Does anyone know of a company that is producing programmers for the 2012 Focus 2.0?

Looks like my next company car is going to be a Focus and I am looking to squeek out some more HP/Torque.

Thanks!

Somebody should be working on one. FS werks maybe.

Company car? Aren't you suppose to be driving responsibly in that? If so, a tune will provide no useable gain.

LOL

I've been wondering the same thing, sort of. Have 600 mi on my Foocus and loving it but thinking about some upgrades to help it breathe a little freer. Intake/exhaust hardware replacements perhaps ... any suggestions greatly appreciated (especially cheap ones) [wrenchin]

Does the current xcal unit not work? Quick, somebody go plug theirs in to a 2012 and see if it will recognize it.

Can FSW custom program a tune on the SCT scanner that will give you an accurate tune based on the list of mod's that you provide them?

Apologies from a no-nothing noob...

Who are "SCT" and "Tom" and "FSW" ... links plz ?
SCT - SCT Performance manufactures handheld automotive performance & fuel economy programmers and Custom Tuning Software for Ford, General Motors and Dodge / Chrysler vehicles.

Tom aka Focus-Power is a sponsor on here who specializes in forced induction and tuning our cars

www.fswerks.com is a performance company that makes parts and sells other performance related stuff for our cars (linking to their site from here never works, just type in www.fswerks.com)

Both Tom and FSW sell SCT products and create their own tunes based on your specific needs. They will have to wait on the SCT to create a program that will allow them to load tunes onto the 2012

Um. No :)

Drive it like you stole it. I pay to use my company car for personal use. As long as I can pull the tune after two years I'm good.

Well if you pay for it then you have to get your money worth.

Though I would probably abuse it even if not paying [driving]

SCT has not announced support for the 2012 nor have they mentioned that they are even developing anything for it. Hopefully the ST will generate some aftermarket interest.

We do not mention every vehicle that we are working on. It is impossible to do that.

In general, the 2011/2012+ models (all Ford) have become increasingly more difficult to work with. Not only on the engine control side but also just being able to communicate with the processor. People do not realize what we have to do to add support. It is so much more than just "writing a tune."

We do plan to support the 2012 Focus, Fiesta and the Focus ST. It will take time though.

First thing Im going to do with the tuner. Raise Shift point to 7000 or more because it falls flat when it shifts at 6500.
