what would i get out of a tune?

I have a 2.3dtech steeda intake, 2.5inc exhaust, header and motor mount would it be a good idea to tune it. And will this tune fix it from burning to rich? what hp gains would i see or would i just notcie some better driveability?

overall when u get a tune it change's the way the computer control's the engine and make's it more fun to drive

and with u amount of mod's i would say a tune would help and yes it will level out the A/F i would give focus sport or tom at focuspower a call cause out of all the focus tuner's those to are the best


PM honhon about his focuspower tune i have not seen a duratec on a focus power tune but i know honhon is happy with his

I say go for it too. I know Tom offers lifetime tune changes for when you mod it more (as long as you stay N/A). You probably won't see much power, but driveability will improve for sure.
