focus sport tune or performance shop tune

i was going to buy the focus sport tune...but a local shop (evolution performance) said they will tune the car for 400 that includes 3 pulls and the tuner should i do that or get the general tune from focus sport...im thinking that i would maybe get more out of the performance shop tune bc they can see all my data on the computer...u thoughts please would be greatly appreciated

ive herad the focus ECU is tricky to tune if you dont know what your doing. I'd prolly check to see is they have tuned focuses before.

Focus sport does a good rep. But also Tom from focus power can hook you up and you would have no worries. Plus he offers free updates as long as you stay NA, i think.

I wouldnt go fs , I would go with my tune from focus-power

I charge 399.00 and 20.00 for shipping but with getting it from me you dont pay extra for options and you get FREE updates as you add more mods and I have been tuning the Focus much longer then anyone else out there

lol youre a little biased Tom.

IMO the best place to get tunes from is from Randy at FSWerks, formerly Focussport. dont go to a shop unless they have ALOT of experience with the Ford Focus.

from what ive seen and heard and experienced myself, Randy does a great job. there are so many threads with people so happy about their tune from him

FSWerks xcal with tune costs $379 with FREE shipping.

and here is an example of a fswerks tuned car with your motor and an intake an exhaust. the only thing changed was the tune.



havent really seen any dynos of duratec tuned by Tom, or actually seen anyone driving a duratec with his tune, but im sure some are out there.

LOL Im very biased LOL

You gave the fs price but you failed to mention that he charges you again if say you change header and need an updated tune , this could get very costly

It was brought to my attention that I may have posted some incorrect pricing for fs tuning :Looking into that now

Tom
oh tom you silly sally giving out wrong information.

fswerks charges $379 + free shipping which is $40 less than you charge.

fswerks doesnít charge anything extra for options. its all included in the price of a program.

a completely new program from fswerks is $35. most people donít even order more than 2 programs in the life of their car.

and also FSWerks has been tuning the 2008-2009 since around july 07. thatís when they got the stc car that they turbo'd and were pushing 396whp with and won the competition. they didnít release a tune to the public due to SCT not having datalogging available yet and they didnít want to sell a tune without having datalogging capability.

also FSWerks has been working on the duratec focus for a VERY long time. you cant really brag about having more experience with the duratec. id be willing to bet fswerks has more tunes out there than you do.

tom give out the facts as they are so you dont look like a biased jerk promoting only your product.

whoa, I think we might of gone off topic a bit. Basically I think the best idea is stick with some one reputable and that works on focuses all the time.

Go with focus power or FSWerks. Personally when i get my turbo setup in i'm taking my car up to McNews (1 hr and 20 mins away) to have them tune it.

If thats there prices I stand corrected , I was going off what others had told me thay paid when going to my tune

I have customers that are at 5 and 6 updates , even at 2 updates mine is a savings of 30.00 , Most dont update AS THEY SHOULD because they dont want to pay the extra not because an update isnt needed

As for the Duratec engine I have been building and tuning them sence mid 2001 , I have dozens of them in NA 240HP and about 14 of them turbocharged from 240 to 365HP

Yes they may have done more that debateable , I go for quality not quanity
