Does BAMA make a tune for 100 octane fuel?

I just purchased a SCT tuner through American Muscle, for my 2011 mustang gt. While driving around tonight I saw a gas station with 100 octane fuel. Now its not the cheapest gas I have ever seen, but it would be pretty cool to do a few runs on it, with the right tune. Has anyone seen a tune from BAMA that would support 100 octane?

100 octane fuel is common and so are tunes for it. The difficult part keeping only 100 octane fuel in the tank because of the cost.

I don't think they'll make a 100 octane tune. When I asked they didn't make a 87 octane tune for our Shelby, but maybe they will make a 100 octane one for you, don't know.

100 isn't an option in their tuning profile. I suppose you could always call though.

Calimustang2011,

Unfortunately we don't tune for anything higher then 93 Octane gasoline. You could run race gas with our tune however you won't see that great of improvements mainly because its set up for a lower octane fuel.

I'm sorry I couldn't be more help, let me know if I can be of any other assistance.

It was the 76 on Saratoga Ave and HWY 9 in Down town Saratoga. I looked online and saw the VP on camden has 93 so I will be checking that out as well. But 100 octane is priced relatively cheap at......8.99 per gallon!

If you look closely you will see it was 8.999, I love the 9/10 of a ¢ all stations from coast to coast use.

I just installed a Ford Racing CAI with a 91 tune, no 93 tune available thank you California. I now pay over $4 for 93 but I don't have to get out of my car as self service is illegal in NJ.
