Tom is the man. Even 6+ years later he still updates the tune for new mods for you for FREE.

Tom is just a genuinely nice guy to boot. Great guy to talk with on the phone, and he's helped me figure out the ins and outs of tuning my own cars.

I'm a decent DIY tuner, but I can't do it all alone on some brand new cars. After the run around I've gotten from VW ECU tuners --I won't be buying anymore cars Tom can't help me with remotely when I get stuck until he retires.

It's $300-$500 for an N/A tune at most other shops, and most charge every time you want something changed. Tom does it better, and costs less. I can't say enough nice things about the man --if you need a tune for anything he tunes, don't even consider anything else. He's the best, and he's the most affordable. Period.

Tom's Tune

Tom is incredible! I emailed Tom regarding a question unrelated to tuning on my turbo'd Focci. After he answered my question we started talking about tuning and how much trouble I was having getting this car tuned. Tom stepped in and said that he would help me tune my car...FOR FREE! He helped me fix some issues that I was having that were even non-tune related! Bottom line Tom is the man! If you are having thoughts on having you car tuned, then think no more. Tom will get it done for you, has awesome customer support (for life), and will help with any issues you may have. Hands down will have future Focci tuned by Tom and Focus-Power!

Thumbs up Tom's Tunes

Tom is absolutely great!

He has worked with me for 3+ years and never let me down. He has solved many issues over emailing him my symptoms and saved med money and time at the dealership and mechanic shop.

Finally 4 years later, my ZX3 has 145,000 and runs better than it ever has.

Thank you Tom!

I have no complaints here. Just finished tuning my car with Tom and it went very well. I originally had it tuned in PA and was decently satisfied with the car, I ended up pulling my turbo setup off and going larger to an HY35 Holset. I could tell he had some experience when I sent him my modification list and he sent me back the first tune.....The car idled better than it ever had, even when it was tuned right on the dyno before. I don't believe I have ever heard audible knock while in the tuning process either, or any other time for that matter. Im running 30psi now and it pulls solid and smooth. Idle and Cruise feel just as good or better than factory.

I would definitely recommend Tom for your turbo projects.

Honestly Tom is the man...

He's gone out of his way to figure issues that have had nothing todo with tuning...

At FocusFest in between racing he would datalog my car and inspect how it's running... Not one time would he talk about charging me... Seriously... Tom is the way to go..

I am hoping I can get around to purchasing Tom's Tune real soon. I've heard nothing but positive's about him.
