I'm planning on getting an Apex'i VAFC very soon but the only thinkg that is holding me back is the tuning. I know I need to get down to a dyno, but I don't live near one. I live in a tiny hole in the ground called Tehachapi, it is near Palmdale. Anyone know a good place to get my VAFC dynoed and tuned. I don't mind traveling if the shop is worth it. Oh yeah....that would be in the So Cal area. Thanx.

i heard the vafc is awesome. in a mag they put it on and finally got 8 more whp from a IS300. i've only seen them put on higher end engines and vtec engines...would it help any on a F22A4...aka 130hp non vtec honda accord engine from early 90s.
and would it affect emissions any?
thanks

a VAFC wont work on a non-VTEC car. you can get the SAFC. the SAFC is for non-VTEC cars

i've never heard of a controller that controls both of them. you can get the VAFC and the AVCR. the VAFC will control the VTEC and the AVCR is a boost controller that looks just like the VAFC. VAFC is around $300 and AVCR is around $500

hell for that much you may as well spend alittle more and get a AEM plug and play stand alone engine management system
youre comparing $800 worth of electronics and an AEM system that sells for around $1700. theres a ton more you can do with the AEM and the Hondata (Hondatas only available for OBD1 and pre-OBD) but you also pay for it. Hondata is around $700 just for the regular set-up. add the turbo control to it and its around $1200. so its a bit more money

true...depends how far you want to go with it, and how much further you expect to mod your car

if i were to add a turbo to a car...i'd definitely choose the plug and play...heck...that leaves the world to be explored
