Super AVCR (Boost Controller)

Super AVCR (Boost Controller) I was wondering if this product is really worth buying or not. Please give me your opion if you have one and you think it is worth buying or not. Is this product like the apexi v-tech controller for civics?

Boost controllers control the amount of PSI a turbo makes if you HAVE A TURBO. If you don't have a turbo, you dont need a boost controller. smile

The VTEC controller is for VTEC. VVTL-i and VTEC are VERY different. Please do not confuse the two.

So far, the only product on the market that will allow you to tweak vvtli is the apex'i powerfc. it is a FULL replacement of your stock ECU. It is fully programable and needs dyno tuning. With this power fc, you can raise or lower your vvtli engagement and raise or lower your fuel cutoff. It does other awesome things too.

how much does that thing cost? (apex controller)

To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

The Apex'i S-AFC allows you to adjust your AIR/FUEL ratios.

The low down on this product on our cars is that it doesn't do much. If you do get a gain, supposedly the stock ECU overrides the changes you had made back to stock ratios.
