If you want the cheapest way, buy a used SCT 3015 unit for $250-$275 off of Ebay, hook it up, get the strategy code, send the strategy code to an SCT tuner type person, pay about $150 for the tune, and drive. If you don't want used, they sell new also. I haven't seen them up on anyone's site yet, but they are available if you email them. Here's my tuner's email address. torrie@unleashedtuning.com

Just make sure you buy a used SCT 3015 tuner that has a serial no. that starts with XP... and not one that starts with X3... as that model is not compatible with the Focus. It will not read the strategy or communicate with our cars.
I found that out as my older 3015 I previously used on my Fusion will not work.

Didn't know that, thanks for the tip. Glad I got the right one the first time or I would have found out the hard way.

Sorry I didn't really want to read through all the pages on here, but from what I'v read is that there is now a tune for the DCT correct? Is this something that can done at home or is it something that I'll have to find a shop to do? Also is FSwerks working on something the the SCT tuner?

We are not releasing a preloaded tune file. We have released the software and hardware update to allow our custom tuning dealers to custom tune the vehicles, both manual and automatic. This means that the vehicle can be programmed specific to your car and modifications but you must contact one of our custom tuning dealers to purchase (FSWerks, Tom, etc.)

I highly recommend Tom's tunes. He tuned my 2006 focus and was more than happy with it, and finally traded it in last week and picked up a new 2014 SE 5spd Focus.
When I'm ready, I'll be hitting him up again for sure to get this baby tuned.

Cant wait to rid myself of the lag and, who doesnt want more power through efficiency?

Anyone considering getting a xcal and having a custom tune done I highly recomend that you do it! Now that the dct can be tuned you will love how it works. I was quite suprised when mine chirped the tires hard with anything over half throttle when shifting to 2nd and 3rd. I haven't dealt with tom or fswerks. But I do know tom came across very professional when we talked via pm when he was making sure I knew about the xcal not having preloaded tunes.
