Hey guys just had a few questions. I recently picked up a 2005 GT that is completely stock. The original owner (older guy) wasn't very tech savvy. However, the car did come with a Predator Tuner. He told me he always ran 91 octane but didn't know if the car was tuned or not. Is there any way to see what tune if any that I am running with the tuner ? ie: just plug it in and let it do its thing. It is the right tuner for the year, a 7140 I double checked. I am almost certain that the car is not custom tuned as it is completely stock. Also, if the battery is disconnected over the winter does this reset everything to stock? I am going through a huge learning curve right now with the car so any help is appreciated. I used the search feature first but came up a bit short.
Congrats on picking up your new 05 GT! Post up some pics of it when you get a chance.
If you want to reset the car back to stock, you'll have to use the Predator to do it. Unhooking the batter will just clear the KAM memory (that stores emissions data, etc.) and the tunes will still be there when you hook it back up.
Bama can write tunes for your Diablo Predator and I think you'll be really happy with the difference. They can write you (3) different tunes for any octane levels from 87-93, and tailor it for your driving style (Street, Performance or Race). You'll need to buy into the Bama "Free Tunes for Life" program, which will get you the 3 tunes, but also unlimited updates when you add mods down the road.

Our tunes are all custom built for your PCM code, modifications, drving style, fuel octane, etc. We ask you 19 questions when you place your order, which help us build custom tunes just for your Mustang. "Canned" tunes are tunes that are pre-loaded or built-into your programmer and work across every Mustang. They're not terrible, but there's huge room for improvement.
If you have any questions about the differences, dyno results or want to know what Bama can do for you, just give them a shout! They're here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 10AM-3PM EST at 888.226.9764. They'll be able to answer your questions and walk you through emailing out the tunes and getting them loaded to your Predator.
Hope this helps!
