That is true, but if they released the tool, Tom and other tuners could at least do something with it.

I commented. Hopefully they at least try to support the n/a focuses a bit.

Exactly. If Ford produced 200,000 Foci in 2012 (Just using a number for my example) and only 1% of Foci owners (2,000 Foci) purchased a Tuner from SCT at about $500~ a pop then SCT would have reeled in $1,000,000. Yeah buddy.

Sorry if my math is wrong, I just got my wisdom teeth pulled and I am a little high on Vicodin. LOL!

If 10% of ST owners buy a tune that is still probably less than if 1% of NA owners buy a tune.

That is, if SCT sold them to wholesalers for $500/pr unit. You forgot that, there is mark up at two or more points from SCT to your hands.

True. I was just using some numbers to make a point.

The reason being is because they have been using my car since last May/June. My car hasnt been there in a few months since the guy I was working with was sent to China for 6 months.

Although it was made clear the ST was made a priority of the N/A MK3's. And also waiting for larger markets to receive the cars as well.

Alright, not sure if anyone here saw the responses by SCT to Albarry's post on their facebook page, but here we go...

This was their initial response following a few impatient remarks from several individuals.

"We explained yesterday we are working on it. Not sure what else to tell you guys. If we had an ETA, we would tell you. The difference between the Focus ST and N/A version is there is only 1-2 PCM codes. The n/a Focus may have 20-30 PCM codes. We could release 1 single code in 30 days like the Focus ST, but then only 1 of 10 guys cars would be supported. 1 of you would be happy, the rest of the guys with an unsupported PCM code would be here crying."

Sensing some irritation on their behalf, I felt it was time for a little diplomacy to better represent us as a party interested in their product. Thus, I asked them what we could do, as consumers, to help them out. This is what I got:

"The biggest issues guys is getting vehicles in for testing. There isn't many vehicle owners willing to give us their cars for 2-3 weeks. That is one of the reasons the Focus ST happened so fast. Torrie from Unleashed Tuning lent us his car for a month. If you are local to Orlando and want to help, great. I can pass your info along to our dev team to arrange borrowing your car."

So, if any of you guys are in the Orlando area, and want to help SCT out with getting a tune together, contact them!

Also, please don't be a dick about asking them to put together a tune for us. It won't get us anywhere.

Zack
