Apexi Neo for i4 accord Tuning option
I found this article while i was being bored and was looking up on other EMS/ piggy back alternative for everyone else that is not planing to do a headswap/ Force induction and just want to work with what they have on the accord while is full bolt on.
Yes, I found it on crappy import tuner but anyway check it out.
As you may know the k20a3 aka ep3/rsx base motor has econo vtec like our accord. So this might be an nice alternative for people who want to run some kinda of ems/piggy back. You can see an increase of
1500 to 3500 HP range: 1 to 3
3500 to 5500 HP range: 2 to 4
5500 to redline HP range: 5 to 7
1500 to 3500 TQ range: 2 to 3
3500 to 5500 TQ range: 3 to 4
5500 to redline TQ range: 4 to 5
It is decent but I think you would really be better off spent the money on other mod or just saving for hondata.
My estimate price for this is
400 for apexi afc neo *maybe you can find it on ebay for 250-350*
190 for boomslang harness for AT *170 for MT*
400 for 2hr of tuning to fix the oem baseline and smooth thing out *only an estimate I have no idea how long it will take and price also*
200 for wideband O2 of course
so about 1200 for maybe 5-10whp increase and maybe 5-10wtq increase *due to our larger displacement*
So compared to hondata kpro it can cost a lot more 1350 for hondata + cham famous harness, 200 for wideband O2, and like 600 for full MAP tuning.
so about 2150 for ~20whp and ~20wtq.
So given that the apexi afc neo set up cost half as much as kpro and have a lot of maybe I would suggest you either save for kpro or for you k24a8 guys the flash pro if they can get it to work on the k24a8 *see other trend on here*
I would get this set up only if it were close to 500 buck. But I must say this if you are not going to cams, headswap, force, and induction. This might be a good opinion to get ever little ounce of HP.
Another thing does anyone know if the accord i4 o2 sensor is wideband? I checked out the OE # for bosch and it said it was wideband.
