Please post a link. Anything by the typical Honda kid is always very entertaining reading.Getshocked.ca said:That was the topic of the forum i saw this in
"I SAW THE NEW CRX SI"
and then there were 3 pages of speculation if it could have been a honda test car and finaly someone posted these pictures
Sounds like you bought yourself a real headache.vkykam said:Anyhoo, the car does have a salvaged title on it, was repainted from black to white, has a modified intake with a Apex fuel air controller, and supposedly a modified exhaust, and xenon headlights. Also of course is the cut-a-way wheel skirts and the CRX decals on the rear, both of which I'm hoping to get rid of.
Take it out and sell it on eBay. The S-AFC/V-AFC is designed to allow you some control over the A/F ratio by intercepting and modifying the values from the air flow meter (we don't have one) or MAP sensor. I've used them many times before and they work well. The V version allows Vtek switchover control.vkykam said:The Apex unit is a VAFC-II unit. As far as I know, it's wired and hooked up, but not programmed. The car runs fine from what I can tell. I have no clue how to use or program the VAFC unit, so I'm leaving it as is until I have the time to go through the manual, if I can understand it that is...

Now obviously on a car like the Insight, you DO NOT want to be messing with the values coming from the MAP sensor, and there's no point in controlling the Vtek switchover point. No good can come of it and all you're going to end up with is a car that doesn't run right, kills cats, gets poor mileage and has constant CEL problems. This device was never designed for OBD-II cars, especially one like the Insight.
Unfortunately you can't. The engine harness would have to be cut in at least one place to install the unit. However if you follow the S-AFC harness back to where it splices into the engine harness it should be easy to reverse the damage by just reconnecting the appropriate wires.vkykam said:I'm assuming I can leave the harness/connectors in place, and just disconnect the unit? I haven't looked at it to see how it's hooked up.
Thx for your input.
