How fast you are is largely up to your driving skill, traction, mods, etc. All tuners here are pretty good.

Subscribed. I was just thinking that we needed a thread that asked members for their opinions on the various tunes, as there are simply zero of them on this forum already.

Would be very interested to try a new tune. I run a Lund one right now sent a datalog Ken responds says he will review and send tune and then with 4 email requests to requesting review and no reply even asking if I had to pay more money to get the data log reviewed. It's a good tune but there is allot left on the table with this tune and service is minimal. I was at the track a few weeks ago and simple change in my SCT tuner to the speed shift RPM on 1-2 2-3 3-4 to +2 MPH and gained .18 seconds next run. Virtually same 60 ft and 330ft times.

I spoke with Shaun AED and he mentioned with my mods he could not set the shift point past 7200 RPM which is weird since I have a Boss intake. Would like to try one of his tunes if I could get 7500-7600 RPM.

Bama has super good customer service, tune feels tight far as shift points, motor etc but I have had a ton of problems nailing down the tranny when it passes 200km it basically hits rev limiter and won't shift past that point. Probably have had 9+ tune revisions already and basically gave up trying to be a guinea pig for tuning it right now.

If you have an auto give VMP or Brenspeed a try. 2 best granny set ups right now.

Absolutely. I have a BAMA 93r tune with boss intake, Jlt cold air, Full GT500 exhaust, h-pipe and have raced buddies with the same mods basicaly with Lund and other tunes and I have yet to see any noticeable difference in how they run.. I shift at 7400, 423rwhp.

dont buy into these "custom" tunes, its just a way to get your money. all you need to do is buy the SCT tuner, and start messing around with it until your happy.

LOL. Perfect. Just get a spare motor while you are at it.

Power is in the timing, just bump it up 10 degrees or so. :lol1:

I'd be willing to do this since my roommate owns a shop with a dyno, but the handhelds dont let you adjust cam timing. But seems most tunes are close to equal for a manual
