I live and work right off of HWY K as well. The south end of it is still pretty good to cruise on, but the north end has gotten congested and cops like to chill there.

I've heard of Turbo Connections here and there in passing, and seen the name over on STLSR. I've never heard anything about any actual work they've done, but if they are good with SCT and E85 tuning, I may have to look into them.

Yeah, no kidding. The traffic is rediculous . I dont know how good Turbo Connections is with the Focus, but he does tune with SCT on the mustangs,
He does have a web page , but it hasnt been updated in a while. But he is on top of his game on the e85 front. All his high HP vehicles are on Ethenol. But his shop is close to home. So its convieniant.

Not saying Turbo Connections is poor because I know nothing of them. But do your research and be sure.

In 2006 when I first turbo'ed the SVT a local shop I chose had never done a focus before, but plenty of mustangs, c6 vetts, Ford GT's ect... Everyone said to use Tom, but I chose what was more convenient instead of tom.

Car melted all 4 pistons 6 days later.....

Ever since Tom was involved haven't had a problem since, and he still helps to this day. Actually had a conversation over the phone with him today.

I would Remote tune with Tom IMO. Thats what I did on this dyno with Tom and still do updates on this dyno with him.

Oh yeah, Tom is still tuning mine also. I was only using their shop for the dyno.
And its a shame I am pulling this engine soon . But it has 147,xxx miles on it now. And he has it running so good right now its a blast. I am keeping the old one for a spare.
