This debate has been going on for a while. Since Chirs formerly of Tilman speed has joined American Muscle and is involved with the tuning for Bama, then that may be worth checking out. I am sure brenspeed also has awesome tunes.

I placed our vote but it may be a little biased.:

Our tunes have been developed on the dyno, at the track, and on the streets for maximum satisfaction. Your throttle response will be instant, drivability is increased when compared to stock, and the low end torque and top end hp is increased. 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.

I have Bama's tunes (now part of American Muscle) and don't have any complaints, but I have heard great things about Brenspeed and I plan to make a trip up there when I can afford it.

Really you can't go wrong with either company. If you compare equal tunes from each company you will get the same 1/8 or 1/4 mile times. The biggest factor will be the driver. I have both Bamachips tunes and Brooksspeed tune and at the track my times are nearly identical.

Everything I have read about both of them seems to be that everyone really likes them about the same. I personally plan to go with Bama (just because they are part of AM).

I've always been a BIG American Muscle guy, but I've used Brenspeed for one product and I was extremely happy with how fast and great they were. Either way you will be fine.

Yeah I've heard nothing but awesome stuff from both places. The only thing is, on down the road I was planning to S/C my car at Brenspeed. So I figured going ahead and getting this there now would save me a little later.

Sorry, but I will not trust any mail tune unless im in a pinch and than i would not get on it until I have put it on a dyno to see what is going on. There is not sub for a quility custom dyno tune. It may cost a bit more but it's well worth it. every car will run differant and respond differant to mods just like every mustang from the factory varries in HP. Nothing against Brenspeed or Bama tune, I had a Bama Tune and it was good and nothing happend to my car but the first time i had a chance to get a good custom tune on a dyno I took it. Plus Most shops will give you a discount on the dyno tune if you buy the tuner from them. For example Stang Hi in Baton Rouge will knock $100 of the dyno tune. If any of you are in the area look them up.

V3 vortech (11lb boost) SSW longtube headers, 4:10 and awsome tune from Stang Hi performance (Baton Rouge LA).

Love my Brenspeed tune. Great throttle response and MPG is at or better than stock on the highway.
