Hi guys

Looks like my gf is going to pick up this one turbo focus i found for her.....it has Roush turbo set up on it....which is great.....but slow in stock form

Anyways....she obviosly doesn't care for turbo on the car......Which she wants to give it to me........for free [headbang]

So here's the thing.....and i know some of you will say its stupid...
But her focus has only 140,000km on it....and mine has 240,000km on it.....

Now what i wanna do, i want to swap turbo set up......physicly it shouldn't be hard.....but about ECU?? how will i deal with that? would i have to tow both cars to some tuner to return one to stock and another get tuned for Roush? please help......also i'll be checking my compression on my focus shortly but i am considering to put a new engine one it......and not we won't switch cars.....i like my 4 doors better and the color and the leather interior and the list goes on......


Basicly me swaping turbo....and how to tune her car to stock and mine to Roush?

thank ya'll

^^I agree. or you could just swap all the wireing harnesses and computer from each car instead of the whole motor but thats alot of work. Would'nt a dealership be able to flash it back to stock for you for cheap. i think they would even put a newer 04' tune on it?

Well what about an ECU reset, would it revert back to a stock tune or would it pick back up the Roush tune?

That only clears engine codes. It will revert to the roush tune, the stock tune no longer exist anywhere in that cars memory.

The car should come with a tuner. SCT or Predator check on that and if so the stock tune can be loaded with those tuners.

That won't work. The Roush tune would still be on the ECU after the reset. Contact Tom and see if happens to have a stock tune lying around for that car.

so basicly i can just take out ECU box that is located behind glove compartment, bring it to Ford , get them to reflash it back to stock. Install it back on former "turbo focus" and should be good for stock set up? Correct?

For my ECU i see that i have to send it to Roush to get it flashed. Right?

No you have to take the Focus to Ford to get the computer reset then I would just get a custom tune on the one getting the turbo

you're right...custom tune will be better since stock Roush tune is waaaay to safe and puts the car only like to 160whp
