    Is it possible with any of the tuning options available from FSWerks to dis-able the brake/engine override? APR has the left-foot braking option available with their tune for the GTI, and I was hoping something similar was available for the Focus ST.

    Not sure I get what you're asking. Can you try to explain this to me with more detail?

    Thanks for responding!

    My understanding is that a few years ago, the government made it mandatory for all new vehicles to come with a brake override system (BOS) that will cut the gas pedal input if brake and gas are pressed at the same time. This makes left-foot braking impossible because you need constant, steady gas while you apply and feather the brake.

    APR offers the option to disable the BOS with their tunes. I was wondering if FSWerks offers this, as well.

    Not sure this is happening. I'll have to monitor it the next time I'm logging and see what I see.
