So I'm trying to split flames and pop and bang for the day... I have an SCT x4, any suggestions on how to make it rich enough to split flames? I'm not a tuner I have no idea what to adjust.

would bama make something like this?

They would have the software to be able to do it but i highly dought they would make a tune like that for a customer. Too many chances of something going wrong. If you really want to make your car do those things your gonna end up having to buy the racer package or HP tuners that provides you with the software to tune your own car with all the option. You would also mostly likely need to learn how to use the program to be able to find out how to make your car do that.

You could get a loppy idle tune that makes it sound like you have nasty cams. That sounds pretty good
You can't do that with our cars. Only the 11+ because they have the variable cam timing.

OP, what you want to do requires a two step. It's not in the tune. It's a rev limiter and the flames are caused by unburnt fuel building up in exhaust system. It's also not easy on chambered mufflers and timing components.

WTF is this thread real or trolling..

OP you need a 2 step..

You can't do "lope tunes" without variable cam timing, so only the 2011+ mustangs can do it..

No tuner in their right mind is going to give you a tune rich enough to split flames, you'll wash down the cyliners and nuke the engine..

Thanks for the correction on the loppy idle tune no longer works for the 15-17 cars.
