I don't know if some of you guys know but FSWerks aka Eurosport, have been featured in countless VW magazines. They have won Ford design awards and countless other awards.

Why would you not go with FSW?!

My vote went to them!
Because Focus-Power has been tuning years longer then FS , the Focus isnt a VW so what they do there is worthless to Focus people

Focus Power has had , Feature / Centerfold in

Sport Compact Cars - Feature and centerfold
Muscle Muscle Mustang & Fast Fords (total of 28+ times)
Tire Track
Hot Rod Mag
Focus Mag

TV with
My Classic Cars
Hot Rod TV


Focus-Power was the first to
Fully properly tune a Focus ZX3
Fully properly tune a SVT

Get to 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 700 HP
First to turbo charge a SVT


And many many others , Just because I dont talk about the things I do all the time doesnt mean I have done things

In the end it comes down to who has the best tune , Not who has the most things to brag about and I feel Focus-Power has the best tune and they offer free updates where you have to pay & pay & pay with fs

I'm but anyway...

How is it worthless if its the same company?

FSWerks is Eurosport and Eurosport is FSWerks. The same guys work on the same cars regardless if its a Ford or VW.

And just because you've been in the business of tuning longer doesn't mean you offer a better product. Expierence counts, Yes, but its not what all people look for. They want good customer service, and a reliable company.

I also get free update from FSWerks. Its not widely known that FSW offers free updates, but they do.

FSW for me. Have no issues with Tom's tuning ability, just have gone through 4-5 setups and had Randy tune from the get-go since the first kit was the VF/FS SC kit. I was very satisfied with the driveability of that kit so I stuck with him for the duration of my Foci ownership.

Tom

not true. After purchasing the FSWerks turbo kit, I have done a motor swap, added a cosworth manifold, changed filters, exhaust setup, fuel injectors, etc and NEVER DID I PAY FOR ADDITIONAL TUNING FOR ANY ENGINE HARDWARE CHANGES I MADE. And I have done over 20 dyno pulls on FSWerk's dyno in addition to whatever time Randy had spent programming before dynoing and adjusting. It has never been any extra money out-of-pocket, so your statement is just plain not true.

i voted for fsworks since i went with their tuning. i had looked into tom's originally but when i started asking for dyno charts for all the things he says he's done he got defensive and wouldn't show me any. i asked fs the same thing and had dyno charts emailed to me within a day. i just like to see results and not given the run around. also ive dealt with other one man operations before liike f2 and i just can't deal with that. if one person is sick or dealiing with family problems or is on vacation the whole company shouldn't shut down. i know this might not be the popular attitude, but thats my opinion.

ive been pretty happy with the fs stuff so far and will continue to do business with them for future purchases i'd say.

oh and i haven't been charged for any updates either.

FSWerks FTW! After I bought the turbo kit and suspension, I've never had to pay another dime for anything... Customer service has been second to none. Randy is just plain and simple, a great guy to talk with about the focus or just nonchalant everyday things. I've had thousands in tunes thrown at me, including some experimental ones which were fun to play with. Had a cracked manifold problem due to a crappy engine mount and they sent me a brand new manifold free of charge! Also I think I was one of the a very very few number of ATX turbos, and it didn't take much to get it tuned in from afar. Now if someone can offer all of those services, with a smile, I'd like to hear it!
