I understand that, but your also going to have to replace your sparkplugs more often too as they will wear faster. And the more you tinker with that the more risk you run breaking a plug or causing damage Ford will not cover.

I would caution people to do a lot of research on any mod and if it comes down to it and the information provided is right then you can feel good that you did the right thing to your car.

Happy Tuning....

I asked Brandon from Steeda and he said as of right now they have no upcoming sales. The promotion they are talking about on FB is a giveaway.

So with all the dyno questions the GoFast team at Steeda said they dyno'd the Focus in 4th gear and it was an A/T.

Which even on the DCT auto trans 4th gear is the closest to a 1.1 gear ratio. So Steeda provided before and after numbers, and dynoed the car on a "DynoJet" in forth gear and still have mud slinged at them. I am going to +1 this thread haha

Thanks for finding that out Brabs_Weather
