i looked at the SCT website and only say a tuner for the 2011, so I called them and was told the same tuner woulf work BUT they have no tunes for it. HOWEVER they can direct me to an SCT dealer that can make a custom tune for their tuner that will work for the 2012. There is a place in Florida that can do it and email the tune so it can be downloaded to the tuner and plugged into the car. I was told you CAN tune the car, but there are just no canned tunes available. If I had the finances I would have pursued it further and let them hook me up with someone who can write the tune, but I cant purchase the tuner right now.


That was on the phone a couple months ago, I sent an email today and when I get a reply I will post it, that way its written from SCT so I am sure. Its possible the salesman was mistaken, thought I really hope not. Hoping the answer is still the same.

Im really wanting the FS header, but I want to add a cat. I just dont feel comfortable having a brand new car that isnt exhaust legal. I do own a truck with no cats, but its a 94 and not a daily driver.

First things first, my wife wants to upgrade the sound system, and since she has started driving the car too guess thats where I will start. I will probably wait for the performance mods until after the warranttee has expired, I dont want to have any trouble over that.

So apparently the person from SCT was full of BS when I called, REALLY mad right now because I know thats EXACTLY what they had told me when I called them, I just called them again, and what I was told was a half truth.

the 2011 WILL work with the 2012 WITH CALIBRATIONS which are not yet avaliable. So the first person was not entirely correct.

GOOD NEWS THOUGH:
SCT HAS A 2012 FOCUS ON ORDER AND AS SOON AS THEY GET IT THEY WILL START CALIBRATIONS TO MAKE THEIR TUNER WORK FOR THE 2012. SO BOYS IT WONT BE LONG!
