I believe its $550 plus paypal fee. BUT its not 1 tune. You will spend weeks with him getting new tunes to make the car PERFECT. They are e mailed to you. Upload them to th xcal 3 run a datalog and e mail it back to him. Its real simple. You'll need to select a few things on the log list. Like fuel source stft1 maf counts fuel pressure wideband channel. And a couple more I am forgetting

ZXthrizzle05 If ur going to go cheap then do it but have a back up plan like say the turbo for one.....that's really the only thing I see going bad. It'd be good to have cpl cars for testers that way we can get like a sticky later maybe of real potential kit suppliers that require no modifications.

Jgrove998 ^My turbo kit was bought used off this Forum as well.

K26 I got a really good deal on a used fsw turbo kit. It was the best thing I have ever done to my car! Your gonna get a lot of opinions on here, its up to you on what route you like. I have done business with Tom and FSW and I have been satisfied with both.
If you want my 2cents buy a used kit off the forum before buying ebay stuff..

I figure by now someone must have, and you could buy almost 3 of these for the price of an FSWERKS kit so obviously there must be some huge differences.

I'm not opposed to spendnding money if I have to, and I don't mind doing a little work to save some either, If I bought this kit and the Turbo blew up 3 weeks after i installed it so i had to go and buy a different one I would still be ahead, what else in the kit is not up to par, and where could I get it tuned?
You could buy 100 of those kits and still never have the quality, tuning knowledge and customer service that you get from FSwerks.

I am not saying you couldn't "make" it work but having to constantly fix and tweak the kit will get old real fast, especially if its on your daily driver.

I ran my own custom setup for over 30k miles but there were parts (manifold, turbo, downpipe, etc) that I did not take a cheaper route on.

1turbofocus Diablosport does not make a tune for the Duratec Focus , I can sell you the xcal 3 and a full custom turbo tune for your car

Black00ZX3 looks like different turbos and you would need someone to tune your car, get the one made by sct.

Also my focus is stock, I'd imagine I would need a tuner like the diablosport intune I have for my mustang, who makes them for focus?

idobson You should ask them what if we buy 2, since i'm willing to be a beta tester :)
