i know, so what? i just had to post this. im gonna check it out soon! maybe i'll ask them about installing an S-AFC cause i am thinking about it as my next mod and they are an authorized apexi dealer.

The next best thing for you is to get rid of the shitty dpfi. You are limited in any gains you can make with 2 injectors. You are better off spending 200-300 on the mpfi swap. Your car will feel so much better, trust me.
 
youre right jeff. youre right. i dont know what i was thinking. actually, i was thinking why my car often runs rich..especially after long bouts of traffic, and i started looking for ways to keep the air/fuel mixture optimized all the time.

OK...to make up for this thread being so lame/retarded...here are some more (more interesting) pics of area 51.

these pics are from area 51's skunkworks tuning facility. it is in a secret location somewhere in irvine.

The problem with the MPFI swap with a d15 block is that California's stupid emissions laws...(actually they are not that stupid, they can just get annoying, smog used to be way worse here.) I am in the process of my MPFI swap i am just waiting for my harness, and my resistor box. I am going to run MPFI until summer, when i drop my b16 in. So i will not have to deal with smog shit.

LOL cool, but i found those area51 pics on the internet. havent actually been to their shop yet. but i did see the spoon ITR today and here's that pic of it in front of inline 4. the hatch next to it has no engine. im thinking they are gonna put a jun or spoon engine in it since thats what they sell.

im reluctant to say that it isnt a spoon itr, granted its a JDM R, but usually all spoon's cars are painted light blue and yellow.

IM sure it sure does have some spoon goodies on it :)

I agree it's not a REAL spoon ITR. But since inline4 has it. I am sure it's LOADED full of Spoon goodies! Plus I can see the Swan on the side of the car. :D
