Mod first then tune so you can tune for the mods.

If you use Tom from Focus-Power you can tune before and get tune updates after any mods for as long as you have your car. Can't beat that.

Tuning has changed

Your Focus will respond well to a tune with no mods so you can be enjoying your Focus more why you are saving for mods then if you buy the tune from me you get free tune updates as you add more NA mods

Then when you add a new mod just shoot me a datalog and you get a tune back for your new mods

Remember, this is a 1.5 Ecoboost engine.

Euro model, hailing from Egypt, so options avail. will be different.
