yup more than likely garbage. focus computers are non-chippable. you need a tuner.

^^That would be the correct tuning device, yes. Search for Username: "1turbofocus", or go to the Focus-Power subforum CLICK HERE. Tom has been writing tunes and working on Fords for a looong time(and Foci from the beginning) and is one of, if not the, best in the business.

Would a tune help if you only have a SRI and exhaust with no other engine mods?

Incredibly so.
