Tune!

I wasn't sure where to put this but decided that here makes the most sense as it applies to owners. I may also post it in the Focus Power section as a review.

So here's some advice for SVT owners (as if you haven't heard this before):

If you're on the fence about a tune, GET OFF IT. Go get one RIGHT NOW. Absolutely the best thing you could do for your SVTF.

In fact, I would go so far as to say it should be the first thing you should do. Now that I finally installed mine, it's honestly like I'm driving an entirely different car. I'm so used to not having any power down low when driving around town, and forget that I do...so when I suddenly do, I'm like "whoa!" Every time. Smile on my face. I have absolutely no idea why I didn't do this sooner.

That's all.

who did you guys contact for the tune? and which company would you guys recommend. Just picked up my svtf about a month ago and will be looking for a good tune come this summer if there are no expensive issues with the car.

TurboTom ... 1TurboFocus (on here) has a Predator Tune and FSWerks does an SCT Tune.

Tom will probably chime in a bit. Or you can message him about it.

Hello, Just let me know if I can help with your tuning needs

One of the nice things about Focus-Power ( me ) doing your tuning is you get free updates as you add more mods so no sense in waiting to add more mods before the tune so you can be enjoying your tune now

Tom

seems like most people purchase a tune from you tom, just need to wait for this summer, I'm currently a college student and like a typical college student, don't have much money to throw around. Do you have any dyno charts or anything of this sort to assure the performance I am going to gain with your tune?

How much does the tune you have cost? I'm very interested. You can message me privately if needed.

I could post some dynos but I dont do that to my customers , No 2 cars are the same so if I post a dyno and (no shop is going to post an Avg dyno there going to do the best one reguardless if it reflects what most make) and you dont make that HP you will be very upset as you should be
