tune causing rough idle and vacuum drop?

ok so SCT told me to get a tune from More power tuning, just untill i can have tom do my turbo tune, the first tune they sent me the idle was funy and my vacuum would drop but out of idle the car would perform really well, now the updated tune after the datalog is doing it as well, like it seems to be skippy at idle. the guy tuning also asked for b2 short term and long term on my data logs but the b2 fuel trim says invalid when i go to monitor it. is this just happening because the tunes a base tune and needs to be adjusted with datalogs?

SCT told you to go to a shop some where to get a tune and gave you the name of the shop? Who did you talk to at SCT ?

I would contact your tuner

SCT doesn't tell people where to go. If a customer calls in and asks where they can go to get either a device or tune, the first thing the tech is SUPPOSED to do is get the customers zip code and refer them to someone near by. If there is not a dealer close they should refer to either a specialist based on the customers particular vehicle or someone they know is competent to tune the vehicle.

In this instance I have a problem with where they "told" you to go for reasons I cannot go into here (has nothing to do with you tom.)

For the record I am not one of the techs; I am in a different department...the calibrations deparment. We are the ones who actually tune the vehicles and the techs answer phones. I offered to help you, you didn't respond and chose to go to someone else and now you have problems. It's obvious who you went to has no clue as they are asking for a B2 reading which the focus does not have.

You're going to have to work this one with your tuner now. And I will be addressing this with the techs because what they have done so far is wrong.
