Thumbs up Tom's the Man for tuning the Focus

Over the past weekend I finally got around to installing my Glowshift Pillar Pod , Voltage gauge along with the AEM A/F wideband that Tom suggested .


After installing the Wideband , Didn't think much about it and started driving for a photo shoot . CEL came on . Checked it with my X Cal 3 and it was still recognizing my 3 rd 02 sensor .

Drove home , shot Tom an E mail that evening and the next evening had my update waiting on me after work.

Done the steps that he recommended , Return car back to stock , update Xcal 3 , download an add his update to the tuner .

And then took around 20 minutes to Upload the update to the ECU and now I have no CEL and car runs like a scalded dog .

Props to Tom all around for his expertise in the Focus tuning .


Thanks Tom, for all your valuable information and tunes .

Can I ask what AEM broadband you went with? Model # and how easy was the install? Also, where did you get it?

they are very easy to install. i about as good with wiring as M. Jackson (R.I.P.) was with kids. and by that i mean i will almost always manage to eff it up somehow lol. all you do is screw in the o2 sensor and run the harness all the way back to the interior. plug in the harness to the back of the gauge and wire the gauge up to the fuse for your cigarette lighter. and then ground the other wire. the other 2 extra wires wire for your analog input for datalogging.

The Wideband that I got was an AEM from C-F-M.com
