Cobb is one of the few companies that has, from the beginning, stated they're only doing the ST

It really makes no sense why they'd limit the profits they could be making by ignoring us.

Keep in mind if a company is doing r&d they're not going to say anything before any public release. Also, it took a couple of years for any aftermarket support for earlier generations of foci, so before anyone starts a campaign to blackball sct, maybe a little patience would be in order. Besides, writing a tune for y'alls engine can't be easy, from all accounts.

I understand the concept, but in that case I would expect a "No Comment", not a "No plans or ETA at this time" statement. This in light of previous statements where they were indeed working on the car, and where a forum members car was being used for testing.

Precisely. SCT has told many 2012+ non-ST owners that they were working on developing a tune, or at least needed cars for R&D work. I've made quite a few posts on their facebook page in support of a tune for the n/a Ti-VCT engine.

This about-face by them, while not totally surprising, is very disappointing.
