Has anyone used the Free "Bama" tunes that comes from AM? I think I really need to get my car tuned and I'm looking at purchasing the SCT Livewire tuner but was wondering if the Bama tunes are worth anything or if I should go with a more reputable tuner.

I went with the Bama/AM and SCT tuner. I think the 2 of the most popular are Brenspeed & Bama and I don't know who would be more reputable than those. AM's Chris Rose hangs out here regularly and could probably answer any questions you have. My Bama tunes really woke the GT500 up and I would highly recommend it! I am planning upgrades that will require new tunes so the free for life tunes make a lot of sense. Use the search button and look up some posts and research it a little, but a tune will make a lot of difference!
I used them on an 04 GT that I used to have. I didn't dyno it so I can't say what difference it really made, but I didn't experience any troubles with it, and the old butt dyno thought there was an improvement...
yes it will you just have to put your other car back to stalk cause its married to whatever car it put a tune on....
the best tune you can get is a dyno tune hands down...bama and all mail orders only do the basic they dont really TUNE the car they just allow it to make more power cause your running better fuel and have a few mods
a dyno tune will tune your entire power ban from an problems and will add fuel take away fuel add timing or take it away with how your car is running
We are Bama tunes. AmericanMuscle owns Bama Custom Tuning. We went through a big merger last year. I'm not sure what you're talking about?
We're glad people have been happy with the products so far. We've done alot of testing in-house on the dyno to make sure that our SN95 files are top of the line. It's tough because the S197 crowd has this huge night/day difference when they install a tune due to drive-by-wire, variable cam, and just the general conservative nature of the stock tune. The 99-04 guys really get a great product and a ton of power, but many times you'll find that they don't "feel" the gain as much as an S197.
We can tell you right now that if you dyno your car before/after a custom Bama tune, you're going to be surprised at the results. Not only will we get your air/fuel ratio optimized and timing optimized for your octane level, we'll make sure that we squeeze as much power safely out of your combination as possible.
Many people jump right to the "dyno tune" option. The way that we dial in our calibrations is that we make sure that the numbers we COMMAND for timing and air/fuel ratio are the numbers the car sees. This means that when we send a file out, if we're telling it to reach 28 degrees of timing at full throttle at redline, that's what it's doing. That's alot of what a dyno tuner does. They make sure that they command and achieve the same parameters. We have sent files that have been just as good as a dyno tune and sometimes better than a dyno tune in the past. Give us a call if you have any questions.

ya thats just a basic tune all your doing is telling the car to do something and its the same parameters for each car...crappy dyno tuners all they do add alittle timing and adjust a/f good dyno guys go and adjust at each RPM adjust the car at each rpm with how the car acts so thats a true dyno tune is everything
granted your tune will make a diff of course and there may not be any change at all or very little if you got to some shotty dyno but when you go to a good one and he completely tunes it then thats when youll see the diff....and you know as much as i do that every car is diff...some cars may have an almost perfect powerband and wont get much gain from a dyno and some will look like a 3 yr old drawing a straight line
all im sayin here is a dyno tune is the ultimate tune...if your on a budget mail in is good unless you have a FI car and i would say scrap a mail in
