    I don't understand the point you are trying to make, or what you consider a "crock of crap" as you put it.

    I agree with that statement, so what's the problem?

    Just a few weeks a ago we had a 2011 Mustang 5.0 in for the concern spelled out in the TSB. We found it had an aftermarket tune, CAI, and exhaust on it. The customer had to flip the bill on the replacement engine. I'm fairly certain that our zone rep was involved in the decision to void the powertrain warranty on this car.

    After reading this I have made up my mind. Looks like I'll go with Steeda for a CAI and tune.
    I think there are a lot of tune jockey's out there. Steeda is a big outfit and I don't think they would put out a tune they weren't sure of. As some of the folks have stated here, the PCM on these cars are way more complicated than ever before. Ya know that it's way more than timing and fuel tables. The wild card is cam phasing and more. The first thing that I'd do is have the car dyno'd to chart the A/F to redline. I see why Ford is cracking down on bogus tunes. My 2 cents.

    +1 for Steeda here. I had a Bama tune. There were issues that were not able to be cured with the Bama tune. Steeda tune cleared it right up.

    Steeda all the way. I've got their CAI, tune, ultralite springs, HD upper mounts, and panhard bar and everything is top notch.

    Flawless tune that provides gobs of power while still being conservative.

    This man PERSONALLY did my Dyno Tune. Love it, and have sent others there. Wont say anything bad about Bama because I dont know. I do know that Steeda's tune is safe and awesome.. My AFR is pegged at 11.94 at WOT. Picked up OVER 40 HP and 35 TQ with it at the wheels.

    Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I'm researching. Hoping to finally get in to adding some mods this summer. How is Steeda with tunes AFTER installation? It appears from what I'm reading, Bama provides free tunes if I add other mods down the line.....

    You should call Steeda, but I was told that I would be taken care of, as long as I bought my performance parts from them.

    Can't say personally but you don't get a rep as good as Steeda has by leaving customers out in the cold. Call 'em and let us know :)

    Original post was Steeda vs Bama custom tunes. There have been several opinions of both.

    ***Any time you modify a vehicle you risk the possibility of voiding the warranty*** Duh!

    Most of us already have hand held tuners, I hold an SCT from Americam Muscle with multiple tunes from Bama.
    What are the options for us guys with mods and tuners regarding tunes? In other words, does anybody have a current list of companies that do mail order tunes?
