Its a shame you dont understand the potential a good Custom Tune has on the SVT for both engine safety and performance

I cant say anything about the XCAL4 as i think the bin of junk tuners i have has a few sct 3's and a pile of off brand, cheap and even overseas tuners.
again, im not paying for a tune if the cars staying close to bone stock i think the only thing the car has is a shaved throttle body and a short ram in the box sitting in the trunk that i may put on..
Hows it run on the oem stock tune vs what the xcal2 does?

just a recap, the SVT is a 2002 Focus SVT, the previous owner wanted to mod it and it was like a project car a series of circumstances happened and the car was left on the driveway and sat untouched for close to 4 years.. they messaged me asking if i was interested in it... i was probably its only saviour i dont know.. anyways i agreed and purchased the car and had it brought the 4 hours to my house and i managed to get it running and was hoping to drive it off the dolly... yeah got it running... sat in the car pushed the clutch and it when thwamp to the floor yeahhhhhh no clutch.. moments later the serpentine belt explodes... go and look the pully on the alternators redhot LOL well ok that answers that..

im not taking this car for its certification until the big 3 are fixed
Replace the mounts, replace the Timing belt and fix the brakes/clutch system

havent a clue xD the seller forgot to send it with the car so ive been rebuilding the engine with the tune installed.. I'm having a problem obtaining this particular cars OEM Flash from Ford

as for the car itself its run in place not on the road when i got it it sat for 4 years in th same spot and from what i was told had major issues with the engine on idle and drive.

when i got it the person who towed it for me had to remove the rear pads to unlock the rear brakes as it refused to move and they resorted to dragging it they didnt want to damage the tire so off the pads went and well.. they lost them xD

uhh i have a vid of the engine running on the SCT tune running 4 year old horrible gas, and a totally dead alternator which is chattering away uhh (goes and looks)

may take you up on that offer in the near future as of right now i need to get alot on that engine redone before I step forward just because it runs and idles doesn't mean it will drive. i dont want to waste others time in this car if i open up the engine to do its belt replacement and see it doesn't have much life left in it.

this weekend im going to try to do its Serpentine tensioner, T/B, T/B Tensioner, gaskets etc etc.. when i got it the entire engine bay was covered in oil, i want to do see if its just the VC gasket thats seeping and covering it and not a blown engine or block. i also need to run the rotors over to my friends shop and use his lathe to resurface the rotors as they are pretty thick with crust from sitting
