Whats the best performance chip that i should get for my 2010 ses???
 
im looking around but i cant decide whether i should get a stage 1 or stage 2. and also i dont want to get scammed so does anyone have any ideas of a good performance chip i can buy?

stage 1? stage 2? lol.

youll need a SCT XCal, whatever chip youre looking at is garbage

mikebontoft 10-05-2011 07:44 PM

yup more than likely garbage. focus computers are non-chippable. you need a tuner.

Anyone who tries to sell You a chip is trying to rip You off, plain and simple.

^^That would be the correct tuning device, yes. Search for Username: "1turbofocus", or go to the Focus-Power subforum CLICK HERE. Tom has been writing tunes and working on Fords for a looong time(and Foci from the beginning) and is one of, if not the, best in the business.

Would a tune help if you only have a SRI and exhaust with no other engine mods?

Incredibly so.
Your Car will seem like a different animal.
And Tom is just AWESOME to deal with.
