I would say yes , I would also add a wide band AF so your tune can be done so you get the safest and best tune you can

I charge 399.00 and 20/00 for shipping the xcal3 and you get free updates as you add more mods

Definitely worth getting a tune, and with you being in PA your only a hop, skip, and a jump from the East Coast's best Focus tuners with McNews Automotive located just to the west of Harrisburg. They do dyno tunes only, no remote tuning. Where in PA are you from?

Do you have an XCAL yet? I can't remember off the top of my head their hourly dyno tuning rate but their phone number is (717)432-9503 or as sometimes the line is busy (717)432-2686.

They are good tuners, they've tuned numerous Foci in the Mid-Atlantic and North-East

Give them a call at either of these two numbers: (717)432-9503 or (717)432-2686

There are hourly tuning fees and I can't remember the pricing off the top of my head.
