Thanks man. Just trying to not sound like a moron, I'm a new comer. Been doing a lot of stuff lately to my MK3, this sounds like something i might be interested in doing in the future.
If you want to be technical, it's a automated manual transmission. Not what you'd traditionally call a automatic.

Tom, can you do like a 2 maps thing where its in normal mode when in D, and a more hardcore mode when in S mode???

The engine has no idea what mode you are in , why not make the engine efficient in both modes one manual and one automatic

So does the SCT tuner pull the ECU code. This is the information I have pulled from the flasher.
Strategy:HFCK3A3
Comm:CAN
PCM SW ID: DM5A-14C204-JA

When looking in the ecu plastic box in the driver fender well. I found a sticker stating "trace label 1102258870" Is this the ECU code or do I need to unscrew the metal box?

2013 focus se 5spd manual

Its been well over a month now, and i still haven't even got the base tune yet. Does it usually take his long??? I've had to wait for nearly 2 months for the device to arrive, and i'm still waiting!! What is SCT doing?!? I'm pissed!! No offense to you, Tom, but this is ridiculous!!
