Ok.

As for brands, I'm not sure. You could start with the typical google search, or try the generic brands like superchips and such.

Could be because it's brand new and more than likely not that much aftermarket support yet, though I don't know.

Generally speaking though a "chip" isn't going to be the best investment as they don't allow growth with your modifications with out pulling it and re flashing it at an extra cost and loss of tune during that process. I would say your best bet is to invest in a flash tuner, like the Superchips one for the Focus.

Just Googleing a bit and I found this one: http://forums.genvibe.com/zerothread?id=20250
Blue Crush is local to me and a really great guy. He may not know first hand what you may need but I'm sure he'd have some worthwhile advice.
