  2. Manual tuning in Shaker 500

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    I have an '07 V6 Mustang with a Shaker 500. I can get the FM radio to "Seek" to next strongest signal, but actually want to tune the radio to a DEAD frequency, for a bluetooth FM transmitter gadget I plugged in. Seek (by design) skips over these dead frequencies, and I cannot find in the...

  5. Tuning Issue - Detonation

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Hey guys. A little background: I currently drive a 2007 Mustang V6, which I've had since 2009. The CAI / tune in question has been on the car since 2012-2013. Awhile back I had my car in the shop getting a fan replaced. No big deal, and I informed them that the car had a custom tune and not...
  6. Holley Carb Tuning on a Mild-ish 289

    Classic Tech
    Recently, I bought a Quick Fuel 680 HR vacuum secondary carburetor, and being a Quick Fuel, it is almost fully tunable. Yeah, 680 might be a bit big, but I like to rev high, and some extra tuning can get things to work well down low. I have used both an Edelbrock 1406 and a Holley 570 Street...
  7. Do I need a tune/chip for this build?

    5.0L Tech
    Hello everyone, im new to this site and looking forward to some great info. I have a 89 Mustang Gt, 5spd. Just got the car a couple weeks ago and it feels way way under powered for what it has in it. The guy told me he never had it tuned since he built it, but the MAF/injectors/throttle body...
  8. Cleaning Throttle Body 2007 GT

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    It takes less than 15 minutes and makes a world of difference. This is at 61,000 miles; my 2006 GT was more than twice as bad at 100k. I just use carburetor/throttle body cleaner and sacrifice an old soft bristle tooth brush. It helps with throttle response and taking out hesitation in the...
  9. Bama Ghost Cam tune thoughts.

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    I just ordered my Cat delete maps from Bama and I have read about the Ghost Cam tune they offer so I had them send me one. Has anyone played around with the Ghost cam tune? I have watched a few videos and the tune makes the car sound pissed off at idle. I do not think I will run it much. I think...

  12. Help on tuning my 1996 cobra

    SVT Cobra Tech
    So my brother gave me his SCT live wire "tuner" I'm not sure of the technical term. The question is can I tune my car for 93 octane with it, since that's all I run, and would it be worth taking to a dyno shop if I couldn't do it at home?

    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...

    4.6L Tech
    If I had a Mustang GT 4,6L v8 from 2006 (about 300 bhp stock) what would I need to get it up to about 400-450 Bhp? Is it possible to make it run without to much maintenence and issues? (Like a stock car would) (I was thinking super charger, but as much as I like power, I like sound and I...

  17. SCT Bama Tuning Issues

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Hey guys, Im having some issues with my 09 v6 and tuning it. I have found that after I run a tune (or even return it to stock) that it has some terrible idle surges for a bit after the tune. It seems to be the worst when coasting in neutral. I mean the car goes crazy, 1000-3000rpm jumps...

  19. Stumbling from a stop

    Classic Tech
    I just rebuilt my carb, autolite 1100, and now have a problem. When I ease on the gas, all is well and I can go to high rpm. From a stop, if I try to romp or just give it a quick tap, it stumbles and dies. A little more info: my accelerator pump was squirting gas with the rebuild so I...
