The SCT tune for the ST is available now, btw. One of the guys over on FSTN just installed the tune on his ST. Thread here.
I'm not that convinced that the ST ECU logic is all that close to ours. As I've been reading the ST does not use a MAF sensor, only a MAP sensor. We obviously have a MAF sensor. So right off the bat our tuning logic is going to be drastically different.

Awesome...

I saw an interesting post by FSWERKS about them not having the SCT tunes yet. At least it's good to know someone is doing them.

FSWERKS is running an awesome pre-sale on the SCT ST tuner though.

Sonic_HedgeHog SCT is days away from an ST tune for the masses (they have already tuned one ST, just working bugs out) but still mum on anything for the NA Mk3 Foci

matmatician Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a "superchip." In fact, our cars dont use "chips" at all. The way to upgrade the ECU is to have it tuned. No crazy 60 horsepower gains by simply dropping a new chip in, as some places seem to claim.

For you, an FSwerks exhaust is probably a better route. I'm not even sure the 2012's can accept ECU tunes yet, although I"m not sure on that. Someone should chime in here and let me know if I'm wrong though.

Performance upgrade question

Does anyone know how hp can we get just by tuned the car with a superchip?

Do we get more hp with the fswerks stealth exhaust?
