    I own a B16 with a bunch of bolt ons. I will be doing more to the engine, Nitrous and head work. But those are future six months maybe a year projects. So basically this is a stock engine I just want to get the best performace out of my car and use controllers to help the engine from getting messed up. I am looking at a AFC NEO fuel controller and a 2 Step Rev Limiter. What are the advantages to both, and what are the down sides of them and are they worth the money two step is about $160 plus installing it and AFC NEO is $370. Any help would be great I know what 2 step controller does and what the AFC NEO does. Thanks in advance for your advice.

    I would recommend saving your money for now, and wait to do the big mods before worrying about tuning it. The dual stage rev limiter is pretty much a launch controller for drag racing as far as I know.

    honestly, my opinion, the 2 step right now would be pointless. its almost winter and the drag strips most likely will be closed. Thats something i would wait and get next spring.

    Not to mention those things are best used when you are running SLICKS at optimum temp.

    Street tires are too unpredictable for a rev limiter. You could potentially have to re-calibrate it every time you launch.


    Stop being a woman and learn how to slip a clutch.

    I have a six puck racing clutch and it does not just slip plus I have 17" toyo proxes and they grip like a mother. I can rev the engine to 2500 rpm but I want the same results every time. So thanks for your advice.

    Again, learn to drive your car.

    If the parts you use are too advanced for you then replace/change them.


    A rev limiter has no practical use outside of a race track. It also needs re-calibration depending on the temperature.

    If toyo proxies grip like a mother, then you have never driven on a real tire.

    Seriously Toyo Proxes and grip shouldn't be used in the same sentence unless 'don't have' is between them :lol:

    They are the worst tire ever.


    The only reason they are even popular is because they are heavily marketed thru pep-boyz, town-fair-tire, and the like.

    Stupid ricer rubber.
