Not sure if this has been mentioned but the tranny has to be in sport mode with the traction control turned off.

I get 2500 rpms, but that is what people get without the tune, except you.

Maybe the difference is that mine is a 14 and yours is a 12, along with the fact that I have the Aug'14 TSB installed? Can't believe I have the only focus with brake pedal override on the accelerator.

So I've got about 8 miles on the 93 octane tune. Pretty shocking haha! Definitely chirps second. Feels like it has wayyyy more balls than it did before.

I don't want to speak too soon, gonna let it sit for an hour or so, but it seems like the AC compressor wasn't turning on at all after I started it for the first time with the tune? I'm not worried yet, but otherwise, pretty damn amazing.

Yea, being able to chirp second is a great feeling coming from a car that looks this good, while getting 35-40mpg on the freeway.
