Default AFC hack but no check valves ?

I was reading up on one of the post for the F.A.Q. where a guy was using a AFC hack method on a honda and didn't need the use of check valves. I believe his setting were like -35% to -40% between 1,000-8,000 RPM's in all five gears. I don't get it. I have seen others using the AFC method with simuliar settings and they were using check valves. Did I just not read something right with the non-check valve method ? could someone clear this up for me ? Thanks.

I don't think anybody uses check valves with the hack. Its not needed. Read some more in this section. I'm sure this has been covered recently.

Check valves are not necessary, but maybe these people you're seeing are running over the 12 psi (which even leaning at 30% will still account for 10 psi) or maybe just to prevent their MAP sensor from blowing out if a boost spike hits.

You don't need the check valves when using the afc hack because you are lowering the map voltage input instead of the vaccumm/boost going to it.
