The dawn of ST has complicated the ability for a performance company to develop model specific components. The perception is that most Focus enthusiasts will migrate to the performance model and leave the developed components to collect dust in inventory. IMHO , it is purely a business decision. What we need is a smaller more adaptable company to take interest.

Absolutely nothing. Why should I spend the money for what might not be worth the return on investment? I've been holding off, precisely because of this uncertainty on whether or not we'll have some engine management options.


I don't want to wind up in the same situation as Focusboy58, who's already dropped cash on a header, exhaust, intake, etc, but now can't tune to make the most of it. It is what it is, I guess. It doesn't make me hate my car, but it's disappointing.

FocusBoy58 WOW didnt Tom at FocusPower and I say this months ago that Roush will just screw us over like they did so many years ago. They are a bunch a d-heads and will always be in my book. Never get your hopes up for anything Roush says they will offer for a 4 cylinder car. Period

Edit: I think what we need is a stickied thread 'Do you want more aftermarket support? Contact these companies!", with the appropriate links. Not only will it prevent repeat 'is there ecu tuning' threads from people evidently unable to use the search function, but it'll be a nice way to keep attention focused on the issue of a lack of support.

sleepyboy I think the fact that aftermarket companies are stalling on the tuning for the new non-ST is probably due to them not wanting to deal with the tuning for the DCT?

TKE421 I'm in the same boat Comet...I can't stand not being able to fully make my focus my own, if there isn't tuning support in the next 2-3 months I will definitely be switching to the ST or something with decent aftermarket support....i.e. Dart....we have a lot of plans for N/A at this point but we won't mock up anything else till we have tuning as there will be no point in the application if the tuning is not there

BTW SCT pulled what 30hp out of the ST and it was all increased boost. Like COBB Tuning was saying there are more factors at work in this model.
But the car has been out for nearly two years. I don't see a legitimate reason for them having nothing available, short of them not planning to support it at all. Even if they weren't allowed to release tunes then they could have had it ready to go for after the release of the ST.

I know at the very least when this car is done for me, I'll be switching makes.
