Ripped_06_ST From what i have heard (I may be wrong) if you install a vavle body in your automatic 2.3L Focus, you will chirp second gear. Also in a 2.3L auto you can go about 38-40 Miles per hour in first gear, cause I have already tried it...LOL

Lucidity Taking O/D off really helps, so make sure to do that if you didn't already.

P0WeRbyDuratec torradan the sct xcal 2s that marcy motorsports as well as hypnotic sell will allow us atxers to recalibrate your shift points (via mph), your best bet is to try something like that. Personally i will be buying myself a tune this winter as well. (as soon as i start making money). So when i get it maybe i can figuare out what makes the best shift points. But thats another project by itself.

probably something along those lines. Probably kill my warranty if I cracked the transmission open to put one of these in.. so I think I'll just stick with getting a tune in the spring before the season starts back up.

You think you could go into some detail about that? I also drive an auto and I'm kinda in the same boat as torradan.

DrkKnight614 ^^^^that would actually make sense....b/c then youll stay in the lower gears longer and ull keep the revs i dont really see the need to go into 4th gear on an autocross course. But yeah a chip will definitly do wonders.

Lil PZEV I've Heard that in certain situations the auto can be good, because it can shift faster than any human with a clutch can...

Not sure if that refers to the Focus though, or like Porsches and such. I've also heard you're supposed to turn off OD... but that's it.
