Same drivetrain, so yes it applies to 13's.

Just from reading w/o having one. It sounds like most of the improvement will come from better/quicker shifting. You will get some improvements in power. Be warned you may loose most of your powertrain wtty....

Maybe he left the traction control on.

Winkawak,

I always recommend CAI and Tune to anyone entering the modification game. Especially with the 13' GT/V6s! For every Bama Tune we ask you 19 questions about your specific Mustang, including your unique mods and style of driving. This info helps us write custom tunes from the ground-up for your Mustang's mods that will give you the most horsepower that we can safely deliver. We're also constantly developing our tunes! Between our 14 different Project Mustangs and tons of street/track and dyno testing (on our in-house Dynojet 224xLC), we're looking for any minor tweaks to be made that can benefit you guys.

Here's the Characteristics of each tune:

  • Street (87-93 octane) - The street tune is designed as a daily driver program that focuses on increasing mid-range power. Automatic vehicles are further enhanced by making adjustments to the transmission's shift points and firmness.
  • Performance (87-93 octane) - The Performance program is designed to add power at 3000 RPMs and higher, focusing more on the top end horsepower and all out performance driving. Timing, fuel and throttle response settings are slightly more aggressive than the street tune. This is a great track tune but also works well for daily drivers that are looking for a little more "get up and go" than the street tune. The automatic transmission settings are the same as in the street tune.
  • Race (91 - 93 octane) - The race tune will ensure the largest increase in vehicle performance. Using the highest grade of fuel available in your area is mandatory. This file is designed for "Race Use Only", as the timing, fuel, and throttle response settings are very aggressive. It is so aggressive that we do not recommend it for daily driving as it may cause your vehicle to try to jump out from a stop and easily spin the tires. On automatics, we implement entirely new shift points and firmness settings to further enhance the all-out performance of the vehicle.
I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.

Diablo and I just finished up tweaking my tune. They have it shifting without the rpm hang, the front end actually rises some with the shift now. Firm. I have taken my WOT a/f to 12.2 from their setting of 11.9, leaning it out some, and this car is a whole new animal. Even tried the stock tune out a couple of weeks ago. NO comparison. Also, with the inTune, you can have some adjustablity on your end. You can make changes. They are also working on datalogging more parameters with the inTune so you can veiw on your laptop with Diablo Data Veiwer.

As a past experienced tuner myself, I'm looking forward to datalogging the A/F (so I don't have to use my phone recording the dash ) and the spark knock to make sure all is well. That'll be great for making passes at the track, in my case.

Hmm my steeda tune has some "RPM hang" but I don't know what you mean by that. Does it happen all the time or just sometimes? Sometimes when using the manual selector and than after switching to drive will keep the car in whatever gear i had it manually in, than it shifts very firm into the next gear. It's jolting, but happens only occasionally. is this what your referring to? doesn't happen in drive only manual selector than going to drive.

If you were asking me, not sure...They pretty much eliminated it altogether. At least enough to make this picky driver happy. I hated the "hanging" rpms between shifts...like it was slipping into gear instead. No longer an issue here with the tune they have in my car now. It was bad enough to lose ET in a drag strip pass based on my drag racing years.

It was very apparent at WOT. I now feel a slight improvement (you can feel it) in all driving. It's not harsh at part throttle though. Just enough to actually feel it now. On this '13, I have the button, while in sport mode, to shift up and down. It shifts much much quicker after pressing it than before, firmness is there too.
