go with S-AFC or V-AFC, cause it is better to start with the expensive stuff and leave the cheap for later. You can buy pullies anytime. they are cheap compared to the AFC. AFC can increase 9-15 HP (i think, but in that range) to your ride thats if you dodnt have any mods on, so since you have an intake, headers,high flow cats and a cat back exhaust, then the AFC will satify you certainly!
and good luck

the S stands for super. The S-AFC is a fuel computer that adjusts fuel/air ratio by modifying the air-flow meter/MAP sensor signal on your cars ECU. while the V-AFC combines fuel computer functions with a VTEC engagement controller. V-AFC is better, it does the S-AFC job and controls VTEC.
so in conclusion for better use:
VTEC civic (EX) better to use the V-AFC (control fuel curve and VTEC high and low points)
non-VTEC (LX...etc) better use the S-AFC (only controls the fuel curve and throtle position)

I hope i helped out!

You might not know this, but Apex-i is having a hard time getting the VAFC to work with the 2001-up civic VTEC mapping(in the ECU). It flat out wont work unless someone found a way for it to work recently...i would have one if it worked.

later

PS: It doenst work on iVTEC either(RSX and Civic Si owners only should worry)

If you have good amount of mods you'll gain more horsepower, cause you'll have the need to alter the fuel curve. But if your car is bone stock(or close), there is no need to alter the fuel curve. Saying that, you should put this unit at the end of your to-buy list.

Apexi V-AFC

RedDragon333 will become famous soon enough
Everyone has had a hard time with this and i asked Honda that and they said that "as of this point they are so new that the only way to get it to truly work without setting off engine light is to have Honda Tune it and install it and not to set the VTEC engagment at ungodly levels" my dealership has installed a few and tuned quite a few more on the 2k1s and they work fine i bought one as my first mod and waited to install it till i got the bolt on mods
