Worse case scenario you run then in Windows 7 compatibility mode but I personally had no problem with foCCCus at least, on a Windows 10 preview...personally I wouldn't expect any issues.

There will be gains but powerband will be moved to an area not practical for daily driving, I wouldn't do it myself..but each to their own.

So tom...with tuning you are saying a 3" is not too big for a NA car, it gets good gains without a large low end loss.. If this is the case, this may change my mind....i do plan on header, possibly intake manifold
Mods or swap, and other things down the road.

With the higher compression I do feel with a header that 3 inch will show better gains on NA MK3 Focus

There was good gains on the 2002-2004 SVT from the stock header back going 3 inch , I think it was 7-9 that I saw to the wheels

I love the way it sounds, I would like to tune it just waiting on money. I was doing research on venturi devices to help with velocity if that was an issue. It's a touch loud read 56 db at idle to 87db full throttle.was thinking of putting a high flow cat on in efforts to quiet it a smidge ansand so that I don't get in trouble during emmisions
