Twenty The car has now received a new tune!



I picked up a tuner from Rebel Devil and had a custom tune put together for 91 octane. Combined with the header the car is definitely stronger as compared to before and so far my fuel mileage is the same or possibly even better! I don't have too many kilometers behind the wheel with the new tune yet but I've taken a couple of friends for rides and they're impressed with it too.

that's pretty cool! could you post more pics of the engine cover up close. I always wondered why Steeda or Fswerks didn't over one for the new focus like they did the previous duratec.
The car definitely feels stronger now. I don't know what the actual figures are but it's a noticeable difference. Once the tune's on it should be even better.

And speaking of, I see I forgot to answer that one! The tune is Rebel Devil's.

I can get some more photos of it - I don't actually have many.

Nope, we took it out the top instead as I really didn't want to mess up my alignment. A number of pieces had to be removed and the engine had to be slid forward, but it was worth it.

Yup, exhaust is OEM ST, albeit lengthened for the sedan body.
