Need Help On Ecu...or Piggyback Upgrades

Hey, Im new to the site and wanted to see if you guys with other 5th gen ludes like mine could help....the (shift-omatic) ludes in paticular...I cant seem to find any type of ecu "upgrade" thats not way expensive for the engine set up im doing, which is very mild, to get some more WHP and TQ...So now ive turned to "piggybacks" to help gain the little power that i want right now...Ive heard about the APEXI VAFC2, and GREDDY E-MANAGE "BLUE BOX", AND GREDDY E-MANAGE ULTIMATE...So if you guys have any info to an affordable ecu "upgrade", or about which of the other two products i should get, or combine the two, help me out here....

P.S. I have V2 intake, mugen style headers, hi-flow cat, tsudo cat-back, AEM pulleys....

A VAFC would be great for that setup. I didn't know that the GReddy Emanage would work with our cars?

get a hondata S200 system and put on it, then take it to a shop and get it tuned, you will be satisfied how many miles does your "shifto-matic" have on it, because i know a couple of people that had tranny problems right around 130K with those autos

You need OBD1 to use Hondata. VAFC2 would be fine for your setup.

oh yeah.....and i was told by "hondata"....that they have no products for my car cuz its an automaic...and for 91si4ws, i got 90,000 miles, and a "brand new" rebuilt transmission was done only a year after i bought it....sucks cuz i heard a 5spd swap could have been the same i paid, which was $2200...so i guess with that saying from you guys and what hondata told me, i should go with vfac2, unless you guys feel good about greddy and my setup on my car now??????
