Two Thumbs Up For Brenspeed

Installed C&L CAI with Brenspeed tune. One word, Awesome!! Night and day difference and I am only running the 87 tune. I am sure there are other fine tuners out there, but I recommend Brenspeed to anyone looking to make their Stang more responsive.

Will eventually upload the 93 tune for comparison sake, but right now I am very happy with 87.

When you finally get the 93 tune, you'll be impressed all over again. What these ponies can do with little modification is exciting...and it never seems to end, one mod after another..kinda like chasing after the Holy Grail. Had my first challenge today by a new Daytona Charger-Hemi...the driver is probably still spanking his car for embarassing him like that....live and learn!! :smoke:

Couple questions:

Do you guys who got a CAI and tune plan to go SUpercharger down the road? OR are you content with the CAI?

Which do you guys like better Evolution's tunes? Or Brenspeed? I know Brenspeed is great from what I hear, and so is Evo, however, Evo is about a 2 hour drive from my house and he has a dyno, so it might be more worth my while to get my stuff from him...

I'll probably stay N/A. Just can't justify the $4-6,000 to S/C. But may add a 75 shot down the road. Can't comment on the Evo tunes. The big 3 seem to been Evo, Bamachips, and Brenspeed. I've been very satisfied with my Brenspeed tune.

Yeah. I might go to the track once in my life, but that's about it since this is my daily driver, I can't risk injury to it. So I'm having trouble jusifying a S/C. The CAI provides some extra boost in performance, while keeping the $$$ down(and no added stress on the engine).

I guess ytou have to look at it like this:

A full tank costs you say 46 bucks @ 2.90 for 87.
What's another $3.20(an extra 20 cents per gallon)?

Say you spend 2200 bucks on gas per year(4 fillups per month), about another 144 bucks extra for the 93 every year...doesn't seem so bad now does it? :-P

or maybe it does...LOL sorry

PS my numbers were a little rounded so they might be off a couple dollars

A very good point twoscoops however I fill up about three times per week . I commute about 50 miles each way to work so it hurts a lil more than that. Either way I have stuck with the 93 tune because it just feels that much better. I guess thats the price I have to pay for the fun I want to have.....

If you have the opportunity to get a dyno tune, do it. Many of the canned tunes are good, some better than others, with Excellent Customer Service being the real deciding factor. As I was told when I had mine done, no 2 cars are alike, especially with the S197's, so what may be good for one is not necessarily right for the other. Having a dyno tune takes out the guess work and individualizes it. If all that makes sense. As far as adding a S/C, not for me. To costly and to many parts to go bad. I'll be staying NA, with a Zex Kit on my list as a future mod....maybe this fall. :kooky:

Hi there

Have any of you tried both Bamachips and Brenspeed tunes on your cars? How would you compare the two?

As one of the writers in Road and Track put it, gasoline is "liquid entertainment."

I know this is off topic, but... buy a beater 4 cylinder that will pay for itself in the gas savings. (I made sure I kept my beater and my car still even SMELLS like new 8 months later) <2000 miles on her
my two cents...
