Talking Super AFC Neo?

Hi everyone,

Has anyone used the APEXi Super AFC Neo? (Linkage: http://www.rx7store.net/product_p/afc%20neo.htm)

I was wondering if it is any good. Has anyone used it? Pros? Cons?

Cheers,
Cody

16 points. (4 more then SAFC2)
50 Rpm incremints (200rpm for SAFC2)
Vtech Control (Possibly Pointless for us)

There are 3 wires to use from the Neo when controlling Vtech, I doublt we can use it to control solenoids for Aux or VDI ports. Seems like it modifies a signal just like it does with the AFM. It uses Airflow, Throttle and RPM to activate the vtech. 2 Vtech wires are from the Vtech solenoid and another is for a VTM signal. Maybe someone with a little more knowledge on Vtech systems can tell us how the the Vtech, electronically works and possibly we can have more control over out AUX or VDI ports.

To me, spending that much on something that has a feature you may not be able to use that you are paying for, which is the Vtech control, would be pointless. Worth more going to Rtek if you want something more then a SAFC2 which works plenty fine.

wiki it, dude! VTEC works by having two camshaft lobes on the intake and exaust cams, and switching these profiles at around 5000 RPM. What this does, is allow you to have both an economical, and high revving. fast engine in the same package. That's why 300HP civics that rtain VTEC can still have 30mpg!

I'm fairly certain that you can use this function to open the S5's electric solenoids for the 6 port induction if you mess with it a bit, and have an idea of how the system operates.

They also operate by oil pressure from what I understand, I just don't know how you would fo to wire up the electronic solenoids to the AFC Neo. Since if you look at the wiring diagram, it uses 2 wires for the vtech solenoids and another for VTM signal which I think is not on all vehicals with vtech
