Best 2016 5.0 Tunes?

Hello All,

Im looking to tune my car for the first time, Ive heard many people mention BAMA does a bad job on the 2015+ 5.0's. Ive heard LUND is good tunes, but they are like $200 each, so If i change mods i would need another $200 tune?

Ive looked into Steeda and Lund right now. Steeda does unlimited changes to your tune with new mods.

Lund gives free revisions with no extra charge and I would run their tune over Steeda any day of the week.

I was looking into their Cold air intake and tune package its a good deal it seems, but was wondering about their tune quality.

Also how many miles should i put on the car before I tune it? I know tuning voids your engine warranty, so I want to make sure I'm good to go before I void that. I got 700 miles on the car now.

to tell you frankly i just got my 16 GT PP last January 28 and i only have 350 miles on it. the dealer does not car about the tune in here (denver). had the car back on the dealer about a busted fuse and they are fine with it as long as you don't break the engine.

Hmm, So it seems Steeda's 20% discount still works from black Friday! Makes the Intake/Tune deal like $600 pretty great deal, wish my tax return would get here so I can jump on that! Was suppose to get it by the 27th Feb filed on the 6th.....

Choosing a tune based on price isn't being very smart.

Haven't seen Brenspeed mentioned in this thread yet. I've had a Steeda CAI and Brenspeed tune on my last 3 Mustangs(currently '15 GT) and they've been great. No issues at all, and their customer service is top-notch. They also offer the Steeda CAI and their tune in a package deal on their website. I suggest you do your research though. Don't just go after the best deal. This is your engine you're talking about. Good luck
