5 spd + sel = canada

1turbofocus You guys and your "cammed tunes" I have worked a good bit all ready with the Mazda engine which is what is now in the o12 Focus it will be interesting to see what SCT comes up for software for tuning the ECU

The ecoboost engines are as follows: The 3.5L is a twin turbo, the 2.0L is a single turbo.

Nah, just flash it back to stock before you take it for warranty...

I'm hoping this new motor is as tunable as the 3.7 and 5.0 mustang motors are. Those engines with similar VVT have proven very tunable. I wonder if they can do a cammed tune on a 4 cylinder? haha.

Gobird If I do anything after it's out of warranty, I may put a CAI and Borla catback on. Same as I did on my 02 Bird.

Jdog913 It has 12:1 Compression using a higher octane fuel may help gain some extra ponies.

CrashDummy It might be a little while for some things to come out for the 2012 Focus, especially things that the Ford techs will install for you. I'm not sure how much has come out for the fiesta yet, but that's probably a good estimator. It's been out for over a year now and they're really only starting to scratch the surface with it. I think Ford Racing only has a suspension kit out for it as of now, though Steeda has a few more bits, but that's not really the same.

warneej Yes parts will eventually come out. I'd imagine FSWERKS will be first with their Ford connections.
