Thumbs up Review: FS SCT x3 tune for 2005 zx3

Thought I contribute and post my review of FocusSport Sct X3.
I drive a 2005 ZX3 manual in California.
Mods include Roush exhaust and custom short ram intake.
I had to clear DTC codes before the tune would download into the PCM. After driving around town I must say I was happy with the buy. It added only about 5 HP and 5 Trq this is only a guess. However, the car seems more alive and there is NO more lag at low RPM's. The tune really made the car more fun to drive. I approve.

great to hear.. yeah you may gain peak hp/tq ratings of about 5, but across the whole RPM band youll gain alot.. some people gain 10+ in some parts of the rpm band

Cool !!! I would like to get a tune after I put a few more parts on my zx3. Especially to firm up the shifts from the atx. I will keep the FS Sct x3 in mind
