How about no Scott. You definitely need to take your car to a shop where they have a dyno and tune it. If you mess around with your V-AFC, you can definitley set all parameters WAY off and your car will run like ****. A V-AFC and S-AFC DEFINITELY has to be dyno tuned. Where do you know where you're going to make your power without a dyno?

Do you have cylinder head work or do you think just by advancing or retarding your VTEC crossover point you'll be able to gain about 30whp? It isn't going to happen. If you set your VTEC point too low, you can have extensive wear on your valvetrain.

Don't mess wih it yourself!!!! Take it to a shop with a dyno and do a few pulls. They'll find the best Xover between the high / low cams. Mine was set at 5250 RPM (Turbo B20/VTEC). I thought from what I'd read, and discussed with other people, the optimum Xover would be around 4800 RPM. You could spend quite a bit of time trying to figure it out and still be wrong. The computer doesn't lie.

My boy Tommy from Redline Motorsports in Savannah Georgia tuned my VAFC II to 5k
