Just go to the Apex-i US site and look under documentation. The operation manual and wiring pin outs can be found there, all translated into englsh :D

Easy to fit, will look nice at night, but to actually adjust the fueling you need to get the car on a rolling road with a wideband o2 readout. The limitation of the afc is it cannot control the ignition map. As a result, it the UK, the Dastec unichip is the prefered device.

Look on the bright side, it will look great when fitted :D

so i can use it without dyno tuning it?? but would i be alble to see %thr. and RMP??
When you buy the SAFCII brand new. The settings are set at 0% which means you can plug it in, but no adjustments are going to be made to the way your engine performs. It'll be like if it wasnt there. Unless of course they have some sort of preloaded setting which i havent heard of.

I'm sure u can see the rpm and throttle%, but I would suggest not to change any air/fuel settings unless it's on a dyno, or you happen to have a "Wideband air/fuel ratio gauge" and not a $50 dollar ebay one either.

IMO if someone is to get a SAFC, they should also be looking to dyno tune it so you squeeze the extra hp out of your engine. Otherwise, I think it would be a waste of money. ... THats why I haven't installed mine and i've had it for 3 months... Just waiting to instal a ported/camed head so I have a reason to spend the money to tune it.

Sure you can install it and look how it works and stuff no plm. I'm just suggesting not to actually change any air/fuel ratios unless it's dyno tuned.

Sorry I miss read the thread, you're buying it used, so that means there is probably changed settings on it already. What vehicle did it come off of?
