  2. SCT X4 has almost no options

    2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    Hello, I've just bought SCT X4 for my 2011 3.7. But even after all updates etc. there are no options for intake (only stock and STEEDA), option "headers" is not here, throttle body also not. There is just "fuel octane", diff gear ration, revs/ mile, idle neutral, idle gear. And that is all. Does...

  4. 2017 GT stock - Should I tune if not planning any mods?

    2015+ 5.0 Tech
    Bought a 2017 base model GT about 6 weeks ago. Had hoped my truck would make it another year and would have bought the GT Premium, but you can't always get what you want. Anyway, I'm not planning any mods. I run 93 octane most of the time, but occasionally 91. Is it worth my money to get a...
  5. Tuners

    4.6L Tech
    Alright, so I got a swapped 4.6L stock in the 98 GT and this thing needs a tune. I have a lot of interest in the BAMA DIABLOSPORT INTUNE I2 TUNER or the BAMA ITSX WIRELESS TUNER. The only problem is, I have no idea how the system works. I know the bama tuners are known for free tunes for life...

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    Hi everyone! I just purchased a BBK CAI system and have I'm currently in a bidding war on Ebay for a SCT tuner as well. I'm wondering if anyone has gone with this combination? Also, does the SCT tuner have a pre-loaded config so you can just "plug n play" to the OBD or do you have to download...

    4.6L Tech
    I got mine a few weeks ago and it was a pretty good buy. Got my mpg higher coz of the Performance tune. I got a new mod on my car recently so I ordered new tunes from Bama, they emailed me the new tunes and how to upload em on your device. Followed the procedure but when I open the SCT Device...

It came on and I successfully updated it to the latest firmware release. I tested all the fuses inside...
  11. Bama SCT tuner options

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    I was looking through my Bamachips SCT tuner and under the performance tune it has all the additional engine options, I know what some of it is but not all of it, such as things like "global spark" etc. is there some kind of an instruction manual on the tuner that explains each option?

    I have just purchased a SCT SF3 handheld tuned for my 96GT as I'm getting rid of the cats and need to stop the O2 sensor engine codes. I have a couple of questions, firstly as mine is a 1996 do I have to disconnect the battery after I tune it? Both terminals or just one? Also I've looked into...
  13. Ordering a Tuner from American Muscle, what tune options do I have?

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    I am ordering a SCT tuner for my car from American Muscle this weekend. I am curious about what tune options they offer. I know they have street, performance, & race with various octane options. I've also heard talk of hybrid tunes and potential other variations for road race guys (more linear...
  14. Can't load tunes into SCT..

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    For whatever reason, the SCT program won't properly display on my laptop running Windows 8. By fluke, after enough times pressing "Tab" and then the space bar, I was able to open up the menu to select my tune file. From there, though, I have no idea where the "Program" button is, or how many...
  15. Question about SCT and "Return to stock"..

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    I'll get right to the point.. I didn't return my car to stock before updating my tuner. I don't see the need to have a stock tune file, as my car will never be returned to stock, nor will it ever be started with a stock tune in it. Not to mention that it takes FOREVER, and I don't feel like...

  19. Need confirmation about locked SCT

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Hello, My SCT is on the way to SCT shop for unlocking however I'm not sure if it is really locked. I was told by SCT hotline consultant that if there is no information about status in the Device Info section it means it is locked. There is a tune for X-Charger on this unit and if SCT resets it...
  20. SCT tuner will not connect to vehicle

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    My SCT won't "marry" the car. I plug it in to my car, press program vehicle, strategy tune, wait for it to tell me to turn on my key. It then tells me to turn my key off. Immediately after it tells me "no strategy tune found" or "read strategy failed" Im using it on an 2005 GT. Thanks in advance!
