I think you're gonna have to have a specific question to convince us you have read the FAQ.

I don't know if it can get more specific than this. I know nothing about turbos, I know nothing about hondas. The only reason that I am doing this for my girlfriend is because the guy that was doing it (her ex-boyfriend) hates me, when he found out we were dating he quit the project. He refused to tell us what was left to be done, and he took the owners manual for the afc and the turbo timer, not only do i have some questions about the afc, i don't even know how the hell to use it. That is why I asked specifically about the Apexi SAFC, and I wanted to talk to someone personally who knows about that one in specific.

you're going to make approx. zero friends real fast; post specific questions to the forum so people can see exactly what info you're looking for. Like "which setting do I use for map sensor" etc. You're going to get flamed for sure, but that's what you get for not wanting to take the time to read and understand the instructions (which are also available on www.apexi.com)

Ok, the car has a D16a6 in it. The turbo is a rebuilt 14B. Apexi SAFC. DSM 450's. The question is, and trust me this is as specific as i can get which is why i wanted to talk to someone instead of getting flamed by a whole group: Now what do I do? What needs to be tuned? How do I do it? What rough settings should I set it to for starters? How do I do that? Trust me, I have more, but I think that this will be a great start to me getting flamed. Also, I read the faq and got some numbers (didn't help, don't know what to do with them) and I read the stuff on apexi's site (also didn't help).

go to the apexxi website. they have the manual there and it shows you step by step how to program it. for base settings on the vafc you can go to the FAQ in the forced induction section and get base settings there. as far as tunning it perfectly you're gonna need a wideband or you can take it to a shop with a dyno and they'll tune the vafc for you.

like i said i didn't understand the apexi web site. I read the faq on this site, got some numbers, and don't know what to do with them. And good luck finding a shop with a dyno that can tune an import in north dakota.

You: "how do I tie my shoe?"
Us: "you cross the laces, thread it through here, and loop it"
You: "that didn't help at all, can someone else tell me how to do it?"

and on, and on...

seriously. If you read the faq, and you read the SAFC instructions, and you still have NO CLUE, you should put down the tools and step away from the car. I mean, they're no more complicated than stereo instructions. If you want somebody to hold your hand and do it for you, you're probably going to be looking at paying a shop to do it.

If you asked something like, "okay, i'm in the sensor menu, which one do I choose?" you'd get a better answer. but...

"Now what do I do? What needs to be tuned? How do I do it? What rough settings should I set it to for starters? How do I do that?"

are you kidding me? do you even know what a specific question IS??

you can tune it with the stock o2 by reading the voltage it puts out with a digital voltmeter $18.00 at radio shack.
just hook up the green or white wire (i can't remember which one it was)to the positve cable on the voltmeter and the negative cable on the VM to a ground. then you let your car warm up and take it for a spin and record the readings. this link tells you the voltage to afr you should be tunning at. people will tell you it doesn't work cause the stock o2 isn't a wideband, that's BS it does work. i had my car tunned at a dyno w/vafc and i took the volt readings off the stock o2 sensor and they match the afr-volt scale that's on this link. this has been done for years but people over look it caause they want to see the afr not a voltage read out conversion, but it works
check out this link:

if you can't understand the apex website sell your car and buy a non boosted car. unless you have money to burn, do some work and call apexi. read read read
