Hey,
I was wondering if anyone here that is running an apex-i afc could pass on some info about the install. Did you have it professionally installed. Or does anyone have some wiring diagrams they could pass along.
-Thanks

I have it installed in my 93 EGT and can supply a simple wiring diagram for cars with manual transmission. Please note that a MAP sensor from a turbo car will be needed in order for the SAFC to work with our cars.

Ok, I would want to know this as well, since I will be working on my Turbo this winter and want to know how to install this...

Orlando I got your diagrams, but haha I´m a moron and dont really get it. But then again I dont have the AFC yet, so when it gets here I´ll start shooting questions at you on a regular basis.

Yep! you will understand it all when you get the SAFC and see the wires. BTW the map sensor is from a 1988 dodge shadow turbo, you can pick one up at the junkyard or autoparts store.

Apex´i makes a map sensor that hooks up to their AFC, its to go in place of the TPS. I think I´m just going to pick up one of those...since the wires are already there and color matched.

Do you recommend doing this ? Or should I just use my friends for a Turbo Sunbird ?

the HKS Super AFR is better then the S-AFC, the HKS has 11 control points plus a seperate idle controller vs. the Apexi´s 8 control points. THis may not seem like allot but those extra control points REALLY make life easier

Well, the one sold by Apex-i is prob more money. the one i used works fine and cost very little at a junk yard. It´s very simple, 1 signal line, 1 Voltage ref and a ground. I was not aware that Apex-i sold a MAP sensor for the SAFC.

PPC, I read a bit on the HKS S-AFR, sounds nice but i don´t think it would work with our cars, it does not support flap sensors.

The HKS Super AFR is the very first airflow meter correctional device in the industry with a built in CPU. The advantage of having a built in CPU is that instead of making corrections to the airflow meter voltage, the characteristics of the airflow meter is inputted in the CPU so it can calculate the most accurate amount of air flow. Since the correction will be made to this specific intake volume, the correction ratio of fuel will be precise and proportionally correct.

The Super AFR is compatible with virtually any fuel-injected Import or Domestic, 12Volt, 2-12cylinder vehicle that utilizes a hot wire, Karmen Vortex, or pressure sensor. The internal CPU allows it to be versatile and be utilized on many of the newer type airflow meters. Also incorporated in the Super AFR is the ability of idle air/fuel ratio corrections as modification progress and require further specific tuning levels. The response function, similar to the one in the VPC, allows for adjustments to the fuel settings upon throttle inputs to improve driveability and performance.

The EIDS function is automatically programmed with the data from the initial self-learning calibration and is automatically activated to correct sudden imbalances in air/ratios from discharge valves upon deceleration.

Well, this may seem dumb, but one of the main reasons why I´m turned on to the AFC is the single fact that...it just looks cool with the VFD.

chicks dig it...so it goes in the scort, as long as it will make it all work.

I had no idea what vehicle it was going on.. I didn´t realize that some of the escort engines HAD aL-monotronic system , that´s a very rare thing in the entire industry... most cars went either K-Jettronic or L jettronic/motronic back them. ( heated wire )

Yu,p before the 96 model, all 91-95 Escort GTs have a flap AFM. In 96 they switched to OBD II and to the heated wire AFM.

Yep one of the only things I HATE about my 93GT....but then again one of the things that makes our scorts unique. Also one of the few things that when we know how it works and why its different, it just makes us look like tuners that actually know what we´re doing.

(probably one of the reasons why scort owners just dont throw they´re scorts on the bottle without being sure how we can adjust our a/f ratio for safety.)

Scort or Honda, mechanically, not all that different...the difference is in the owner.

Ok...this is all nice about the GT´s.

but what about the LX´s here.
I´ll be needing a good stand-alone soon since the Merker ECU won´t work on a car with EDIS. (Damn!)

This might be a stupid question but what good would the merker ecu be, and since i plan on turboing my car should i grab the ecu from the merker in the yard i go to?
