    I heard that they aen't hard t tune, but I have never used one myself. As for wiring it shouldn't be that bad. I know some people make jumper harness's so that it just comes pre-wired for the vafc.

    Got one on my 95 civic ex on a JDM B18c. It was on it when I got the car....another friend of mine doesn't have one and I always stay 3 car lengths ahead....problem is it was tuned by some pros for racing...I'm a techie so I downloaded the manual....installation is easy....tuning isn't...give me a couple more days and I should have it down and i'll let you know...;)

    The VAFC's can be installed as a piggy-back on the ecu WITHOUT cutting wires... If my memory serves me right, www.boomslang.com sells the conversion harness' to install the VAFC without any cutting or wiring.
