Focus ST Custom Tuning
Take your Big Turbo Focus ST to the next level with Tunewerks custom tuning and FULLY optimized ECU tune for your Cobb Accessport. Nothing will surpass custom tuning when it comes to increasing the output of your Big Turbo Focus ST! When upgrading your turbocharger it's even more critical that you acquire purpose built programming. The OEM ECU calibration will limit the output of your big turbo upgrade and cause a software vs hardware scenario that will result in massive throttle closures, Check Engine lights, operating in limp mode, and eventual engine damage. With a well engineered big turbo upgrade, Tunewerks big turbo custom tune, supporting modifications, and high quality fuel you can expect average peak to peak gains of 100+ horsepower and 120+ ft. lbs. of torque AT THE WHEELS as pictured in the dyno chart. Output will vary due to different turbos, but regardless of turbo size there are stock fuel system limitations that factor in once you get into the 375+ WHP zone of operation. If you upgrade the fuel system increased overall gains are possible.
PRO TIP: For even greater gains select 100 octane, E30, or E40 fuel options when placing your order. Just be sure you have access to the chosen fuel. Using the incorrect fuel with a purpose built ECU calibration can lead to serious engine damage!
Focus ST custom tuning and optimized ECU calibrations from Tunewerks are built to your specifications based on vehicle modifications, octane, elevation, environment, and preferences. We go beyond the standard OTS files included with the Cobb Accessport, tapping into our 18+ years of Ford ECU calibration experience, taking full advantage of your vehicle’s modifications and potential. Engine performance is optimized by reviewing data logging files along with program revisions and feedback from the end user in real world driving scenarios.
There are reasons why rally teams such as Team O'Neil Motorsports, LaRoza Racing, O.D.D. Racing, CBKB Rally Team, Hovinga Motorsports, and Pura Vida Rally Team have repeatedly used custom tune services by our calibration staff... Experience. Dedication. Championships.
Our goal is to deliver the safest, most reliable power available, but we are equipped to push the envelope for those who are after the very highest output achievable. Conversely, we are able to accommodate those who prefer to have something more conservative, as well.

Tunewerks Optimized ECU Calibration Slots
Tunewerks calibrations include 5 slots that are switchable anytime. Using the steering wheel Cruise Control buttons allows for quick slot changes whenever needed. The default settings for the Focus ST are:
- Slot 1 - Custom High Performance Calibration
- Slot 2 - Custom High Performance Calibration with indicated Launch Control and Flat Foot Shifting
- Slot 3 - Low Boost / Gas Miser Mode
- Slot 4 - Panic Mode / Bad Fuel Mode
- Slot 5 - Wastegate Actuator Evaluation Mode
Easy to follow step-by-step data logging instructions are provided to help you get the most from your Tunewerks ECU calibration.
The custom calibration and file revision period is 60 days from the time the first ECU calibration file is sent to the customer. Once the 60 day period has expired the custom calibration period ends. Future custom ECU calibrations are subject to additional fees depending on the exact nature of the request.
Important Note: Programming for any fuel system upgrades, such as upgraded Fuel Injectors or High Pressure Fuel Pump will incur extra costs. Aux Fuel systems are completely separate and may be possible to program, but will also incur extra costs. Contact us before installing any of these items to avoid unexpected circumstances.
PRO TIP: When increasing boost pressure and overall performance of your Focus ST, ensure the spark plug gap is properly set. We recommend 0.028" gap to avoid misfires.
