  1. 5.0L Tech
    Hello, I am new here and appreciate any advice. I need to tune a stock 5.0 that has been stripped of all the electronics. It currently has an HEI distributor, MSD ignition box, 650 CFM carb, Performer intake, and shorty headers. Any advice would be helpful as the sites I have searched all...

    I've contacted SCT regarding their progress on releasing an application that can be used on the iPad for chip tuning. This morning I heard back from them saying that they are hoping to have something out by the end of the year. :cooldude: This is good news for people like me who own an iOS...

    I need to know a little bit about tuning the 289 with a 2V carburetor. Obviously I'm doing it wrong because I cannot get my car running correctly and smoothly. Here's what I've done: Adjusted timing to 9 degrees BTDC. It was set VERY close to TDC before. Installed Pertronix Ignitor 2...

    I have 1992 Mustang GT, and Ive replaced the upper and lower intake with a TrickFlow intake street heat. also I have rocker roller arms, a bigger mass air, and 3.55 gears. But it really doesn't feel as fast as it should. Do i need a "tune"?. I know for the newer mustangs and such you can just...

    Hey Everyone, So I am new to the Mustang scene, and I just bought a 1998 GT. It's pretty much stock, and I am wondering what kind of basic things I can do to improve performance. the previous owner already put in a pretty nice air intake on it, the brand escapes me at the moment, but other...

    Guys I am new to the site, so bear with me if I am asking a question already asked/answered. I have a '96 GT. I have pulled the engine due to a blown head gasket and have decided to rebuild the top end. The car was all stock, but now I have put on 44cc Trick flow heads, 270 comp cams, bbk...

    :drool:Hey everyone again. Just to start out, I have looked at some threads on the QH on this site after I determined Id probably buy it. Just need a morale boost from anyone with experience with the QH and such and I know you are out there. I have heard people say its one of the best things...

    Hey guys, I was looking for something like this when I wanted to try out the new American Muscle 93 Race tune, but didn't really find any information all in one thread. So, figured I would just make it for you all. So, I probably ended up with one of Doug's very last 93 Race tunes...
  11. 2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Hey Guys, Can someone walk me through the process of just replacing one tune on my SCT X3 tuner? I like my 2 Bamachips ones, but i wanted to switch out my 93 Torque with American Muscle's new 93 Race tune. I'm afraid I will accidently override my old Bamachips Race tune. Any help would be...
  12. Classic Tech
    Hey guys, I am having an issue with my fastback. I recently restored this car, and had the engine rebuilt. I put it all together and even drove it to the mustang round up in Steamboat, Colorado last year. It runs fine when you are on the gas... But it idles high, and hesitates on...

    I really need to jet down my carburetor on my 68 289. Its running way too rich. i purchased the tuning kit with all of the springs and rods and jets that i could possibly need. I just need to know how to change the jets. Btw the carburetor is a 600 cfm 1405 Thanks in advanced.
  14. 2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    About to pull the trigger on an SCT tuner/CAI combo, but was wondering if I upgraded to 05-09 Mustang GT in the future, can I still use the SCT tuner? I know I would need new tunes though. I figure the computer in the GT and V6 is probably the same, could be wrong...
  15. V6 Talk
    Now that i baught my diablo tuner i was wondering if there is a way to get a tune for CAI and exhaust? I know the stock tune comes for a stock 3.8 v6 but that you can still squeez out some more ponies by ordering one of those online tunes from bamachips... the reasoning behind this is because ur...

    I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions as to what base timing i should run on my 302. it's a mildly built motor, with no power adders like N02 or a charger. The motor has not been installed or started yet, but plan on getting it running within the next couple of weeks. Any help would...

    I'm currently running a relatively bone stock 02 GT. I've added a K&N FIPK air intake, and thrown a new flowmaster catback system on my stang, but I'm sure I'm not really benefitting from these mods because I still have the stock chip. I will be ordering BBK Long tube headers and a BBK xpipe...
  18. 5.0L Tech
    I am thinking of going with this instead of a tweecer since i have no dyno shops near me. I also figure it will be cheaper in the long run as 3 sessions and tuning will be around the same price. Any input, any one using one...

    I just wanted to see how much interest there would be if I had a one-week-only mail order tuning special? It would be $40 dollars for mail order tunes (S197) V6 & V8 only. Cold air intakes, long tubes, delete plates, and all other bolton mods included. Turbo, nitrous, supercharger would be...

    Just sharing some mail order dyno results from a customer from Arizona in approx 1000-1100 ft altitude vs. Philadelphia areas 100-200ft altitude. As well, this was done in 92-95 degree weather, its about 25-30 degrees cooler here, easily. Our average humidity is quite a bit more than theirs...
