No tuning means you can't run out and throw a turbocharger on it, etc.

Is there going to be any possibility of a tune coming out for our cars? It seems like what I've read on the threads, a tune isn't very likely. Have you read or heard of anything different?

I haven't heard anything to say that it would happen any time soon at least.

A good performance mod for my 12 would be headlight bulbs, they are currently limiting my performance.

I meant moderators, please come in and clean up this thread and make it look presentable to any guest who may be curious about how to maximize horsepower in their brand new focus. I would hate to see a new user go elsewhere because a few people's bickering.

But yes, i/e/h has worked wonders for me!! I agree!

This could make the focus go faster:

Do the snorkel delete and a K&N, and start saving money if you want to do more than that.
A grand and a couple weekends could get you breathing a little better.
A 50 shot of nitrous if you only want a once in a while boost when you need it might not spray $100 bills in the form of melted internals out of your bottom end.
You probably can turbo without a tune, up to a modest boost, but your probably gonna eat an engine or two working it all out cause it's all trial and error, mostly error.
Or maybe you can figure out how to transplant a mazda CX-9 into a focus?
