Tune for 5 speed?

I've got a 15 se hatchback with manual transmission and 2.0L motor. Would I see any benefit from a custom tune? Car is stock, motor wise, and will be staying that way. It is my daily driver and I'm averaging 36-37mpg in mixed driving which I'm happy with. What I really dislike is the 700rpm idle with foot on the brake and clutch in. It makes the idle rough, especially with the AC on. I've replaced the motor mounts with oem Ford parts so it's not that. I think just raising the idle RPM to 800ish would cure it, but would a tune get me anything else for the money out of the 5 speed?

I've already got an SCT X4 that I was using to tune my ecoboost expedition. I've removed the tune from that vehicle for warranty purposes and believe I've got one more vehicle before the device locks. What could I see improvements in with a tune on the stock focus?

Idle , cruise , better over all daily driveability , most say better MPG , better performance etc

Even on a stock Focus

If you have a flasher I charge 155.00 for the custom tune and free NA Tune updates

I can't say enough about Tom's tuning. Custom is the ONLY way to go! He tunes for your gas, your elevation, your weather, humidity, etc. No can tune comes close.
Lately, I've been shopping for an F150 and you can bet Tom will be tuning that too!

Are you running the tune on a 5 speed? I know the tune makes drivability improvements to the DCT, looking for first hand opinions on a stock tuned manual. It's on my list of upgrades, but right now it's behind a spare key, and the ST wing.

I also have a 5-sp '15 SE Hatch and would like to at least get some better low end torque. I know that is probably asking a little much for a stock NA 2.0L, but anything more would be better than what it is now.
