    Hi all
    I am fighting code problems since installing Ford racing cams..
    The car has full power and codes are not all the same...
    most common is getting P0011 and P0135 together then sometimes P0021 and P0155 together.. occassionally I get thrown in like randomly P0443 and P0645.

    I was wondering if could be some electrical issue as few of these are connected to fuse 47 ENG1 (P0011 P0135 P0443 and P0645) then fuse 40 is ENG2 and has the P0021 and P0155

    I have once got alternator code P0622 ..

    I have tune from American Muscle / Bama so lockout and tune should be delt with already. and the codes come randomly.. most common though is to see togeher P0011 and P0135

    am going bit mad trying to figure out something...
    all help apreciated

    Mmmm. That could be your problem right there. BAMA tunes have been hit and miss in the last few years (mostly miss) so I suggest you contact Lito and get a proper remote tune. You'll need to do some data logging so that he can dial the tune in properly, but I'll bet you'll be a very happy man when he's done. His real name is Manuel Pazo and his email is [email protected] . He's a busy guy and he's based in Venezuela, so he might be slow to respond.
    I noticed that you live in Dubai but your name sounds Icelandic. I lived in Al Ain for 11 years and know Dubai pretty well. Did you join any of the UAE-based Mustang clubs in Facebook. I'd recommend American Muscle UAE; they're a great bunch of guys. I even shipped my Mustang from the UAE to Cyprus when I moved four years ago.

    Thanks Dino for your input.. will try to contact Lito.
    And you are correct.. I am from Iceland but been on and off here in Dubai since 2003.
    I have not joined any UAE clubs yet. I was on a UAE Mustang forum which disappeared (Emirates Mustang Club) will search for the American Muscle UAE

    I used Lito on a 2007 GT with Ford comp cam, WMS cold air intake and long tube headers and Flow Master exhaust, extremely satisfied, you will need a SCT tuner as that is the only one he works with.

    Hi Charly.. thanks for this... will look for SCT tuner and then contact Lito. Did you use Lito from the start ? or did you start with something else and have problems ?

    I can tell you I started with Brenspeed for a SC, and headers, and then a year later, cams on my 05. The car ran terrible. The tune was so rich, the exhaust would burn your eyes. It also had to idle for almost ten minutes to warm up before I could back it out of a heated garage. They told me this was normal. After I contacted Lito, the car runs like a dream.

    Sounds like a cam is off a tooth.

    what are you using to upload the tune if you don't have a SCT?

    I attempted to use Accel tuner but it would not download existing tune as it was not the stock tune, I returned it and purchased a SCT unit. A previous owner had a SC on car and car was not retuned before I purchased the car.
    I read all reviews and Lito came up as the go to for S197 tunes, contacted him, ran a data log, he sent me a tune, ran another data log and Lito sent me an upgraded tune.
    The car runs great, idles nicely, set rev limiter at 6500, could not have asked for better results.

    With the SCT you can change other parameters like rear axle ratio, tire size, etc. if you can wait for sale.

    I already had reply from Lito. he says he can use my Bama Rev-X tuner as it is a SCT device... am now waiting to hear what more info he needs from me.. American Muscle customer support has also replied to me and told me that this cant be problem with the Bama Tune.. must be many different intermittent hardware problems going on and I should fix them first.. Lol you cant make up bullshit like this.. kind of thanks for nothing..

    Bama offers lifetime tunes because it will take them a lifetime to get it right. Just go with Lito and save yourself the time and money. He's a 3V guru.

    Bama=Lifetime of Headaches
    Lito=Lifetime of Reliable Fun
