There is no 2013 calibration support at this time. When our 2013 Mustang GT gets delivered we will start looking at the unit and how it differs from the 2012 GT. We will keep you updated to our findings.

Best Regards,

TJ

Hi Tj . A Question.

1) Can the Cam tune be loaded with another tune from a different company ?
Ex : Bama street tune + Steeda Cam tune ?

Thanks i'm new at this tuning stuff.

So is it a problem if the car has a J-brand CAI on it? Its a silly question I know, but with all the drama regarding the CAI catfight, I did see some steeda notes about tuning out some low-end torque loss on the JLT unit.

I know a steeda unit would honestly be preferred, but for me I'm pretty settled with my setup other than wanting the tune.

Mycoolm3,

As long as the other tunes are an SCT recognized provider, like Bama is, you will not have any issue holding tunes from another manufacturer.

If you are asking if you can add the Steeda Cam Tune to an existing Bama Tune, then the question is No. The Cam Idle Tune is a complete seperate tune.

Best Regards,

TJ

There is no problem if your car has J brand intake. We wanted to show the differences in manufacturing, engineering, etc that make the Steeda intake a more valuable purchases.

As long as you are happy with your current set up then that is all that matters. In the future if you are looking to add another CAI and want to see the differnence the Steeda unit makes, then PM and we will get you taken care of.

Best Regards,

TJ

Gus can tune for Brand J with no problem and have tuned regular and boss intake combos but with stock cam timing. We have not tested the cam idle tune with brand J and with that intake I would imagine I am going to have some transitional issues on the low end that will take some work to fix. Might even have issues under deceleration that could lead to stalling.

Gus can work with you, but just know that there may be some additional timing that is needed in order to get it to cooperate.

Best Regards,

TJ

Well it was great the power increase is really nice. The cam idle sounds awesome too. I think it will sound even better when I add the BOSS quad exhaust.

Manual. I notice though with the tune your fuel consumption will rise dramatically.

Indeed!

It's not much but here's a quick video shortly after I installed it and took it for a test drive that day.
