General tuning changes

To those who have tuned their focus themselves, what paramaters did you all change? I know thats a vague question and slightly depended on your mods, but generally speaking. I'm unfamilliar with this platform and SCT so I'm unsure of what tables can be changed. For example, a built engine with intake/exhaust/cam/header and mostly everything else stock, would if be safe to assume that most would only make slight changes to the VE table (assuming you can do that with a full SCT setup) and maybe bump up the idle. Also maybe slight changes to spark (assuming you tune it on a dyno) and maybe some torque managament changes (again, assuming this software has that capability). Anything else I'm leaving out?

How is that dataloger SCT uses? Does it provide histograms like HPTuners or do you have to manually check every spot on the graphs and make changes to each cell one by one?

I should meantion, its an 05 Duratec 2.0 if that matters much. Not sure if maybe never models have more accessable tables.
