without either seriously building the motor or running some type of boost or power adder its pretty out of reach. not saying it cant be done.
Look at how much all those parts add up too, is the hunt for what little your going to gain vs the cost for parts worth it? the tune itself is going to run a minimum of 350 just for the tuning unit and a custom tune by a reputable tuner is going to add another 300-600 to that.
Not trying to dissuade you, just pointing out reality and sometimes reality sucks when the big picture (costs vs gains) is looked at.

Uhg, yeah, that's my problem. Every time I think about this, I want to sell my Focus and go buy a different car. One that'll be a hell of a lot faster.

But the Foc runs good, and mod'ing it would be fun. I just know it wouldn't make me all that fast, which just kills me to know that. So, I don't know what to do.



Also, here in Cali the highest rated fuel we have is 91 (out of 87 - 89 - 91), so what if I had my tuner tune me to 91 gas? How much difference would that make?
