..........Maybe there should be a sticky stating the obvious question on tuning options and leave it at that... I don't know just a thought kinda of getting tired of seeing these threads. Or maybe it should be a "use the search button" response to every one of these threads that pop up.

Go where ever tuner is closer to your location, so if you have problems or upgrades in the future. It won't be a hassle to get your tune fixed/adjusted.

Tom will tune anything on a focus. I've heard that FSW will not tune custom turbo kits on peoples cars. Not sure why but if this is wrong please correct me.

Who would you be referring to? The ONLY tuner that I have known to not help ended up to be from Hypillauto (wayne) he's the one who bailed with money and tuners.

Focuspower I know for a fact has great customer service, reason I know this is b/c I don't even have a tuner for my SVT yet and he STILL helps with any question I have. I gotta unlock my SCT and when I do Tom will be tuning both my Duratec AND SVT.
