Can anyone tell me the difference between a xcal3 and xcal4? Other than the xcal4 is newer?

xcal 4 in newer LOL , smaller , if you go to www.sctflash.com it will tell you everything

If your looking for a tuner and checking prices go with the one that cost less , they both do a good job loading tune and datalogging

If you buy the flasher from me you get a full custom tune , I am the only focus tuner offer custom tunes and free tune updates as you add more NA mods

1. Tom's tune, focus-power.com

2. SCT X-Cal 4

3. ~$460

4. I have had the tune for about a month

5. The power delivery and feel of the car is immediately changed after installing the tune. It takes about 10 minutes or so to update the tune every time, and it takes a little longer the very first time because it is storing the stock map. Datalogging is also quite easy and is as simple as pushing a few buttons. I also did not have to worry about TC because my car came without it. There is gobs more down low power and no more bogging. The car also seems to pull like a freight train up top as well, very impressed. I have also seen a boost in mpgs. I was getting close to 34mpgs on a round trip from Cincinnati to Chicago and back. There is definitely enough power to lose some traction when starting off if giving it too much gas. The idle also seems to be much smoother on the car. I feel like I could take my friend in his new to him prelude :p. When the car gets to around 5k rpm hold on lol, and it pulls hard all the way to redline, which is easily north of 7k. The exhaust also sounded a little different, but I can't quite put a finger on it to really describe, although the exhaust seems to pop a little less when engine braking, downshifting, etc. Overall, I am very impressed, and this is a must have mod for anyone with an SVTF. It is almost a different car, it unleashed the beast!

6. Tom was excellent throughout the whole entire process. My car was being difficult and an o2 sensor went out as well as the valve cover gasket, so I had to fix those issues with the help/guidance of Tom. He has sent me 4 or 5 tune updates to really get the car running right, and I will likely need more as I may get a throttle body upgrade. He would even get back by email sometimes after midnight, and he is always quick to respond. He is great to deal with, and I would go to him for any tuning needs. Shipping only took 3-4 days, and I am overall very pleased and satisfied.

7. I have no dyno yet, but hopefully someday soon.

1. Tom's Tune Focus-Power
2. SCT X4
3. 462 Big ones
4. One. Day. (will edit as it goes on longer)
5. Install was rather simple, a few hiccups, but Tom was great and the set-up was done within the hour. It feels like a whole new car, and I haven't even datalogged anything yet! Can't wait to see how the tunes will get better and better!
6. Shipping took 5 days, Monday>Friday, but I certainly wasn't rushed. Tom was professional, and very quick. After a small hiccup with the Derive updater, (a quick reinstall fixed the issue) it worked beautifully, and I'm on the road!
7. Nope, no Dynos. Maybe someday? Probably no real hp or torque gains anyway.

1. Tom's Tune, focus-power.com

2. SCT X4

3. $462

4. I've had Tom's tune service for one year.

5. The computer software and tune were pretty easy to install. Even with very few modifications, the tune made the SVT much more responsive and fun to drive (how it should have come from the factory). There is a noticeable improvement with every tune. The biggest difference is with each modification I add. I can usually feel a small difference just after installing/make a mod, but each time I am surprised by how much the next tune from Tom actually helps to bring out the full potential of the mod. If you’ve made mods to your car but haven’t had a tune, you are missing out on the real gains that are possible. For fun the other day I put the stock tune back in the SVT and there is a night and day difference. Over the weekend I installed an ORP and air/fuel ratio gauge to help with the next level of tuning. Can’t wait to pull more potential out of the SVT with Tom’s next tune. Of all the mods I’ve made, the $$ for the SCT X4 and tunes are the best money I’ve spent on the SVT so far.

6. Tom has been great throughout the whole process. Any time I have a question he is very quick to respond. And even though I drop datalogs on him during the weekend, he gets the next tune back to me within 48 hours. Several times Tom has suggested changes/mods to the car and each time the car feels better.

7. No dyno yet, but maybe someday I'll drive the 5 hours south to put it on Tom's Dyno.
