I'm getting the Steeda tune in short order and will see if this problem (the power cut out) continues.

Hasn't happened to me since. But i haven't pushed it really either. I look forward to your results

I still have my Bama 93 Performance tune ont the car and it happened again today. I am purpously watching the tach now, and this was a 50% depress of the throttle pedal while at 60 mph... Same thing. Power cuts out and nothing.... Lay off the throttle and a little more gentle pressure and no problems.

Frustrating.

I have had the same thing happen a few times with my Bama 93 Performance tune and Steeda CAI. The car was definitely warmed up (10 minutes of driving). From a rolling start, I had the pedal depressed "maybe" 1/2 way and I could hear the engine start to rev up. RPMs went to about 4000 RPM, then it just cut power like the rev limited kicked on and then nothing. I let off the throttle completely and then babied it up to speed and all was well...
I had a similar experience when cruising at 60mph or so, and want to get up and go... Again... cruising was at about 2400rpm and I depressed the throttle not more than 1/2 to 2/3 way I could hear it start to rev up and then all power lost.
Since this has happened sporadically, I thought maybe a hose, coupling, or intake was loose. Checked everything over again and it's buttoned up tight.
In my opinion the shifting is harder than I would like... I can feel the car push forward pretty hart and chirp the tires when I really DO depress the throttle to get up and go... This happens when you mash the pedal though. I have figured out how to modulate the throttle and get the performance I want and minimize the hard shifting.
Despite the occasional cut-out and the harder-than-desired shifting, the Bama tune definitely wakes the motor up. Power can be felt all over the place and all of the way through the RPMs.
I may contact Steeda and try their tune.

Karl, it sounds like one of our tuning specialists needs to sit down and talk with you about customizing the shifts to be something a little more suited to your wants and needs. At that time they can also talk with you directly about your issues and explain how they will go about correcting them for you. Have you contacted our tuning specialists regarding this at this point? If so, I can completely understand your frustration and I'm terribly sorry for the inconveniences and inconsistencies with your tune. If not, please check your PMs and provide me with your order information so that I may have one of our Lead Calibrators call you and help correct these issues for you. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Have a great night!

If you do, call and ask for TODD.. he's great, and I get all my stuff through him. They custom-tuned my auto and use this data as the "Starting point" for their customers with autos.

OK. Steeda tune is on. Shifting problems with my automatic transmission disappeared. Butter smooth now. I also have not seen the power drop-off at partial throttle yet. But I need to spend more driving to see if I can create the problem again.

To BAMA's credit, they have been very responsive in letting me know they'll resolve any issues I have with their tunes, but for now, my problems are gone with the Steeda tune.

I also changed the oil tonight. Fun!

Same thing here, re down loaded the tunes and it's still there. Can't put my finger on it and my time behind the wheel is about to end due to winter. I'm sure bama will help me figure it out in the spring.

Not sure who. Sent them my computer code, SCT serial #, plus my car's specs and modifications list, octane rating, and got a file back. Loaded it and she runs great!

According to the email his name was Go Fast. LOL

OK, so from what i gather, my original concerns may or may not be corrected with a tune. Whenever I floor the pedal, I expect a car to respond accordingly. In other words, when I say "Go!", I expect the SOB to go. I hear BAMA might fix it. I hear Steeda might fix it. I am still looking for somebody to get a tranny to run smoothly in all conditions.

jdnull, I assure you our tuning specialists will have your GT shifting perfectly! If you receive the tuner and the shifts feel a little harsh or quick for your tastes, our tuning specialists can set the shifting pressures to be a little softer. If you want them harder and quicker, we can have you chirping second and third gear with ease! This is also why we offer a Street, Performance and Race option, to let people use the tune that feels the best for when and how they drive their Mustang!

Everyone has their own individual tastes/driving-styles and our free tunes for life program allows you to work with our tuning specialists and dial-in the car to do exactly what you want. Take a look through the other threads about Bama right here on AFM, and I think you'll see that the problems in this thread aren't common at all. We've got people that tell us our Race tune is too tame, and people that think we're trying to kill them when they load it in because it's too much! The problems in this thread, all sound like mistakes on our side, though. Luckily, we do thousands of them and they're no big deal to fix!

kellzey, shoot me over a PM at any time with your order number and I'll get one of our Bama team members to give you a call and figure out exactly what's going on. They'll go over the tune and make sure everything looks good on our end and also go through the tune info you submitted to see if anything was missed. Once we eliminate the dumb things (which it usually ends up being!), we can work from there. I'm sure they'll have you straightened away in 10 minutes, but I'll personally make sure they do!

The Bama team works hard to make sure the tunes they're putting out there are only the best and most refined tunes available. Our own Auto 11 GT went 10.43 @ 130mph back in November of 2010, we have the fastest auto 2011+ V6, and we constantly refine our Auto calibrations through hours of Street, Track and Dyno use. Out of the thousands of 2011+ Auto Mustangs out there running our tune, very few ever experience problems. Sounds like we just had a couple bad eggs at once - and we'll have you running smooth in no time!

For me, the Race Tune was too stiff. Performance is just right. Both had no problems whatsoever in the rev problem. They'll get you fixed up man, don't worry about it. BAMA :bigthumbsup
