Tom all the way!!
He is very easy to get ahold of. Service is awesome and the tunes are even better.
I have been running my 01 with a roush turbo kit for a total time of about 7 months. It started with 7psi,then 9psi, now im at 11, and this week i plan to go to 14psi. My car sees WOT literally every day and my car still runs perfect.

The only con i have is that tom is a little bias and somtimes wont let the customer do his own thing. He wont give me a launch control so i can pull more consistant 60's.

I voted for Tom (big surprise there) I went with Toms tune in the beginning and I was very satisfied with it.

BUT once I started doing my own tuning and I started getting good at it I now run 03OrangeSVT's super duper kick ass in your face tune!!!!

MY VOTE - FSWerks AKA RANDY

First things first- My car is a 2006ST 2.3 bought it brand new. I purchased the FS Turbo kit and I installed it on when the car had only 18,000 miles. The motor went to ~101,000miles running stage 2 kit 11psi.

That's over 83,000 turbo miles... with Randy's Tune.... talk about longevity and durability!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Over the last year I have been building up a spare 2.3 motor fully built by Vik at FSWerks and he did an excellent job. I recently dropped the motor in over the winter. The old motor was still cranking out pushing 11psi on the FSWerks stage 2 turbo kit with no issues when I replaced it.

The new motor is tuned by Randy at FSWerks and has a few hundred miles on it. I have yet to fully dial the motor in since I now live in an apt in a different state driving my other car and bike while the focus is siting in my garage at my house. Im going home this weekend and look forward to driving the beast.

......
Edit to be nice....

That said FSWerks is the best way to go.

I cant say anything bad about Tom's tuning, seems to work for me and he wouldn't let my car go home until it he was happy with it....That's saying something...

Dont have anything against the other alternative either...well...except that Orange tune...

Please don't be ignorant and say something like that; if you have nothing good to say, then don't say anything at all. We haven't seen anyone bash on anyone up until now, so please be respectful and only deal with the facts, not your personal feelings.
The poster asked opinions about the tunes, not the reasons to dislike someone.

Thanks,
Rich

I'm going on year 2 with a Custom Tune from Tom and haven't had any problems at all with it. And I definitely like the free updates as long as your Naturally Aspirated.

Thank you Tom for your contribution here along with your service .
