the hack is easier to ---- with....
but it advance your timing so you might want to either retard the base timing (which kills low end power) or add a BTM on top of it.
with Uberdata you need to get your ecu chipped, but basicly that`s all you need.. and you might want to buy a burner to make things easier IF you are planning to fine tune you map with a wide band.
i had the same question before,i actually went out and got a VAFC and BTM, but then i sold it all and end up using Uberdata, because:
1) set hi/lo thottle position vtec on/off rpm.
2) disable o2 heater
3) disbale close loop.
4) disable knock sensor
5) set idle rpm
6) set your fuel cut rpm
7) you got yourself a shift light with different rpm in different gear
adjustable lanch control
9) fuel map adjust by itself according to your fuel pressure/ injector sizing input.
10) adjust timing retard per lb of boost
11) FREE data logging which record MAP/TPS/RPM/AIR TEMP ands some other stuff. also O2 reading (can be use with wide band kits)
and a lot more function that i am sure others can tell you.
WELL..
yea just go with Uberdata.

BTW, i still remember BiGWIG told me "sell the VAFC and go with UBERDATA, THEN you can talk" :P

obviously, uberdata is better than AFC hack. So, my question is, how much does uberdata cost? I know it's "free" but how much would it cost to get my stock Obd2 96 civic DX to be able to run Uberdata? Not included tuning cause that would vary but going from stock to having uberdata. Also if anyone could pm/post me tuners in Austin Tx not farther than houston cause that would be pushing it driving that far un-tuned

i see it like this. with the hack its easy. for the timing issuee, add a ton of fuel and that solves it i ran the hack almost 2 years at 10psi plus. it works and gets the job done. the timing advance is really not that big of an issue unless your runinng too lean.i feel thats the issue with the hack, your either too lean and detonating, or pig rich and loosing some power due to that.

now im runing uberdata. i must say its nice to have a decent idle and sure it has more options but tunability sucks *****. you cant just run uberdata. youll also need tuning equipment like a widebad or your gona have to get your car dynoed and that also cost money. or you could run someone elses tuned bin an hope for the best. if you have acces to wideband or a dyno go with uber, because you will need to spend a lot of time tuning.

i remember with the hack, theres only one rule, better rich than lean.
uber is more complicated but better in the long run. your choice bub.

So is it possible to download someones set-up and just run that tune? cause there's one on Xenocron's website that has the same set-up I'm going to run and the same PSI
