What are some suggestions for the entry level programmer? Maybe a 87, 91, and 93 octane tune? Maybe adjusting speedo calibration, or even a speed limiter for parent who bought one of these for their kids, and would like a added piece of mind that their little angels aren't burning the roads up? I think everyone can benefit from a discussion like this, and look forward to everyone's responses.

MK3 Ford Focus Tuning



The graph posted above is a comparison between stock and tuned on a completely stock 2013 Focus Titanium with a DCT transmission. Both runs were made with the hood down with the operating temp at the same levels. The rev limiter was also raised to 7000 RPM's for a apples to apples comparison.

Hi! Welcome to the forum! I'm excited to see someone interested in tuning our cars. This thread might answer some of your questions:

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=311405

A lot of us have been waiting a long time for tuning. Things that a lot of us are looking for out of a tune are:

  • 87, and especially 91 & 93 Octane performance maps (a switchable 'economy' and valet map would be nice too)
  • Ability to enable/disable the electronic stability program
  • Electronic governor defeat
  • custom rev limit as well as the ability to tune for our various mods (Intake, exhaust, header, etc), as per usual.
A cursory inspection of this forum as well as FJ will reveal that there's definitely a lot we're interested in. A question I have for you is what kind of a dealer network and hardware options do you have?

That's a start. In our initial testing there have been some very promising discovery's. I've been reading, and noticed a trend of people, that were beginning to loose faith. What else?[poke]

Most are just looking to get something more out of the car w/ the mods that have already been mentioned.

Gear ratios?

Right now we are the only company that I know of with this capability. In the coming weeks I will be in contact with others, and you will begin to see a network. We are in the process now of becoming a vendor on this site, and I have inquired with others. The mods and admin here have been very welcoming, and for that we are appreciative. Right now I am not in a position to discuss pricing, or how the tunes will be loaded into the data link. What I can say is that the last couple weeks have been very exciting, and I'd like everyone to get ready to NOT be disappointed.

This would make my idea to swap my final drive from 3.82 to > 4.06:1 a real possibility.

Something with the capabilities of SCT's livewire TS would be nice. I see on Injected's website that they work with SCT as well as Diablosport and other familiar names....

And this is the very reason you will get my money, and the monies of many others.

Thank you, for your pioneering! I'm rep-ing you when I get to my PC. [thumb]

So long as the functionality, service and results/reliability are there, the source doesn't matter much to me.

Something like the Diablosport Trinity for our car would rock. I don't want to bash SCT, but the boat seems to have sailed on their chance to earn our business. I've got high hopes for what Injected is cooking up for us... And a good reason to squirrel away some funds now.

We've lost faith because SCT specifically has played around with us for the last two years.

We're looking to be able to tune according to the modifications, as well as the standard regular and high octane tunes.

Personally I'd like to unlock the power train, but not push it to 11 as I still would want it to last a long time.
