S-AFC

Alright, I know this is everyones favorite subject to debate, so lets begin. I have made major air flow mods to my Celica and feel its time to invest in an S-AFC. I have been eyeballin the Apex-i and was wanting feedback from people who have experience with this or other brands. People? spineyes

It is good for GTS or turboed cars, it will give you alittle bit of increase with above 2 types of cars. What sucks is our ECU has an automatic adjustment on the fuel/air curve it will trying to adjust to some setting it likes, thus the perfectly tuned S-AFC setting to your liking is not as good anymore.
1 recommandation... DON'T GET OTHERS NUMBERS!!! Reason is every car is different, though numbers will work it will not work as well. Get it tuned. Goto www.newcelica.org in the So Cal section there is a shop that has dyno days once in awhile, get it tuned on that day smile

That'd be cool, but So Cal is a hell of a drive from Charlotte NC!

Get your performance mods in the car first before getting this thing smile

I agree about the east coast meetings. I live in Goldsboro NC, and I would absolutely love it if NC and SC and VA could have a celica meet like all you guys in SO CAL. We really need to do a meet with these states...especially NC and SC since I live in the Carolina's.

Well I may be switching over to a Apexi PowerFC soon which means I have an S-AFC, but thats still in the air nothing definate yet. I got the turbo ofcouse relocated the Intake to where CAI usually is, go from turbo manifold to custom downpipe, to custom straight pipe, to custom exhaust setup... I believe this is why my 7.1psi gives me 211.6HP to the wheels on a GT, or else I should be looking at around 200HP to the wheels.

Where are the shops in Mooresville? I have considered the Nascar (pukes) shops to help, but I dont want to deal with all the redneck fuggers. However, I do need someone with experience trying to get the A/F ratio set correctly. You people that want to get together for a Carolina's Celica meet should do so one weekend soon at the Mooresville drag strip. Lets see who has the fastest Celica in NC!
