Default No options on SCT tuner with Bama tune

I just received one of the JLT CAI and bama tune combos from American Muscle. When I loaded the tune I didn't get any options that I thought I would like changing rev limits or top speed limiter.
Can anyone tell me how to change those options?

You have to search through main menu, but if you loaded the tune your speed limiter is OFF.

Bama turns off end user options. They are offering a warranty so they need to protect themselves from using adding timing and running into an issue. I think there are some options like revs per mile that should be available but I guess SCT either allows all options or none.

actually they can choose to enable/disable any options. My local tuner turned off all options as well. Seeing as how they now tune mine for free I aint complainin. But Call bama and have em give you a revised tune with only Gear/tire height, RPM changeable. Although with them offering a tune warranty, I am pretty sure raising the RPM passed the level that their tune is written for will void the warranty they offer.

OP,

sloppymax is right on. The Bama Team does disable all the user adjustments because of our Cylinder #8 warranty. However, if you need any tire height adjustments or would like the Rev Limiter set a little higher, give the Bama Team a call @ 88.257.1770. They'll send you new tunes with adjustments made, that you need!

Let me know if you have any other questions!

And lets face it, that is the right thing to do if your gonna offer a warranty on the tunes. I mean if its tuned to a max of 7000rpms and the user takes it to 8000 and melts #8 you cant blame the tune.
