Do You Want an ECU Tuner for the Mk III NA Focus?

Let's make this a bit simpler, removing the issue of peoples' histories or beef with any particular tuning company. Should be easy enough, right?

This is a much better poll. Some people are bitter about being misled

Would love to have one if it isn't too pricy. EDIT: By pricy, I mean over (especially significantly over) the 500 mark.

I can't vote for whatever reason but I would purchase a tuner hands down as soon as it was on the market.

I hope one gets made for those who can utilize on but for me I wouldn't see much benefit in one with just an intake and exhaust and being at a mile high above sea level running lean isn't an issue.

Some people are bitter about a thread hating on a singular company ...


and honestly, what other tuning company is a member of this site? (FAIK, Diablo never had anyone on a Focus site, only SCT has)

Who's bitter? This thread is to include those who would otherwise buy a tuner, if it weren't from SCT. Also, this isn't the only Focus-enthusiast site.

Me.
(thought that'd be pretty evident)


There's another site?
(btw, I've been on Focus sites since the beginning, early '00)
