Mazda didn't reinvent the wheel. Direct injection is still just a duty cycled solenoid dealing with higher pressures. Manufacturers are being more pro-active about keeping factory programming intact, but the aftermarket will always find a way to get around that if they think the demand is strong and they can profit. Nissan took great measures to keep tuners out of the R35 ECU/PCM, and now there are predictably tuned 1,200 HP R35s freely available to those with money.

There is tuners on this forum that have the ability to tune the ST right out of the box when SCT finishes the software

Best thing to do is wait till we have tuning then go from there , maybe SCT will then offer tuning for the Mazda and they can have options for tuning as well

not quite where I thought the thread would go.

I say, the more options there are for tuning, the happier people will be.

I listed all the focus tuners and this is what someone said
This is not a post to bash on any forums or Mazda peps
If you take this post the wrong way get over it

What do you think Turbotom

This is what someone posted

This isn't the old focus... this is a brand new platform. FSwerks has been building and tuning PI durtec engines.... this is a whole new ball game. The new 2.0 (both N/A and turboed) employ a DI fuel system. Which no focus has previously used.... however, this new Focus fueling system looks remarkably similar to the MS3... which Cobb just so happens to have a little experience in.

This is also the first turbo charged Focus from the factory. That means ECU complexity that FSwerks has never even heard of. STC has made a tuning solution (most likely the software fswerks tunes with) for every previous model focus... yet they haven't even released the software for the 2012 NA focus. They keep stringing everyone along telling them this is a very complicated ECU and they are still working things out.

Which would you rather have.. a complany who is familiar with building tuner turbo kits for port injected cars... or a industry leading company who specializes in factory turbo charged cars with direct injected fueling systems.

Maybe you should do a little research before handing out such advice.
First factory turbo charged focus? Didn't some euro version come turbo charged like the RS or ST OR am I wrong lol
