Which is what we have been trying to say for a long time, especially after they "cracked" an ST's PCM within days of the car being released.

They don't want to work on a tune for the N/A GDI Focus, only the niche ST which everyone is competing for a fraction of the 8000-10000 units to be built in 2013 vs a larger percentage of the over half a million MK3 units sold in North America alone so far. (Over 1 million globally in 2012 afaik).

Like I said in the Sonic lounge, if they make a tune for the Dart, I am over with them...

Matt, we have been working with the engineers at SCT and they said it will be a few months before they release the tuning abilities for those cars. Once they do, we will be able to build you custom tune files for it. Sorry but unless they add the car to the software we cannot build files for it.

You can tell from the response I received, it can be done, but SCT just has to have the desire to do so.

JMS was ready to get after it for me. I have used them before and they make some good products and are easy to work with. Their tunes might not be on the razor's edge, but usually have fantastic drivability, great power, and are reliable. Maybe not the most powerful, but you can count on them.

I believe they will jump right on the 2.0 Ti-VCT when they have the ability. I mean my gosh, they are already hooking this MAM device to the Focus to see if they can improve its drivability, etc.

Basically since they rely on SCT, we're boned.
