Apex'i makes the S-AFC II (there were 2 previous models that did the same basics but are only available used anymore). Other companies such as HKS made similar units, but in my experiance the S-AFC from Apex'i seems to be the standard.

What this unit does is intercept and tweak the air to fuel mixture to allow for larger injector/fuel set ups. It does this on the unit by adding or subtracting fuel at various (user selectable) RPM points on a -50 -0- 50 scale. It's user friendly, you just have to know enough to know why you're adjusting where, and have the other tools needed to tell you that information.

A boost gauge is a must. EGT gauge is good. Wide band 02 is nice. and either a dyno or pocket logger.

It hooks up to the wire harness that plugs into the ecu. Around 5-8 wires dont remember exactely.

I have one for sale in perfect cond. if you are interested. All the paperwork and installation mani. inc. $150.
