bama team a call and they'll get you squared away! Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764!

It also seems to bog down when it's wot. I was pulling of an exit onto hwy the other day and floored it to get around a car In front of me and to keep a tractor trailer from running me over from behind and it just revved up high rpms and would nt shift for some odd reason

That does sound odd. We can definitely look into your tune and re write everything for you, in just a few minutes! We send out thousands of tunes and build them all from the ground up for your PCM code and your mods. They're not just "canned" tunes, they're built custom by our team, so every once in a while it's possible we mess one up! We'll definitely get it straightened out for you, though if this is the case! Give one of our Bama Tuning Specialists a call and they'll work with you to figure out exactly what's going on.

Called bama and they sent me a new 93 octane tune and just tested it out and it's so much better!! I can really feel the power now. Got me all excited like a little kid in a toy store.
