Just installed my fswerks xcal 3 with 93 octane tune
 
just installed the tune with the xcal 3 from fswerks. had the aggressive shift points added. i can tell a difference but its not totally devastating... i guess i was just over amping it up and got too excited... car is definitely a little faster but i don't know... does it take time for the tune to truly affect? also im running wheels that are 22lbs each(getting new ones asap) would this be killing my performance? also have fswerks cai and a custom exhaust. looking to put on the f2 header next week will that make a drastic improvement also?

i dunno about the fswerks tune, since i don't have a tune yet but that will be my next mod. but i can tell you that if each of your rims weigh 22lbs, then the weight is parasitic on performance i used to have some 18" motegi rims that weighed 22lbs each. and i noticed as soon as i put them on that they killed my acceleration. needless to say i put my stock 15" rims back on for the time being. and immediately noticed improved acceleration. i will be getting some 15" rota slipstreams , which are supposedly only 12lbs per rim. as the stocks are roughly 15lbs. so yes the rims can effect your performance, i dunno about the header since i don't have one yet. but from what i have read it also improves performance.

Have your "tuner" change the settings for you on the trans , send him some datalogs so he can fine tune your tune and make sure everything is like it should be , its what you paid for

any added weight will affect performance for every 100 lbs is a tenth of a second

After trying several different tunes,Haltec, MBE and one stand alone from south africa,we went with Tom now on 10+ cars and just won for the second year in a row the SWD SCCA EP Championship including one track record that most thought would never fall! I am sure the other tuners on this site are good but Tom is the best.

Whats killing you is you have a Focus with an automatic tranny in it.... unless you spend a healthy sum of money its always gonna be slow.

I can understand what your saying, but from what ive gathered from multiple sites is that a tune is much more beneficial to an auto trans that a manual. Also heres an update to the thread. When i took off the 18"msr wheels and put on my new set of 16" rota slipstreams even with massive 205/60/16 tires its like a whole new car!! Its definately faster now. The tune most definately made a huge difference. when it shifts you can really feel the pull every gear! Im getting a Fswerks header and flexpipe this week and ill have to order a new tune which will be adjusted for the header and for the new tire size(= Can't wait to see what this bad boy will do then. Ive seen someone gain 16HP with dynos to prove it from adding the fs header and flexpipe.

Who has 93 octane? I'm still waiting on my F/W header & stealth muffler. Let us know how it run's w/ the header, huh.

I have a 91 octane tune, cause I don't know who has 93 octane in my area. All I found was 92.
