I don't think they do mail order tunes for power adder cars.

Yes. You tell the tuner about your setup. He programs his tune onto a chip, and you install chip. I have one on my car.

For a turbo application, your best to have it tuned on a Dyno in your area, or work with someone remote tuning. We have many Quarterhorse user's that have the ability to finalize there calibration that will be needed rather then a canned tune and or mail order chip.

i know that but with a chip he mails it to you.. and if its really far off or needs some serious tweaks you gotta pull it out and ship it back to him and stuff..which in hindsight is kinda pointless to do all that when you could have just got tuned locally..

Playdoh302,

Unfortunately, we won't tune for a heavily modified Mustang like yours, even as sick as it is! When you have extreme mods like this, you definitely want to go with a dyno tune. That is the only way to truly have a safe tune since there's so many different variables that can come into play. The tune could really go in a few directions, especially for drive-ability. It's much easier with the Stang right in front of your to fix these issues.

If you need a recommended dyno shop in your area, feel free to hit one of our Bama Specialists up on the number in my signature. Good luck with this mean Fox!

Or
Set timing to 19 deg, pull spout, FP ...to 40ish, watch A/F's 11.5's under BIG boost...GTG
This will get you by untill you can find a Dec tuner with a dyno or MS

I have ran a year this way.....Just to lazy to drive the 3 hrs to dyno..LOL....but I'm happy with the results
BUT really the Dyno is the only way to go!!

Late 30's not so fat anymore white guy drivin a Turbo 5.0.....15 years TOO late
09' G8 GT tune & 100 shot 12.2's
