Finally the BAMA arrived!

We'll it's about freaking time!!! Nah I'm just really impatient.

Anyways, it showed up today and I uploaded the 87 performance. I must say it gives my truck quite an improvement! But only at WOT...

I will try the 91 perfoamnce tonight as well as cranking up shift firmness to 25%, and rev to 6000. Right now its at 20% and 5800.

Fixed my speedo finally..lol, 1.5 years later...still not 100% accurate but dang close. Used to be anywhere from 8-11 mph off...now its like 2...maybe 3.

Overall I would say I recommend the tuner...but not until after exhuast and intake...but that just personal preference. I would also say that this mod has been the most noticable increase in power/performance so far...and I havent even tried 91...so I am pretty happy and excited to try that tonight.

I gave it 4 or 5 hard pulls....each time was faster until the last one...but I think it was because my engine was hot...and it was like 105 outside. Tonight when it cools down and I try 91 I think I will be even more satisfied.

my dad and his timing are insane. He gave me the taco offer 2 weeks after I ordered the BAMA. Oh well...I suppose it will help the truck sell. But I have this truck for another 2 months I believe. So I'm gonna saver the last moments.

and dont you mean 5 PM...not am....am would be nice and cool:

isnt that where it drops off on a stock motor though? With headers, exhuast and intake most of my power should be in the higher rpms

anyways, I just tried the 91 tune and all I have to say is WOW....that is way different than 87, lol.

I did put the rev at 6,000 and shift firmness at 25%...it was much faster. I am very pleased. And this tune will be going off tomorrow...I dont need that much hp for driving to work...I'll save the 91 tune for the track.

I do have a superchips programmer and I love it, but I know the bama tuner is better.
