Default piggyback computer questions..

Well....I'm running a 1988 Subaru Justy, with stock internals, and a IHI RBH5 Turbo running 8 PSI bolted onto it.

it's running really quick right now.. but my ghetto AFC (potentiometer) is just costing me alot in fuel.

I've been looking at Apexi SAFC's and Greddy E-manage, and HKS SAFC.

Now..which one is the best for my application. I like that the Greddy system has the ability to controll an extra injector, which isn't a bad idea, seeing that i have extra injectors kicking around. And can tune it with my laptop instead of the stupid small screen on the other systems.

I think deciding factor might be cost. As my car isn't worth much, and the stinking AFC might well cost more than my car.

I have a line on an Apexi 1st generation SAFC for 300 CDN. But will this do what i want it too?? will it have the ability to put enough fuel in there while it's on boost??

I found the
meaning of life!


i've done seimilar search for my project. Ideal choice would be Emanage but due to price difference I went with Safc II (newest version). Now that i've had it for 2 month I think it would have been a better idea to spend extra money and get Emanage.

I say go with emanage and dont concentrate too much on saving a few $$. Later you'll be able to transfer it to a different car.

I have the split second FTC1. It is really simple to use, if you have a wideband to tune on it. They are inexpensive and worth while. Check it out.
