Yeah, didn't think they got this engine. Glad to know I remembered that right.

Not to get off topic, but it's hard to tell which parts, if any, from the Stoffler site fit the Mk3 Duratec. Any chance you can let us know, somewhere, which parts are applicable?

For engine performance parts, none of them as they don't get this engine in Germany where Stoffler is from. As to the body work and wheels, then anything that fits an MK3 should work with a few caviats. One of which being that having not tried them I can't gaurantee that they will work 100%.

Hmm weird because Rebel Devil Customs is offering the Stoffler quad x exhaust and valence (at least for the hatch)

Exhaust is probably cat-back, and not engine specific, that's why.

I have an Edge tuner for my F350. I ordered an upgrade exchange for it today. While I was talking to them, I asked them about the Focus. They have another division for cars called "Superchips". They told me they have a chip, but further discussion revealed it was the ST only. So he transferred me to the development head, and I got to bug them about one for the NA engines 2012-2013 2.0L. I told him he'd sell HUNDREDS on this forum alone, if they brought it to market before any one else did!

The things I've heard about Superchips are generally mixed.

No clue, to be honest. A non-existent Focus NA Superchip is just as good as a non-existent Focus NA SCT tuner. That I can say with a very high degree of confidence. My point? I'd rather have something than nothing.

My Edge product for the PowerStroke diesel was first rate, and I anticipate the upgrade will be even better. Same company, different division.

Super chips are junk and a full tune would be better by far.
