matmatician Hey Robinson,

The 2 best places I have found are FSwerks (very reputable, very good with the focus) and Central Florida Motorsports. If they don't have a part for your car, it probably doesn't exist. TireRack is great for Wheels, Tires, Suspension, and Brakes as well.

Also, next time, feel free to start a new thread instead of commenting on an existing one, you'll get more answers that way. Or, in case you didnt see it, there is a search function too :P

Welcome to Focus Fanatics!!

d20foci I just got toms base tune yesterday. He replies to emails and stays in contact to do the job the right way and told me a few things to change. I have 3 kids and work 7days aweek. He took over my laptop fixed my datalog list at 9pm! Your not getting that support from others!

Tom and I are currently working on the issues. Since the upstream O2 sensor is original to the car, I am going to replace that this weekend and then send him another datalog. I may check back with you if that does not work. Thanks.

After loading the tune, the car runs 100% better off the line but has the following problems:

1. Every now and then, when I push in the clutch when coming to a stop, RPMs immediately drop off and the car stalls. I pulled the IACV and cleaned it out.
2. When cruising at 50 - 60 mph, car has a definite stutter almost like a plug is misfiring.
3. Car throws a CEL. If I remember correctly, it was P0133 having to do with the upstream O2 sensor.

I finally went back to the old tune and don't have any of the problems with this other tune. After running the old tune for a few months, I tried reloading Tom's tune yesterday and problems 1 & 2 immediately came back. I am not taking anything away from Tom because I love how the car accelerates with his tune and he has been very responsive in trying to address these issues. Unfortunately, nothing shows up on a datalog to indicate what is causing these issues. Since I would love to go back to running his tune, has anyone else had similar issues for which they have found a solution? Thanks.
Have u datalogged with tom? If not, all u have is his base tune that he gives to everyone. To take full advantage of his tune, u need to datalog with him as everyones car is a lil different.
