  1. A must buy!

    Posted by Jonathan Warrener on 10th Jul 2020

    Here to read reviews to see if it's any good? The answer is yes. If this tune was in the Olympics it would be tested for steroids.The reviews from so many people were enough for me to try it for myself. I had high expectations and was not disappointed at all. I knew the xr5 had more potential and this unlocks it.

    Thank you Oem Denied for your service and expertise.

  2. Game-Changing

    Posted by Mark Blakey on 11th Jun 2020

    I bought the Stage 1/2 tune for my Xr5 Focus with no supporting mods and the Stage 1 tune really changes the car to what it should have been like from factory. Boost comes on quickly and harder than stock, and the overall responsiveness of the car is dramatically better! Would highly recommend the OEM Denied tune to any Focus Xr5 owner, and easily installation meant I was able to test it out straight away
    5 stars!

  3. WOW!!!

    Posted by Rhett Rudd on 24th May 2020

    This tune transforms the XR5 to what it should’ve been from the factory. At this stage I’m only running the stage 1 tune but wow what a difference to the car. Really shows the hidden potential of the engine!
    Throttle feels more responsive & the boost feels heaps better, comes on quicker & stronger, pushes you back in your seat like it should. Has a better intake sound as well.
    Fast postage & easy to follow instructions & they get the tunes back to you fast! Definitely worth the money, really can’t believe the difference it has made! If you are thinking about doing it, stop thinking & just buy it you won’t be disappointed!

  5. Worth every cent!

    Posted by Steve on 9th Feb 2020

    Bought the stage 1&2 with crackle map! Very satisfied! Jamie was very quick to reply to any questions and was very helpful.
    Instantly noticed the power increase and it feels amazing!
    I also received my maps within i hours, way earlier than the 24-48 hour period! Very satisfied with that also!
    He also supplied all cables etc & a neat little 3D sticker
    100% would reccomend!

  6. Best tune for XR5!

    Posted by Alex Fielding on 18th Nov 2019

    After a long time of tossing up between Dreamscience Stage 1, Bluefin and OEM Denied, Jaime had given me all the information, statistics and differences between his product and competitors. I pulled the trigger on this after numerous messages back and fourth to Jaime. I ordered the tune on Friday, it was here 1 business day later on the next Monday. I had my tune installed the day it had arrived thanks to the quick response times from the team at OEM Denied. It has completely changed the car, and made my entire family laugh at the large differences. So happy with the tune! Best bang for buck and best tune for Australian Climates.

  7. Stage 1 Tune for Stock XR5

    Posted by Steve on 23rd Oct 2019

    A fantastic job by Jamie on this tune. Super smooth power delivery, very responsive and turbo just spools up so much faster. It's a fantastic investment even if your car isn't modded. Heard it gives better fuel economy but I'm still enjoying it too much to see the benefits.

    Jamie is very helpful and gets your tune file out to you in record time so you can go out and start having fun.

    Highly recommended.

  8. Oem denied performance tune

    Posted by Thomas on 26th Sep 2019

    Was tossing up between dream science and blue fun hand held tune but then I was told about this, after a few hours of learning a bit about it from Jamie at oem denied I bit the bullet and just bought it, only for stage 1 as it took me 2 years to find the courage to spend what I think is a big amount of money, but in the end worth every penny. Received it in the mail the day after purchase, installed the day after and it is honestly night and day! Cannot recommend this tune enough

  9. Stage 1 & 2 + Crackle map

    Posted by Will De Maio on 11th Sep 2019

    This is hands down probably the best thing I’ve ever spent my money on besides buying the XR5 in the first place. Currently running the Stage 1 tune with Intake, Downpipe and De-Cat and the difference is there the minute you take off in first gear. More power, more torque, more noise and just overall more responsive. The car now has a smooth power delivery. It literally changed the car completely, unlocking it’s true potential you could say. The car is noticeably better on fuel when not giving it the boot but power is definitely there when you need it. And this is only stage 1 (facepalm). Once the Intercooler and blockmod are done I will switch to stage 2. (Not recommended for cars without upgraded cooler).

    There will be about 24 hours between you sending Jamie the ECU read file and then getting the tunes emailed back. So don’t leave it till the last minute on a Friday night like I did haha. He was nice enough to email me the tunes on a Sunday! Legend.

    If you’re thinking about buying this tune don’t think, just do. So worth it.

  10. Dreamscience vs OEM Denied

    Posted by Niño on 15th Aug 2019

    I’ve been running the dreamscience for a couple months now (Modx with a crackle map) and it was pretty good. Though a couple things I noticed:
    1. It ran really really rich
    2. Power delivery was a little rough

    I switched over to OEM Denied stage 2 tune a week ago and I’ve been amazed at the quality of the tune.
    Power delivery is extremely smooth and with my turboback; really good responsive and instant power
    Happy that I made the switch, so if you’re tossed up on which tune to get, go for OEM Denied! Not only will you save $$ but Jamie’s also prompt with replies to help you out. Crazy service!
