Since I've swapped my manifold out for the CJ, my car has run pretty rough. It bounces like crazy at idle, especially during cold start, then when I'm cruising it surges/bounces just enough to make you go crazy. I'm working with BAMA to get it worked out, and with every revision it gets a little better. Just wondering if any of you guys have had similar issues that turned out to not to be tune related? I've checked all my lines for leaks, so it's not vacuum.

Here's a list of mods: CJ intake with twin 67mm TB from CFM, JLT CJ CAI, JBA long tubes with catted h, factory over axles, and flowmaster American thunders.

2014 GT, haven't gotten around to changing my sig and stuff.

Yep, do a search and it's common. Jon Lund has this down pat from what I hear, a lot of data logging needed though.

Auto or manual? I suspect your choice of cai may also be an issue if an auto.

Have you been data logging the car or just getting revisions?

Hey Punisher - Sorry to hear about the trouble you're having here! Despite the CJ being a pretty heavy duty intake mani this is super basic for the Bama Team and I'd like to look into your logs personally with Paul - We just had Justin from Bama's '13 GT set up last week (Check out the video below) and I'm confident that they'll be able to get this sorted for you. Shoot me a PM with either your order number or your ticket number and I'll get on this right now for you!

Well I see the main problem but I'll keep my mouth shut. Definitely going to take some logs to get it set up right.

Paul has my most recent logs. He's been awesome about working with me on it.
I just wondered if anyone had found the issue to be anything other than tune related, but it seems that it's just going to take a lot of back and forth with Revisions and logs, but we will get it ironed out. It doesn't help that I'm using a twin 67mm over the super CJ TB. I love the set up, just ready to get the power smoothed out.

Cheap **** throttle body
Cheap **** CAI
Cheap **** calibration



Results=unsatisfactory
Imagine that.
:lmao

I was waiting for someone to say it. Really though, you bought basically the bottom of the barrel supporting mods. That's why.

Hey -

Received and replied to your PM - You'll be in good shape soon and I'll make sure that Paul and the Bama Team get their eyes on this right now. Don't hesitate to let me know if you're to have any other questions in the meantime and I'm here to help!

I keep hearing people bashing bama tunes.

some who I think probably have never had one on their car or for that matter have ever had their car tuned.

It's really unfortunate.

Lots and lots of logs. Hope you get it sorted!

JLT cai is also known to be kiiiiiinda sub par as far as quality goes.
Only kinda? JLT products for the 2011+ are ****.

Then there are those of us who have had, and are now not.
