I think the fact that aftermarket companies are stalling on the tuning for the new non-ST is probably due to them not wanting to deal with the tuning for the DCT?
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left

Edit: I think what we need is a stickied thread 'Do you want more aftermarket support? Contact these companies!", with the appropriate links. Not only will it prevent repeat 'is there ecu tuning' threads from people evidently unable to use the search function, but it'll be a nice way to keep attention focused on the issue of a lack of support.

WOW didnt Tom at FocusPower and I say this months ago that Roush will just screw us over like they did so many years ago. They are a bunch a d-heads and will always be in my book. Never get your hopes up for anything Roush says they will offer for a 4 cylinder car. Period

Absolutely nothing. Why should I spend the money for what might not be worth the return on investment? I've been holding off, precisely because of this uncertainty on whether or not we'll have some engine management options.

I don't want to wind up in the same situation as Focusboy58, who's already dropped cash on a header, exhaust, intake, etc, but now can't tune to make the most of it. It is what it is, I guess. It doesn't make me hate my car, but it's disappointing.

The dawn of ST has complicated the ability for a performance company to develop model specific components. The perception is that most Focus enthusiasts will migrate to the performance model and leave the developed components to collect dust in inventory. IMHO , it is purely a business decision. What we need is a smaller more adaptable company to take interest.
