sniper special forces tuning for zetec

Has anyone used this on a turbo zetec?

I have just purchased this and it allows tuning by using basic drop down menu's, it can be upgraded to the full pkg, equivelant to pro racer package.

It also allows you to tune 2 different ford vehicles.

A few have used it, most everyone hated it... there is very little support from sniper.

I wouldn't trust tuning a turbo vehicle from drop down menus.

There are still things that need to be fixed in the sniper , I would not use it or even think about using it to tune a turbocharged Focus , send it back

I have 8 psi wastegated te04h (small turbo) 42lb injectors and a lightning Maf.

Only way to go is blowthrough in my opinion

You need a proper tune and the sniper just will not give it to you

Just use the stock maf in a bigger housing, the whole thing about "matched" injectors and mafs is just a technique to use if you cant tune.
