Had to look at Steeda's site to see what they were offering, hadn't had much in the past.

I see they'll sell you an SCT device with the tunes it may come with, and maybe one of theirs IF they happen to have one for the setup you're running (mild mods only).

Tom's service is Full Custom Lifetime including any N/A mods you may do, extra for forced induction tunes if you go that route. Pretty hard to beat that deal.

Drive it to their facility & they'll do you a Custom one....

Don't know what they charge for that. Excluded from what they're advertising when selling the new Xcal 4, note the ad doesn't even promise a "tune" from them.

I do Custom tuning , steeda does canned tuning

Custom tuning is where your tuner sends you a tune file then you send him datalogs and he makes changes for your Focus , your driving style and likes and your mods

Canned tuning is your tuner sends you a tune that he sends to everyone else

I also offer free tune updates as you add more NA mods and I can remote into your laptop in the Focus and set up the log list and do the first datalog like I was sitting in the Focus with you

I sent Steeda datalogs (for my Mustang tune) and they were happy to tweak it.

Thanks for the info, it seems like you have the better deal. i don't want a canned tune i didn't know that's all they offered. i already have an x3 device that i used on m f150. i will contact you when i'm ready to purchase the tune.

Check with them and see if they now do datalogging on there tunes , see if they offer free tune udates as you add more NA mods , maybe things have changed , I do know they dont have the experience tuning the Focus that I do

We do custom tunes for your set-up. We send you a questionnaire & based on your mods ... we will write the tune specific to your set-up.

Also, when you order a tune from Steeda ... you are enrolled in our tunes for life program. If you need a tune revision down the road, well re-tune it for free.

We have great tuners on hand ... if you would like me to put you in contact with our lead tuner ... let me know! You can reach me at tim@steeda.com.

Best Regards,

TJ
