OK guys--can we get a little reasonable about all of this? 25 pages of pissing, moaning, and d!ck measuring? Really? SCT DOES want our money, it's just going to take some time. I waited 4 years to get a good tune for my Ranger; XCal2 with 3 custom tunes by Doug Studdard at BamaChips (he's with American Muscle now, I believe). Let me say-it was worth the wait with the Ranger, and it will be worth the wait with the NA Focus.
Of course the tuner companies are going to focus on the ST first-its the performance model in the lineup, and therefore the people who buy them are going to be the most likely ones looking for a product that will help them get the most out of their vehicle. A higher percentage of ST owners will be looking for a tune; it has nothing to do with how many NA Focus' are sold compared to how many STs are sold; just hypothetical numbers here, but probably 75%+ of all ST owners will be looking for a tune for their car, whereas probably less than 5% of NA owners (they're the ones you see regularly on these forums, you know--us) will be looking for a tune. Look at it this way--there were tuners out for the 5.0 and the 4.6 in the Mustang GT pretty early on; ever see a tuner for the 3.8 V6? There might be a tune out there for it, but if there is, I'm pretty sure it came out a long time after the tune for the GTs did.
SCT is a great company-all of this bashing of them and their dealers is not going to help the cause one bit. Quit bitching for 10 minutes, pull the wheel and fender well liner off of your car and get the numbers that are needed off of your ECU so that a list can be compiled for SCT--be a part of the solution.
End of rant--flame away if you must.
