Ok, I used a apexi S-afc on my neon to tune it... I havent decided if I should pull it to throw it in a swift I may be obtaining soon...

I dont know wich will give me more power, the s-afc, or should I just throw in an aftermarket ecu...

anyone have any expirience on this?

I think it really depends on the rest of the mods. I you only have minor external mods, like intake, header, exhaust, maybe cams... then go with the AFC.

If you've messed around with compression, cam timing, boost, etc, a standalone is probably best.

I've used neither, so take that advice with a grain of salt.

go with a "tom's" chip. You're mods are minor enough to not really require anything else. You could probably squeeze out a couple of extra ponies with an AFC, but I don't think it would be worth it.

lol, what do you mean it wouldnt be worth it? I got my safc for $150 USD, anyway, I already own the safc, not the toms chip, and I cant find the website to buy toms chip, all the links are dead... anyway, there Is a writeup on how to hook the safc up to the ecu, but I dont quite understand the writeup, it dosent make sense to me, is there another write up I dont know about? has anyone ever tuned an N/A swift with a safc?

I mean:

THE COST OF AN AFC WOULDN'T BE WORTH THE MEASLY 2HP GAIN.

If you don't want other's opinions, why did you bother asking?

I meant, I already own the afc, lol, I would have to spend money for toms chip :roll: , Im good with the opinions, but does anyone know of a detailed writeup on installing an afc in a swift?

I think im actually going to have to get both, I cant cancel out the rev limiter with the afc, I couldnt on my neon anyway, and toms chip also cancels the speed limiter dosent it?

thanks...

I think rvengineering has installed an AFC and wasn't too happy with it, apparently it was a PITA to install and get running, I have just installed a Microtech ECU on my gti cultus engine, it starts and idles like a dream without any external cold idle control, have not raced with it yet but so far i am extremely happy with it.
