I'm just not sure if dyno tuning is worth it on a 2013 Ford Focus SE 5 speed. Can anyone confirm this?

I dont feel dyno tuning is worth it unless you have a a built engine , cams , etc and wanting to know the hp/tq numbers , My custom tune will get you a very good tune and its done the same way it would be done is you were sitting on a dyno

They said 8-10 days I guess they didnt know what they were talking about , I tune for safety first then the best performance I can get with in those limits , I would do a drop in filter and a 180 deg thermostat

i already have the drop in, i just ordered a CAI. I couldn't find any place that sells thermostats in Bangkok. And i couldn't find anything else online for this particular thermostat.

i can understand that you tune for safety first, i just want the best performance out of the cars with the mods i had put in.
