I too would like to know how to backup my stock tune on my pc in the house. My tuner tells me to return to stock & I don't have a laptop for the pony yet? Am I going to have to buy a laptop or tablet?

Thanks, I got it done, and sent a copy of my stock tune to my tuner, motorvationefi for a custom tune. I did do a foggy full correction on the 2012 3.7 today and it is SMOOTH!

First, thanks everyone for all the great info. I was a bit of a gear head 20 years ago, but family, professional life, etc. made life too hectic to work on my own cars. So truth be told, my wrench skill are a bit dated.

Now that all but one of my kids is off to college, and I've paid off the '07 I have more time (and funds) available to trick out my garage into a legit shop and use my Mustang as my new project car.

One thing I wanted to know is, if you watch shows like Street Outlaws, you see guys like Justin (aka Big Chief) using his laptop to tune his and other peoples cars. What setup is he using? It's obviously way more elaborate than these little handheld tuners and custom tunes you get Bama or SCT

They are using actual tuning software on their laptops. SCT does sell the software to write tunes for Mustangs, it is called the Pro Racer Package (PRP) and costs around $400 for a single car package - meaning it is married to your particular ECM strategy. Check out LaSota Racing on the web. HP Tuners also has software for Mustangs too. Not sure if anyone sells software to tune stangs on the fly without having to write the tune on the laptop, download it to the SCT handheld and then upload it to the car.
