Does anyone have an APEX'i Super Air-Fuel Controller (S-AFC) mounted on their 2000-2002 Hyundai Tiburon? If so, please reply to let us know how it works and what the install entails. Thanks.

In response yes i have one so do a number of other people on the board the installation is fairly simply for someone with basic auto electrical experience you need a schematic diagram for the ecm harness and a soldering gun. As a side note though it is actually SAFC super air flow convertor and is not designed to be used on mildly modified naturally aspirated vehicles i see alot of people doing this mod and the gain to price ratio for them is just not there the SAFC was designed to allow for piggyback fuel tuning as a low buck option for increased boost in a forced induction vehicle without the use of a programmable ecm or independant fuel managment.

I too have the SAFC installed in my car. My car is still N/A with a good amount of mods, and I do agree that the SAFC is really more for someone that has a boosted car, or highly modded car.

However, there is one note (i know Red could back me up on this one) Hyundai when putting in the stock config for the fuel/air with the ECM, they made the cars run rather pig rich after 4,500rpms. With the SAFC and a good dyno, you could help to lower the car to be normal at high RPMS.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

I agree...I'd wait until you're either HEAVILY modded N/A or forced induction before buying it. There's much more hp out there to be had for cheaper. I gotta admit though...it looks sweet as hell. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Also...the install is simple...I just hope you have good blood pressure. You'll be flipped upside down under your dash for a few hours. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
