2-Step for 2016 SE DCT

I wanted to grab a straight to the point answer on installing a 2-step system on my 2016 Focus SE.

Without telling me whether I need it or not:

Is it possible being an automatic?

How would I go about installing one?

Would a tune give me those pops/ small flames, even though there is no turbo (lol just wondering)?

I've seen the MSD modules. But how could I install something like it for my Focus? Is it all via tunes?

Thanks guys, appreciate it.

You would have to have a seriously built all motor to get flames... if you want pops and even some crackles, mine does this with an intake, catless header, 2.5" free flow ST aftermarket exhaust, tuning and all that... especially in sport mode.

You can't just take a stock car and get pops, etc... the two step, would have to ask Tom hes the NA tuning guy, ask in his focuspower area.

You'll want to use a 'glide for the track or go w/ the turbo 400 for the street w/ a trans brake, a JS bump box as well as your 2 step.......

The iconic Powerglide is a GM 2-spd & you got to know what a turbohydro 400 is....One of GM's best 3-spd's for high power cars....
