SCT Xcal...

So I got the Xcalibrtor and I went with a stock tune which I assume is what is already pre-loaded on it. I did not mess with the spark, fuel, blah blah blah and anyway has anyone had a problem with the SCT? My car seems to bog down when ever it feels like it, my rpms don't shoot up as rapid when I go WOT. It also feels like I have lost so much power. I feel like a honda because I lost all my low-end power.... I'm having 2000 Cougar flashbacks ... oh and the check engine light is on giving me transaxle codes..... Has anyone had the same experiences?? or similar? any help is appreciated, thanks

I Wouldnt load any sort of shelf tune out of any tuner out there. The only way to go with any tune is to get a custom tune... just the shelf tunes are a baseline... the guy that tuned my car tweaked it for about 1.5hours (due to how slow the SVTFs CPU is..) before we got exactly what we wanted.

How much did you get your tune from Socal SVT? I got Tom's tune. Talk to Tom (1TurboFocus). He knows his Foci.

Well i got it for 300$. Sorry I figured out my problem, I guess the TPS went out and that's the reason the car was bogging down and losing power when either stock or with the tune. I replaced it and now my cars is running fine. The tune I got was from someone who knows very much about the Foci, Don't want to say his name but he put together a sedan twin turbo a while back. Oh the codes I got were for the TPS but I was too ignorant to change it right away.
