It should be, main differences of course now are he has a 3 inch catback and the DCT.

Focus Power will soon be offering the MK3 tuning , As always it comes with

SCT XCAL3 flasher

Full custom tune to your Focus stock or modded , not a canned tune that one tune fits all Foci with your mods , This just does not work any more , As no 2 Foci stock or modded are the same or make the same power , no 1 tune will work on all foci with the same tune stock or modded

Meaning
If you have a stock Foci you use "X" tune
If you have a cold air you use "Y" tune
If you have cold air and header you use "Z" tune
Those days are gone

I send you a base tune file for your mods , then I take over your laptop and set up a proper log and do the first datalog so you understand how everything works and how to use it , then we datalog to make your tune a full custom tune to your stock or modded Foci

You get FREE tune updates as you add more NA mods for as long as you own the car

I am working on times with customers to get 2 Foci on the dyno and do tuning when I get back from my tuning trip up north

Not to sidetrack but if I decide to take this tuning route which sounds pretty awesome (I much like the idea of a custom tune rather than a canned one) is the data logging software windows only? Or is it Mac compatible?

Windows only, works best on XP.

Major reason why I have not yet tuned my car because I need a laptop running windows XP first!

Another question, I love the sound of being able to tune from a laptop. Is this software something that we would be able to make changes in our self? If so, is there restrictions, etc.

I have some very minor experience in using AEM software in a friends Nissan Silvia, with a standalone ECU, but am curious what can be done in tuning these. Very excited!

The end user with the xcal3 will have limited user adjustability , things like
Timing
WOT Fueling
Tire size
Shift Psi and RPM
RPM
And a few more things

Glad to hear the "canned" tunes are becoming obsolete. these new datalog tunes are practically a never ending dyno tune session. From the sounds of it anyways. Will the user be able to disable the gov. Limiter?

XP? a 13 year old OS that isn't sold new anymore, that is annoying.
