Tom's Tune Reviews

Hi, just wanted to ask the focus community if anyone has gone through tom's tune on their foci and has anyone experienced increase in performance such as hp, torque, or mpg? Also, has gotten better shifting and overall drivability? i got the DCT auto trans 16' focus SE 2.0l NA. Reason asking is i am looking for a tune for my focus and i am considering tom's tune unless theres anybody else you guys know that can have a better outcome than tom's tune. i do have the sct x4 flasher already

I have been driving on Tom's tune with my 12 SEL hatch with DCT for 2 and a half years and have experienced increases in all of those performance categories as well as overall better shifting and driveability!
I would highly reccomend the tune with having a DCT. He also provides free tune revisions with added naturally aspirated mods which has been quite great for me personally (since I have done many mods to mine) and would be great for anyone planning mods in the future

Okay sounds good yeah he seems like he knows what he's doing and seems to have good customer service he was able to talk to me on the phone and keep contact with me though email which i appreciate i will most likely end up doing his tune unless i hear anything else from others.

I agree completely about his customer service and communication. He will have times where hes busy with other things or personal things and wont be as quick with replys, but it makes sense for what he does. You'll also hear a lot of shit from ST guys or random haters, but a good half or more of those people just enjoy being trolls and have never even dealt with Tom personally. Unfortunately how the internet works in today's world.

I have dealt with 2 other tuners and Tom is the best IMO. I have spoken to him on several occasions and he is always knowledgeable. If you drive a focus I believe Tom is the only choice for tuning.

(He tuned my 2002 SVTF and it has better response and just runs smoother. It is basically stock so I didn't see any huge gains in power. But definitely more responsive and just smoother)

Tom did a tune for my 2016 with DCT, It did 100% make the car more fun to drive.
Traction control was removed, shift points are different and it is more responsive.
As far as the DCT I cant say much changed in regard to shuddering.
Had ford replace the clutch last summer and its been perfect since then.
My 2014 Titanium had 3 clutches before I traded it for the 2016. Purchased the extended warranty for my 16, will probably have more clutches in it.
I love the car, would really like an ST or RS but my Titanium actually does something the others will not. Just made and 8 hour trip at 85-90 most of the way and still did better than 30 Mpgs.

If you shift into S and tap the brake it will down shift
