I have a 100% stock 09 coupe with the automatic trans. Not so much as a drop in filter. Will a tune do much for me or should I not bother?
What motor do you have in your focus? I am surprised the converter is stalling at 2700. I know my Zetec is rated at 2200rpm from the factory behinds the 2.0L Zetec but that is probably the flash stall. With modifications behind my Zetec the unit now brake stalls to 2200rpm and flashes just above that. THe TC is a 10" model in the ZX2.The converter in my 2011 seems to stall in the 2700 rpm area if you just hold the brake and mash the gas. The meat of the powerband starts at 4000 rpms, but a real 3000-3500 rpm stall would make a huge difference for a daily driver. The real issue would be getting the tune correct to work with the looser converter.
Never been to the strip, no plans since its a pig. I'm having thoughts of drving down to the FocusFest, maybe I will embarass myself on the strip there.Nice, have you ever taken it to the track? I'd be interested in seeing your 60ft numbers. Best I can do is 2.54 on street radials.
Tom didn't change any settings on the tune for your transmission??? I would be asking to have him retune that car...WHat are good settings to change on the ATX?
Tom tuned mine but he didnt do any changes to the tranny. I changed all 4 gears up 2mph on the RPM and then i went one click up on the shift PSI i was suprised.
When you look at the settings on the tuner and it says 2mp i really didnt think i would tell any difference but i can. Just going 1 setting better on both the MPH and the shift points made it drive way better. I dont know whats good though i just changed em all.
6500RPM for a bolt-On Zetec seems to be the magical number, not only myself but other Focus & Escort owners all say the same.Well if you are at the strip, keep experimenting until you find what gives you the best ET/MPH.
I think i need to wait till i get my wideband issues resolved.Tom didn't change any settings on the tune for your transmission??? I would be asking to have him retune that car...
The factory downshift schedule is pathetic at best, the line pressure is piss poor, and the shift rpm is best described as optimal for a push rod v8. There is also the ability to adjust the lock up torque schedule. I'm surprised he didn't do any of this.
