Correct. http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...2&postcount=30

In addition if you look on ebay they're selling the injected focus.
Reserve wasn't met and sale ended.

I wonder what's up with the ie intake and header and exhaust and if they'll continue to Dyno it. Or if we're stuck to the few canned tunes it has.
They are still being worked on among other things

It would be great if injected can offer me a re flash to stock then I can Un marry the tuner and trade it in or sell it.

Please make that an option.
At least one car has been returned to stock and traded back to Ford for a Fusion.

Because I am looking for ways to turn my strategies back to 100% stock because of warranty issues that might occur with the newer Ford update strategies this gives you.

I do not want to be out $6000 worth of warranty. For not knowing this did not go back to 100% stock strategies for my 2013 Ford focus titanium hatchback.
Injected's tune is a perfectly fine DCT strategy. There would be no need to go in and get new strategies. I haven't perhaps driven for as many kilometres as others but have no issues.

Quote:
Thank you injected.

No doubt the tune is great for the dct and power band.

I would recommend to anyone out of warranty. Or has the new Ford strategies stock.
I recommend it too, but to everyone as it makes the DCT do what you want it to. My car bogged down in turns and was generally sluggish. With the tune I break traction changing from first to second in D. Mileage is the same or better even with my 19" wheels. The raw numbers can't convey the drivability improvements.

Injected tuner changed my strategy to newer Ford ones and the problem that I am worried about is Ford did not do the update and will know right away it wasn't a factory flash to the newer strategy codes.

I wonder if they will honor me a refund and return the tuner. I'd hate to be out of $400 and have something i was only able to have for 1 week

How is everyone's idle on cold start ups once the car warms up and settles down around 750rpms? Around 00:30-1:30?

Honestly never wait that long. Clutch in, push start button, shift reverse, clutch out, I'm gone.

If your talking about the some what rough and almost like it's missing idle I have experienced this two a couple of times. Not all the time and when not in idle I don't have an issue so I just ignore it

You hit the nail on the head. Only cold starts though it feels like it's slightly missing/rough. After a short stint of this it smooths itself out. I've noticed it regularly because I let the car warm up for at least a minute.
