2012 GT 5.0 and Bama tuner question¿?

Thinking about buying a bama tuner for my stock 5.0 soon. If I upgrade to Rousch super charger later can I install the VMP tune with my Bama tuner or do you have buy their tuner to get the VMP tune?

May just stay NA and do MMR modular with forged internals and cams instead. Want to drive both setups before I start the build.

Just want a good tune now.

As long as it's the SCT device you can use it. I don't think they tune for Diablosport.

2013 Mustang GT - Black - 6MT - Vortech V3, Brembos, GT500/Lethal H, Bilstein HD/Steeda HD/Sports, BMR LCA/PHB, Lund

-------Previously-------
1997 Cobra Vert - Triple Black - lots of mods
1996 GT - Black - some mods
1988 GT - Black - no mods

It's not really a Bama tuner which many refer to. It's an SCT device that Bama loads their tunes on. As does VMP, Lund, AED etc etc. I would get the tune from VMP from the get go. And yes they do free revisions also.

Yes, you can use our Bama Tuner (SCT SF3) to load tunes from any company onto your car. I have a 2012 GT and when installing a CAI and Bama custom tune, I noticed huge improvements in a few different departments. Power, torque, acceleration, drive ability, gas mileage, throttle response and so much more!

For every Bama Tune we ask you 19 questions about your specific Mustang, including your unique mods and style of driving. This info helps us write custom tunes from the ground-up for your Mustang's mods that will give you the most horsepower that we can safely deliver. We're also constantly developing our tunes! Between our 14 different Project Mustangs and tons of street/track and dyno testing (on our in-house Dynojet 224xLC), we're looking for any minor tweaks to be made that can benefit you guys. We're also part of Fords Technology Transfer Program & Work very closely with Ford to insure that all of our tunes are perfect!

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future. 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 and they'll get you squared away!

Bought the Bama tuner with K&N filter for the stock box. Wow, the 93 Race tune really wakes up the motor. I'm gonna need new tires soon.

So I passed an unmarked Taurus SHO and got pulled over. Hats off to Constables that are Ford fans, I only got a warning. Would have been expensive.

Dude, you're the man.

Constables in my neck of the woods (Pasadena) are all about the money and giving tickets.

It must have been your lucky day!
