We do still sell individual tunes, but they're not listed on the site. The only way to buy 1 tune is to give us a call and set up the order.

Three things:

1) I love my Bama tune on my Shelby
2) I add **** to my car all the time so "Bama tunes for life rocks!"
3) They are responsive. Emailed them last night about the difference between a "Ford Racing Resonator delete" and the gains on "other" CAIs. They got back the next day and saved me hundreds of dollars! (Hint: $55 for the Ford Racing Resonator Delete is all you need for the gain)

I vote Brenspeed. Got their Stage 3 on my Saleen SC GT. Night and day difference from the standard Saleen tune. The car is just a monster now. Excellent throttle response. These guys know their stuff. Plus they are always very responsive on any questions. If you are within a half day drive of their shop you have to go!

I've got the Brenspeed tunes. Haven't tried the 87 tune yet but have used the 91 and the 93 and am very pleased. I have a manual tranny. Car seems pretty normal when you drive it passively, but lots of extra juice once you hit about 3,500+ rpm. You can actually feel it kicking in at that point.

I must say that I have not noticed an increase in mileage. If anything my highway milage may be down a bit.

Would like to try the Bama tunes but apparently you can't keep more than 3 tunes plus stock tune on the SCT tuner at any one time.

I have "HEARD" that bama and brenspeed both use sct's tuning software, isn't that the only way to program the sct tuners, because if you purchase the programs you can do it yourself. Either way you will Love either of them, just get one

I have a couple of tunes for mine, a custom dyno and Brenspeed. I usually run the Brenspeed tune. It just feels like it pulls harder. They have great customer service, but that's really the case with them and the guys at AM. In my opinion you can't go wrong with either one.

Forged bottom end, Ported heads, Saleen super charger, 2.8 blower pulley/15psi, Dual stage water to air intercooler, AFCO heat exchanger, battery relocated, Twin GT500 fuel pumps, T-56 trans, Aluminum flywheel, Aluminum driveshaft, 3.73 rear gears, Eaton TruTrac Diff, TA Performance rear end girdle, Racecraft suspension system, UCA, LCA, panhard bar, 15" slotted front rotors w/ 6 piston calipers, Carbon Fiber front splitter/rear diffuser, and bunch of other stuff
RWHP/RWTQ is adequate

Brenspeed for sure

Most customers report that MPG increased as long as the could stay out of the throttle. You will also receive free tune updates for life on tune required purchases made through Brenspeed. Plus you get the customer service many members on here love.

Every word is true as can be. But Brenspeed is all about help full knowlegable service, they go over the top to help you no matter what it takes, and they dont talk down to you or rush you on the phone. Everything I bought for my 07 GT came from Brenspeed and all future goodies will be bought right there.

I can't tell you which one is better but I just installed a Brenspeed tune with my new CAI and the "throttle response" , butt dyno:kooky:, tire spin all tell me that is was money well spent. If it's close to the 30-40 HP gain as advertised then it's a 10-14% gain over stock for very few $. I would say that it's the best bag for the buck and a must for all.

The low end lag is gone, even in 5th gear at 40 mph you can feel the pull increase. It is easier to take off at the light. Its smoother, more pull in every gear. Throttle response is immediate with no lag. Car even sounds better.

Did I say it awesome?

Any tune by a reputable tuner will be great. AM and Brenspeed have great customer service.
Also i give a shout out to VMP. Justin makes some nasty tunes.

And American Muscle will update your tune free whenever you need one due to mods, and doesn't matter if you bought their mods or someone elses, or their own updates.

The Bama Street tune was noticeably stronger then stock and also better then my previous 93 octane steeda sct tune. You'll be happy either way. But not sure if Brenspeed provides free tunes if you bought mods from somewhere else? Ask them!

I am really curious about this.. are you certain that you can add additional mods later that were not purchased from them and they will update your tune for free?
