Exclamation desperate need of a tune:(

I've recently my stock 2.0L zx3 with,
1)Ford Focus SVT long tube header
2)CFM 2 1/2 inch SVT Focus Offroad Pipe
3)CFM 2 1/2 inch Stainless Flexpipe
4)Ford Racing Borla 2.5 inch Exhaust

Ever since I put the following parts on my car the RPM at idle fluctuates between 800 and 1500rpm. I was wondering what the best possible solution would be for me?
My check engine light is on as well and I have an inspection in 3 months that I need to pass in NC.

all the exhaust stuff will lean your car out. the computer is probably trying to compensate for it. a tune is definately what you need

He sends you the SCT flasher pretty quick I think, then you work out a time to do some datalogs and him tune your tune.

Read his section Focus Power.
