Default VTECH controllers ???

so i was wondering about on ebay today, saw this little module that supposed to let you set when you want the vtech to kick in... are these things foreal, or what? it would be awesome to set up my vtech to kick in at around 4400rpm when max torque is acheived instead of 5300rpms...

thanks everyone for ya responses.

Kinda like the V-AFC in my car engaging VTEC (no H) at 3200 rpm's and whenever I hit 65% throttle body?

Never heard of it!

Anywhere online & a lot of speed shops. Apexi V-AFC, Apexi V-AFC2, Apexi V-AFC NEO ..... there are also other manufacturers, but I have the V-AFC2.

VTEC already engages anywhere from 2300 to 3800 RPM. The 5300 RPM engagement is an incorrectmyth. It would be pointless for it to engage that high as most driversrarely everreach 5300 rpm. You will not "feel" it engage in an SOHC car like ours either.
I wouldn't waste my money on a vtec controller unless I was DOHC.

The guy who made that post and thosevideos does not have a VTEC controller. he merely installed an indicator light showing when vtec kicks in by tapping into the vtec wire in the ECU.

All I know is that I can feel my VTEC engage, it now behaves how I want it to and I can smoke a stock 6th gen Accord ..... yes I harldy have a stock car, but nothing more than bolt-ons. I'd also agree that the computer's AF adjustment is what is making a bit more power, but the VTEC part improves how the engine behaves. I wouldn't call it a waste of money, just that you have to know what to expect out of it. Most people expect things other than what it can do.

I like it. To maximize it's effect, you will have to learn how to set the VTEC part by yourself. The AF part needs a dyno-tune and it can be difficult to find a shop that knows enough about the unit to set all of the adjustments properly. Apexi lists shops that they recommend on their website. DRT in Queens did mine.
