Yes and Yes,
You asked in general and my response is not Focus specific.
Ease of work I guess depends in the chip design. My application allows changes with just the use of the gas pedal and a reader device. Chips have improved like most things. One chip for example allows user adjustments:
1 = WOT A/F Ratio - 1st/2nd gear
2 = WOT A/F Ratio - 3rd/4th gear
3 = Mid Boost A/F Ratio - all gears (part throttle)
4 = Base WOT fuel
5 = Spark Timing Offset - 1st/2nd gear
6 = Spark Timing Offset - 3rd/4th gear
7 = WOT TCC Lock MPH
8 = Base Mid Boost fuel (3 to 14psi)
I'm running in the 10's (not Focus) on a chip and love it. Most running faster go stand alone for complete control.
