Question Tuners: Economy and or Performace?

Hi just purchased a 1999 GT and want to get a tuner, I want to be able to have a good economy tune so i can save money while im in school. But I also want to be able to throw some power to the wheels. Ive looked around and Bama has a tuner called the economizer which is supposed to improve fuel economy by 2-3 gallons. But it doesnt have any performance tunes. The acutal performance tuner they sell for 100$ more has 3 tunes but only offers 1-23 miles per gallon increase. is there a tuner that does both or can the Bama performance tuner load an economizer tune? :?:

Shrmnatr,

We have 3 different tunes available for your particular Mustang! Street, Performance, and Race tune. The Street and Performance tune both pick up additional power and are both tuned for economy.

Most of our customers experience a 1 or 2 mpg increase with one of these tunes on a stock Mustang. If paired with a CAI, we've seen as much as 3 mpg.

Hopefully this helps clear up some of the confusion. Let me know if you have more questions about our Bama tunes or tuners!

Shane

I have an X3 with Bama tunes and I'm pretty happy with it. I got 24-26 mpg on the highway before the gears, not sure now. If your trying to save money you will have to drive 30-40k miles to recoupe the cost of the tuner with a 2 mpg increase in mileage.
