Depending on your ECU code the Zetec low speed cooling fan doesnt even come on till low 230`s and the hi speed doesnt come on till the low 240`s

Tuner should of told you to add a 180 deg thermostat and lowered the fans to come on in the hi 190`s and low 200`s this lowers your cooling temps and lowerss the knock threshold and the chance of spark knock

That sucks my friend. But as PSUrivie mentioned, tuning the Focus seems to be different from tuning other Ford vehicles (Mustang, etc). Sounds like they were just giving you the run around.

You may be able to contact Fernando at Racing Parts Solution. I know people have had good luck with him. Website: http://www.racingpartssolution.com/

^^

agreed with Jgrove998. I'd either let Tom (1turbofocus) or fernando tune it. Both have had tuned some legit setups on these boosted foci.

I learned a while ago you have to go where the reputation is with our cars, I tried a different tuner first and I gotlame results, car idled terribly and had misfire issues under boost. bout 2 weeks of datalogging and car runs great, my only downside is my catch can I need to weld a new fitting on to fit my hose end. also I have to do a leakdown test after xmas to make sure my head is bad. It smokes at first start up pretty bad

You can sell it but only to some one that has the same ECU code as you do and they would have to use your name if they ever had any issues and contacted SCT

If you choose to keep it and I do your tuning I can teach you a lot about using your software and give you a copy of your tune so you can open it and see what all is being done , you wont learn everything but you will understand a lot more on how things work if your interested , most tuners would NEVER send you an open copy of your tune file , I feel like you paid for the tune , Its yours
