Don't think fairness really enters into the picture. They have a business to run, it will cost XX dollars to crack the NA Focus and develop a tune for it, then they have to hope they can recoup the costs from tuners who are willing to pay for it... maybe they did the market research and decided it would be unprofitable. Who knows. I can assure you, if there was enough money to be made and a high enough demand, someone would develop a tune for the NA.

Despite the exponentially higher volume and larger potential customer base they assume that its the other way around and that the rarer car will actually sell a higher number of tunes, which seems counter intuitive to enthusiasts. But apparently not enough demand was shown, crossed with them not wanting to touch the NA to create a car capable of keeping up with the stock ST.

I would venture to say that it is because 99% of the people that buy the NA Focus are looking for great gas mileage in a good commuter car..They are NOT looking to make them performance cars so the market is not there for them...

True story, I have had my ST for two weeks and the invisible bra, swizol shield wax and winter tires are the only things I'm doing before winter hits. And I don't really have the money for either but I need to be protecting this car before the first winter.
