Apexi P-NBC Programable ECU

they came out with a new ECU.

said to be in the middle class of S-AFC and Power FC.

price will be cheaper than Power FC and just a tad higher than S-AFC.

dono if this will work with our ECUs... lol

oh by the way, this will not be a replacement of stock ECU, you connect it like the S-AFC i think.

If it's connected like the S-AFC (taps into wires), then I doubt it would work. The only things that work on our cars are piggyback ECUs and full replacement ECUs. Piggybacks plug in inline between the stock ECU and wiring harness, which allows them to intercept the stock ECU's signal, alter it, and output a new signal without the ECU catching on to what they're doing. The S-AFC trys to reprogram the stock ECU, but eventually the ECU will catch on and override the S-AFC's settings.

Interesting. Depending on how adjustable this thing is, it could be the solution for 03+ GTS owners. thumbsup
