Decent price if you get suckered, but those chips don't do a damn thing. The focus has enuff stock timing to begin with.

All they do is add more timing, and make you run 93 octane.

Stay away from those chip setups, unless you go boost, FI, otherwise you won't notice a difference in stock power, and you have to run 93 octane.

My Diablo helped my low and mid range power. And it did away with (most) of the tip in timing(stock ecu retards the timing between shifts). $230 installed is a good deal TurboColtGT.

thanks for everyone thoughts on this
i went ahead and had them install it.
i think 230 is a great deal. if i dont like it i can take it out. but i doubt that will be the case.

thx again

I wouldn't say they don't do a damn thing. They definitly do increase power in the low and midrange areas.

It's nothing major, but it does help. Run it for a few weeks, take it out, you'll notice. It's subtle, but there.

if u have no desire 2 get any custom work done 2 that chip 2 help u w/mods down the road, then get a SC. if u wanna do some stuff 2 ur car perf wise, then get a diablo. pay them 125bux on top of the chip price, and get unlimited lifetime custom burns free. SC u pay each time.
