So how do you like your Tune??

Since I and diesel have a tune from injected that we're testing for them and SCT has a tune for the 5spd I was wondering how the people with their tune like it so far. Just want feedback from others who have had a shop do the SCT tune.

I'm going car shopping for the wifey tomorrow. Since I can't get anyone local to try out the DCT tuning, I might come back with a Focus Titanium with a DCT. Maybe she will be the first woman to have a tune on her focus, and a DCT that nails 2nd like its it's job

The only person I know that has a SCT tune is RED.

I don't believe Tom has a tuned focus yet.

When I spoke with Tom he was getting ready to work on one, that was about a week or so ago.

In regards to my observations about my tune that SCT did for my car. Overall I am completely satisfied with the car. The throttle delay is gone so when I hit the gas there is no hesitation like there was before. The red line was moved up to about 7k and the car pulls hard and smooth till red line. Normal day to day driving experiences have been nice as the car behaviors stayed close to stock. Gas milage has improved slightly as well. On my daily commute to work I'm avg about 31mpg mixed where before it was high 29's to low 30's.

Sounds like the way it should have came from the factory. I just wish manufacturers would quit trying to make magazine types, hipster douches, and librarians happy and give us the damn car the way the engineers intended.
