    Depends on which one and what you do with it.

    Yup.

    Fields, VAFC, etc- they're tuning devices, not power adders.

    Outside of the realm of performance tuning (in which it excells) a vtec controler'll aid emissions testing and long trip fuel economy.
    Is the vafc as good as the safc at fuel control? (i.e. dsm 450s & t3/t4 helper)

    performance tuning? with all do respect- give me a break. At best, its for making QUICK on the fly adjustments.

    I guess it wouldnt be a power adder but it helps cause then you can tune your VTEC engagements so you can get the power of vtec

    They both do the same thing,with the exception of vtec control.

    depends on your mods, i saw great improvments with "performance tuning" on the vafc. not everyone needs a hondata, tecIII, aem ems, etc...

    I've always liked my Hondata works well for changing vtec point... it also runs about the same price as Apex-I's units then again for some reason people think hondata cost an arm and a leg I paid 325 or 350 installed with the program of choice and I can also change rev limit, vtec point, shift light, and for about 5 mins of my shops time I can change my program to a Teg Type R or run a stock SI or or or...
