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.

Same for me from my injected tune. Been flogging it since I got it and only cut 30 miles off my tank where I would normally lose at least 55-60 miles with this type of driving.

FSwerks had two cars come in but their ECM codes had not been added for support from sct, info was sent in to have them added. Randy said this last week.

Well I know diesel and I have different ECM codes and injected has been able to load their tune on our cars and two DCT's.

Pretty much waiting on availability of FSWERKS programming on the SCT devices for our two-women owned Focus here. :) Once it's tuned, I'll be sure to give the community a thorough write-up.

I think you will be waiting a while for fswerks since I think the SCT tune didn't support the the two 5spd's that came to their shop. Injected has loaded their tunes on 4 different ECM codes already. Their store is up so I think the it won't be to much longer till their device is out.

SCT has been "working" on a tune for our cars for almost 2 years and they can't even get it to work on a manual focus?!? That is just sad.

EDIT: Just realized it is FSWerks that is having the issue. My bad.

I have to wait a month or two anyways, since other, more-important-than-modding-my-car issues came up. The last I heard about Injected's tune is that general availability will be within that general timeframe anyways.

But thanks for your concern.

Well technically it's both but mainly SCT. FSWERKS couldn't tune the two 5spd's cause SCT's tune didn't support their ECM codes...
