Once there is any kind of tuning, alot of things will suddenly become possible.
I used to be a ford guy then I got into Subaru's and now I'm back on Fords.
Subaru's have ecu tuning options for every year model year after 1996. Hundreds if not thousands of builds have happened/are happening.
With variable intake and exhaust cam adjustments possible in the Ti-VCT combined with COP & GDI a great deal of tuning adjustments should be possible. As soon as there is ANY tuning options for the stock ECU/ECM/PCM.
The other option would be to look into some kind of standalone ecu like hydra. Except that it would most likely disable any factory equipment that ford has chosen to drive using functionality in the ECU/ECM//PCM/TCM.
Its possible that now that the ST is out in the wild that tuning options for the ST will be developed that will be compatible with the NA Ti-VCT engine. I would not once ever put a supercharger or turbo on a car that couldnt be tuned for it. NEVER NEVER Never.
Its kind of a hurry up and wait thing.
