Oh I wasn't saying that it doesn't already I was just wondering if that would help it even more than it already does or if it was solely for the manual foci.

I have a 2014 SE MT and haven't noticed anything that isn't normal for a car with a heavy flywheel. I think the only way to get this car to drop rpms quickly would be to lighten the flywheel and clutch. For me a few intake mods have made this car behave as it should.

Seems like the flywheel is like 30 lbs on the focus. I know there is a way to lower the RPM faster via tuning, Cobb did it on the ST.

Yeah I'm with you guys... can't believe it still hasn't been figured out yet by SCT. It's annoying as hell. Tom has changed the way mine shifts a little. The RPMs don't stop mid way now, they will go all the way down to idle. The trade off has been a slightly higher flair in RPM on gas off/clutch in though, which eats up time... so the shifts are still rough.

I think I e-mailed SCT 3 times about that yet. I will email them again. They need to wake up. Tom is doing an awesome job.

Tom what's your take on summer/winter tunes? Now that it's cold out, does that affect performance enough to warrant a tune adjustment? Fans, knocking, etc.

It shouldnt , the IAT tells the ECU what the temp is , you should feel better performance with it cooler

Yes please keep contacting SCT about this

The only thing you gain is noise and thst makes some people feel good. I'm tempted to go rent a dyno and post the results on youtube to prove my theory. the stock box is not that restricted you can go ask Tom or anyone else who will give you an honest opinion and they will tell you to leave the stock one on there and just do the tune. This might have been true on older cars who had restrictive intakes but at least with a focus the intake is very free flowing.the same applies to any cat back system unless you change the headers you are just throwing your money away
As far as intake goes, I can't really tell you if my butt Dyno is 100% calibrated properly. So I cant really say that iI've noticed a big difference in power with my new K&N typhoon. However, I do feel like the Power band is smoother and there is slightly better throttle response. One thing I can definitely say is this... my knew intake sounds beautiful. I have big plans for my mk3, very big plans.
