Simple question that should have been brought up 2 years ago ...

You get 1 vote and I've included price points.

It isn't public, so you can be a cheap-ass or silver spoon.

Yes, not only would I buy a tuner from SCT for my 2.0L Ti-VCT Focus, but I would use it to get a custom tune from my local SCT-authorized tuning garage, of which there's one half-an-hour away from me. I would also spend additional money on other parts for my car.

The bottleneck is SCT. We're waiting.

I'd never purchase another sct product in my life, even of it spit out a gold brick every time I plugged it in.

I already have an SCT X3 and it was way less than $400.

All I need is a custom tune file and I'm golden.

Yes I would. I want tuning and I almost bought it when we thought SCT was for sure releasing tuning. Ill probably end up getting the device through focus-power as well as a custom tune :)

But lets be honest, I'd probably buy whatever device from whatever reputable tuning company comes out with an actual tune first.

This poll will show how less likely you'll see a tune when yes for under 400 is barely beating the no answers. I wouldn't hold my breath anymore.
