First try to install stock tune and see if that changes. Also you should always disconnect battery before installing 02.

Moved to "Focus Tuning Chat" as this seems to be a possible problem with the tuning.

The predator datalogs , I would use the predator and do some datalogging to see whats happening
I would first do like pasta said and remove the tune to see if the issue goes away

I didn't remove the tune yet but I did put new plugs in and I got new wires as well but they didn't fit the coil pack can't find a brand name on the cool pack looks like so eBay junk so within the week I'll be replacing the cool pack and wires but after replacing the plugs it does seem to run a lot smoother with no bucking or funky idle so I'm thinking the cool pack or wires are failing I'll keep u guys posted thanks
