SCT X3 Tuner
 
I was contemplating ordering a tuner for my 2009 Ford Focus SES. My car is stock, but I plan to get an intake soon. Does this tuner make much of a difference in power and fuel economy? What options should I get loaded in the tune?

a tune will always make a difference because the stock ecu is tuned for economy not power lol.

you can go with 91 or 93 octane tune, raised rev limiter, proper calibration for your intake and/or header/exhaust system, aggressive shift at WOT (on automatic transmissions), etc.

I'm no expert so talk to Tom (1turbofocus) or focussport about your options.

it will make a difference however it'd be way more noticeable on an automatic.

You generally order a tune from a person that is a tuner, not from the company. Turbo Tom who is a vendor on here (among others) sells an XCal3 with his famous tune on it for a very reasonable price.

I'll move this to the ECU Tuning Chat for you.
