Tom said it best, but I'll go ahead and give my 2 cents. Even before you get any mods a tune will help you out a lot. You'll be able to run your SVTF on premium fuel (91 or 93 octane, depending on what you can get where you live) and meet its true factory potential. Also, like Tom said, you get free updates to your tunes if you order from him, so any bolt-ons you decide to get (intake, exhaust, etc.) can be installed one at a time, rather than worrying about trying to do it all at once.

I have my 2006 ZX3 tuned by Tom, and I love it. There's power that just wasn't there before, and the car is so much more fun to drive, even with just a cold air intake.

There are a couple other options out there for tuning, but if you are in the early stages of modifying your car, it's hard to disagree with free tune updates.

1turbofocus A tune does many things

Better take off
Better mid range power
Better over all driveability
Better idle
More performance and much much more

I charge 395.00 shipped for the SVT Focus and that comes with a full custom tune not the cookie cutter pre loaded tunes some shops send out , FREE updates as you add more mods , I was the first to tune the SVT Focus and I own one
