The previous 2.0 Duratec was only available in the Focus and Transit Connect
I don't see how anyone could say "it doesn't make sense" that SCT doesn't tune for the 2.0.
You have to understand, in order for a company to make money, there has to be a market. The number of people who want to tune their 2012+ 2.0 Focus is actually very very very small and very likely limited to the members of this site. If SCT doesn't see that as a viable market, they won't put R&D into tuning the N/A Focus.
Plus, the chances that Ford even KEEPS the N/A engine are decreasing with every new model that offers EcoBoost. There's a really good chance that the current 2.0 will be short lived and replaced by a turbo 1.6
I'll turn that around on you... How does the ST make business sense then using that logic? Engine use is still limited especially with the transmission combo... Then the sheer volume of the ST comes into play...
