Yea, a reflash for your pcm is worth it. I'd do a intake also.

Moved to "Focus Tuning Chat". Yes to the tune, and no to the chip.

a tune and a intake seems the way to go. worth spending 600 bucks for a full exhaust to?

Larger change in sound than power with the exhaust.

$ vs. fun might better use that towards tires/wheels/suspension.

i got a custom tune from tom, who is a poster on here who sells flash device's and tunes. And he custom tuned my car, from thousands of miles away, as he is from the states, and im living in london, he can data log you using software, and uploading your results to his computer, via email correspondence, get at him for more details

his name on here is 1turbofocus
