So, are you asking about tunes for your ST170?

There is a gentleman here under the name 1TurboFocus (Turbo Tom) that tunes the MK1 Zetec / Duratec engines.

You can find him here and get some answers to possibly remote tune your ride.

CLICK HERE - > To visit Turbo Tom's area on the site.

When you start the car it should pull forward and STAY it shouldnt return

You wouldnt want to move the IMRC opening to 2500 , I do move it slightly when tuning but not far

I do my own ECU / Strategy for the SVT so you wouldnt need the ECU code to tune with me

It would help with daily driveability but would hurt WOT

Ok it moves forward and returns after a few seconds , does this mean that the imrc is knackered

Tom whats the between wideband and tuning using the xcal 3 , how aggressive of a tune can the st 170 handle without hurting the motor ,do i need to supply you with a dyno sheet before you write a map or is it one map fits all , wot do you need for us to get started besides the dollars lol , my understanding of you writing a custom map for my car ,you will first have to knw how the car is performing etc before you write a map ,sorry for all the noob questions

I would send you a base tune , then we would datalog and make your tune a full custom tune to your car

I do not do aggressive tunes , I do safe tunes first then look for better driveability then performnce

I would need to mail you a xcal or if you have a flasher email you a base tune file

Tom
