drostedrummer89 Is it auto or manual? My tune isn't finished yet, so i can't speak for the gains of a finished tune. However, installing the svt header has been the most powerful increase I have done, and I've tried alot of different parts. Short ram intake, volant intake, 3 other headers, 65 mm throttle body, exhaust, cams, underdrive pulley, and tuning. Svt header is the best mod so far, in addition to the larger exhaust.

1turbofocus Yes you will see some and every mod you add the tune will help even more and keep the engine safe

I hear most people say it the other way around, and that Dyno's are just a piece of paper of what the other guy before you made for HP, who had the exact same set-up?

drostedrummer89 honestly probably not worth your money if you aren't going to continue modding it. Its $420 for the tune, but you have to remember that its $200+ for a Wideband, which is basically required to remote tune. Also, I have spent lots of time and money hunting issues down keeping me from a good tune, like O2 sensors, knock sensors, and other misc. issues with the engine. So the price will go up if your engine isnt in perfect running condition. Not trying to talk you out of it, just don't think its 420 out the door.

I offer FREE tune updates so that people do tuning first and keep the engine safe why modding , when you add mods your load changes , timing changes , air fuel changes and in most cases with all the mods you added you have less power because there not working togather , a tune brings everything so it works with each other

If your looking for big power from a tune your not going to see it

BigRed03 you can search, and view the dyno thread, to obtain the results youre looking for.

To save you some trouble, its not much.

WHat should I expect?????

With a stock zetec aside from a resonator delete and cone filter on the maf tube what kind of hp and tq gains should I expect with the xcal3? What tune should I go with? I want max hp and good mpg at the same time Tom says he can write a tune to do that but what kind of increases will I get? I gotta take down this spivic that puffs his chest out. On the track ofcourse so if you have a tune what did you increase to???? Keep in mind pretty much bone stock zetec 2.0 what hp and tq gains do I have coming my way roughly and mpg if possible? I just don't want to blow 420$ when it could have been spent on something more powerful. ( I don't want to be loud ) I want to stay 100% stock aside from the tune
