AFC/ Vtec Controller

Hey Guys-

I'm lookin for a quick boost, and from what I hear this is something small that can make a difference. The product I'm lookin at is an Apex'i AFC NEO Vtec Controller for my '97 Prelude.. Is there anyone who can possibly give me some pros/cons, similar products, hints/tips on this device, or quite possibly some mods that will go along well with this :) ??

Anything will help.. thanks for your time!

I have the neo (well after tonight I'll have e-manage all)

I liked and dis like different things about it, it does have more points of fuel corection then any of the other vafc's or safc's but the way the vtec stuff was set up is kinda a pain in the ass to mess with being there are like 6 different ways to have it kick vtec in but with a good tuner you'll be fine man. On the looks side it cool looking and you can change the back ground colors and the button colors also but make sure you use the screen saver because it will burn the back ground pic into its lcd screen.

When I have more time I'll explain a bit more about it man but I'm in the middle of putting e-mange on my car so yeah lol.

i have the VAFC I....i have I/E/H and skunk2 cam gears, what im getting at is that they are good for basic bolt ons. you can adjust the vtec point...if your going for basic bolt on i suggest the NEO or VAFC....now if your going more in depth with your set up hondata would be ur best bet, someone correct me if im worng. hope that helps a bit

A VAFC or Neo is a great tuning tool if you have some basic mods. Things like your intake/header/exhaust. They're relatively cheap and (apparantly) it's not too hard to find somebody who can tune them well.

But they're both very limited in their tuning ability. If you plan on going past your basic mods they're a waste of time, just go with a Hondata and be done with it.

ya this definitely helps.. i have I/E/H as well and I have considered Hondata but seeing as how i have a spare motor to build, I decided it would be better to save for the better Hondata system for turbo model cars. thanks for the help.
