Default Another Apexi S-AFC 2 ???

Ok, I own a 98 2.5RS. Mods include:
JC Sports intake w/ K&N filter
Borla headers
High flow CAT
Stromung SS catback with Dual tip muffler

On to the question:
I was interested in buying the Apexi S-AFC 2, but I am not the knowledgable about installing it. Anyone here with a 98rs that has installed one themself? Do you think its a good idea for me to do it or have it done professionally? Does anyone offer or can offer detailed instrutions and pics of the install? Is it hard? Can I seriously screw things up?

Please Help,
STI27

Since I have gotten no response to this thread, I have a different question. Would I be better off getting the SAFC II or just get the Pro ECM. I dont have much knowledge of tuning if I were to get the SAFC II and since no one here has any info on installing it into a 98RS, I thinking of getting the Pro ECM chip instead.

Any Thoughts?

Either are easy to install, but the SAFC will require at least and AF gauge to tune... You might be able to tune to the knock sensor on the V2, not sure... the proECM is a plug it in and go application... choice is up to you... to tune or not to tune? that is the question... you'll probably get a bit more power from the AFC...

Having a '99 and a Torque Chip II, I now want an S-AFC. Plug and play is nice but I want to have the ability to get as much as I can out of my engine.

So I say, go for the S-AFC.

Ok, thanks for the responses. But how easy is it to tune the SAFC for someone that doesnt know alot about it? I dont want to blow anything up.

It's easiest with 2 people... one to watch the tach and one to watch the AF or EGT... with the v2 if you can tune off of the knock sensor, that would make it very easy, but I'm not sure... haven't experienced the v2...
