Bama Chips - any problems?


Recommended Posts

Bama Chips-anybody had trouble with this guy?

 

Ordered a tuner 3 weeks ago - and nothing. He said it would ship two weeks ago, and then just disappeared. Is this guy on the level?

 

Thanks!!!

Doug is on vacation. I use Bamachips exclusively and have had nothing but success. The only delay I ever had was when Doug was on vacation for a week.

Drop him a line by email/phone and he'll get to you asap. Good luck!

When you plug in the tuner - it will pull to stock "SAI" tune and store it on the tuner. You'll never lose it. You just might not go back to it after you change it.

 

From the research I've been doing - this is probably best bang for the buck and is an almost instant improvement.

I'm changing from 3:55s to 3:73s and will need to get a custom tune in order to recalibrate the computer for the gear difference.

 

I can't wait to get everything done - I finally found a place in my area that I can use for dyno runs. I plan to do a dyno pull with my current set up to see if the exhaust I changed to actually gained me some HP/TQ (sure feels like it did) over what the average 'stock' SGT's have been coming back with.

 

I've found that Bama Chips has been one of the more popular go to tuners on the forum.

 

Good luck!

Thank you all for your input. I have called and emailed; he may very well be out of town or otherwise unavailable.

 

I'll post when I do get it, I'm sure the improvement will be quite noticeable.

Just spoke to Doug - he said it'll ship out in the AM - I went with the 91 tunes only because I spend alot of time out West & at high elevation; anything over 91 octane is rarely available and I did't want to run into any problems whatsoever.

 

thanks again y'all!!!

That's good to hear Tommy. Glad Doug didn't go permanently AWOL! I also have the 91 custom race tune and I'm making 337 at the wheels with it (among lots of other mods).

Enjoy!

Yeah - apparently he was here in FL all week for some dyno sessions, and disconnected his home phone because folks were calling him at all hours of the night to ask questions.......:)

Ken-

 

What are your mods to get to 337? I'd be interested in reading up on those.

 

Thanks!!
