sort of, you would need two flash tuners (xcal 3's). The tuners become vin locked once you use them, so you would not be able to us one tuner for two cars.

So just curious, what are the typical costs of the xcal's? Then $150 on top of that for a log-based remote tune?

I'm definitely curious about this on my new car. I suppose I should get an intake and exhaust to take advantage of the tune as much as possible.

Its generally around $400 for a tune and it comes on an xcal 3. If you get it from Tom then new tunes are free! Other companies charge for updates and or new tunes.

Gotta say the Xcal is possibly the best mod i have done to my car. Not only did it give me more power everywhere in the rpm range, it also increased my gas mileage dramatically.

I love my tune from Fswerks. It really livened up my car I ended up doing I/h/e before the tune so I'm done with my car pretty much. Just gotta find more cossie parts :).

if you buy a sct x3 tuner off of ebay... lets say it was used for a mustang, can you still use it on a focus when you buy a custom tune from tom?

Yes you can buy a Custom tune with FREE updates as you add more NA mods for 150.00 the big thing buying uses flashers is you must make sure they are unlocked

If some one sells a flasher and they still have the tune flashed to there car and didnt restore the stock tune then the SCT XCAL is locked and you wont be able to use the XCAL to load tunes

Slo86GT For 399.00 and 20.00 shipping you get the xcal3 , full custom tune , FREE updates as you add more NA mods

If you have a xcal or buy a used xcal my custom tune with FREE updates is 150.00
