Hi there, I have a 1996 Mustang GT. The owner before put long tube headers, H-pipe (no cats), and Magna-flow exhaust on it but left the rest of the car stock. He put the O2 sensors right back in without changing anything. My check engine light is always on saying I have O2 malfunction etc... depending on the weather and the moisture in the air, it seems like the engine is holding back and some what sputters. If I put the peddle to the floor, it will snap out of it. Is this an O2 sensor problem? Would the SCT X4 Tuner fix this?

The SCT X4 with SVE Custom Tune will indeed eliminate the Check engine light and PCM codes for the rear O2 sensor faults. However, the drivablity/sputtering is likely stemming from something else. You'll want to check and the overall "tune-up" of the car. Check and replace as needed your coil packs, plug wires, spark plugs, air filter, and fuel filter. I'd also suggest cleaning the MAF sensor element using electrical contact cleaner.

previous owner gave me a sct4 tuner like this but i dont have the usb cable, i was looking to buy a custom tune for my car since ive added more parts to it, but am curious if i can buy just the usb cable and a custom tune instead of buying another tuner, thanks

You do not have to buy a new tuner. Just purchase a micro USB to USB cable. I would take your tuner to Best Buy or similar store and make sure it fits.

Easiest solution would be to start over. There is typically no need to perform a KAM reset. Return your car to stock and reload your tune. Should fix everything up. While your car is returned to stock, that is an excellent opportunity to update your device.

I'm building the engine in a 2002 GT 5 MT. This engine will have 11cc forged Manley pistons and forged rods, TFS 44cc heads, and likely a Stage II cam. We are using the stock intake plenum and likely a fender well cold air kit. I also want to use this MAF: http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/item/M12579L54/Ford-Racing-Mustang-90mm-Mass-Air-Meter-MAF-96-04
Can you write a tune for this engine? I expect 350+ hp (crank) out of this combo.

hi i was wondering if i bought the tuner with the custom tune do i have to get the custom tune right away. i would rather get a few more upgrades done before tuning with the custom tune also right now all i have is a cold air intake and exhaust i should be able to pick from pre programmed tunes list for those mods

You do not have to take the tune right away, though you definitely could and see a gain over the pre-loaded tunes. Keep in mind, that after you are part of our SVE Tune family, any product you purchase from us that requires a tune update, we'll update it for free.

I own a 2000 mustang GT Automatic and its basically all stock with the exception of comp cams 262AH. The car stalls when shifting into a gear and stalls at a light. And not sure if its running lean or rich. Could you create a tune to solve these issues and have the car run optimal with these cams? Thank you in advance !

Yes, we would need all the info on the car to create the custom tune for it. Once you place the order we will send you over the tune form for it.

This tuner will allow for adjustment to accommodate 4:10 gears and get your speedometer reading correctly again. As for the shifting issue, I would ensure fluid levels are correct and if you have an aftermarket shifter, make sure the lockout bolts aren't adjusted too far in. If all is well there, you might have tired syncros.

No you should be just fine leaving the tune in the car. The sct also comes pre loaded with their tunes you would just select it vs the custom tune and select the 91 octane.
