Is this setup more reliable than the AFC hack?

Default Is this setup more reliable than the AFC hack?

I was thinking of going with Prelude 345cc Injectors + 8:1 FMU + S-AFC. What do you think? I'll be boosting about 9-10 lbs. on my DOHC ZC.

Not more reliable due to the fuel pressure at the injectors.

So besides fuel pressure, would you say this is better?
it does nothing to mess with your timing thats 1 thing that is better. on honda tech.com there is a guy running 3 bar map sensor with fmu 450cc and a afc to tune it. he has the setting at 0 instead of like -36 if you no what i mean.
just using the fmu to rise fuel pressure. i have been thinking of trying the fmu with larger injectors and afc to fine tune it.

You dont think it would run ok? that is what my local shop said to run but with 390cc or 310cc dont know what it was. i am running the hack and they think i am crazy because of the timing issue. what do you think?

why dont you just buy 450 dsm injectors ($50) get and ECu and get it chipped ($75-$125) and be happier and safer than spending a couple $100 on a setup that wont idle for ---- where you have three devices controlling how much fuel your engine sees. Yeah, i dont see anything going wrong there (sarcastic)

Chipping is way out of my ball park. I got the afc because thats all i know how to run. other wise i pry spent about the same on the vafc and 450s. could have bought a burner and some chips but have do idea howto do that
