End Of Some Apexi Powerfc Models


paulr33

Recommended Posts

This was originally listed as an "End of Sale" notice but it appears Apexi are dropping some of the least popular models. There also appears to been some supply issues with some of the processor used in some of the models (NEC chip for the Skyline units)

After about 1 to 2 years of rumors that the PowerFC would be discontinued this time more rumours have surfaced.

The are more rumours found here on the rx7club. http://www.rx7club.com/showthread.php?t=596718

Some more discussion on the topic here on the gtrcanada club. http://forums.gtrcanada.com/viewtopic.php?t=11147

PowerFC AP Engineering versions - All models discontinued

PowerFC Pro versions - All models discontinued

# AE86 discontinued model

# BG5 discontinued model

# ECR33 discontinued model

# EG6 discontinued model

# EG9 discontinued model

# EK9 discontinued model

# EP82 discontinued model

# EP91 discontinued model

# ER34 discontinued model

# FC3S discontinued model

# GC8 discontinued model

# HCR32 discontinued model

# JZA70 discontinued model

# JZA80 discontinued model

# JZX90 discontinued model

# JZZ30 discontinued model

# RNN14 discontinued model

# ST205 discontinued model

# SW20 discontinued model

Some models have been discontinued as they weren't popular, some removed as the FCON dominated that model (toyota supra) and some were removed as they have run out of NEC processors (Skyline R33/R34). We are unsure at this stage if any more models will be cancelled or removed, or if its just a reshuffle of the crap models, and clear out some old unpopular models. AP Engineering no longer exists as a company, so the AP Eng versions have gone. There are of course many many units in the public market so there should be plently for sale second hand it just means these models aren't sold as new anymore.

We have no news of a replacement unit (if in fact one is coming??), specs, feautres, name etc so if you have any information on unit, or details please post them up

There is a few ECU components that have been discontinued so this maybe the reason.Wolf V400 used some of these parts that are no longer avalible but the new stuff is light years ahead as used in the V500 so id say a new PFC will come out with the same new generation parts also.

Its the first I've noticed but the R33 and R34 PFC's are no longer available from Nengun with a in bold writing stating they are discontinued. The R32's aren't even listed any more.

So I'd say its definitely looking as if the pfc for the GTST at least has reached the end of the road.

    • Found an hour free from the kid & wife, decided that I needed to have a selectable rev limter for skid pans (which I go here and there). Knowing a high RPM on a wet skid pan will just result in too much wheel speed, having a selectable mang mang limiter essentially will limit the wheel speed when I'm bashing 2nd gear   1x can button, 4x limiters: 7000 rpm 7500 rpm 8000 rpm 8600 rpm  
    • But, the reason I remembered this thread was I had to change the rear pads yesterday, and jeebus how hard did they make it. Clearly nissan US engineers are not the same as nissan Japan's people. Apparently they had issues with pads falling out of the rear brakes in the very early models, so this is the "improved" version.  They are a large single piston design, here is the devil's spawn   You can see the pads have 2 tabs to hold them into the mounting bracket at the bottom And at the top there is a large spring clip that stops them sliding out. To change the rear pads: 1. Undo the top mounting bolt for the calliper cylinder 2. Undo the lower mounting bolt as well. That's right, you can't just leave one bolt in place and let the calliper rotate outwards to hold it while you change the pads, the whole thing has to come off the hub. Note, the pads stay in place in the calliper, because.... 3. The outer pad is held to the calliper by a spring clip on the back of the pad, and 2 tabs on the front which go into 2 holes cast into the housing You can see the channel for the tabs at the top, the only way to pull the pad out is upwards and out. This is the outer rear pad once removed 4. OK, that was the easy one. The inside pad is also held in place by spring clips.  In my case I was putting 50% worn spare pads back in while I wait for new ones from the US, but it is not possible to just slide the pad out, the piston needs to be pushed back 100% to allow the spring clips on the back of the pad to clear the piston 5. Happily, at least the rear disc just slides off the hub then, no bearings etc to deal with Reinstallation is just as painful as removal, as once the pads are in the calliper, you need to slip the lower pad tabs over the mounting bracket, then tap the calliper back into place while not mashing the dust covers of the mounting bolts. All that for a solid (not vented!) 14mm x 320mm disc, and tiny pads. Because it's a big vehicle and a single piston design, the pads don't wear evenly by literally mm across the surface That was a hell of a lot of work for a very crap design.
    • So, it's been a really long time since I updated this thread. (like, 5 years long time). The Titan is going great, we've put about 120,000klm on it, and other than having to replace the radiator because it was running hot when towing, there have been no real problems.  It has been used pretty hard between towing and going everywhere, lots of dirt/off road driving.  Get very bogged once at the back of our property, but to be fair we also managed to bog our patrol trying to get it out so it was pretty bad (managed to winch them both out in the end). Those fancy steps are also broken because the pins in both sides seized and the manufacturer won't answer re spare parts. Overall it is doing well, plenty of people space in the king cab, and still a good load space with a full size bed. The folding cover over the rear is great, closes things up most of the time but can open as much as required for taller or longer loads.   Towing is going great as well, it is very stable and has plenty of power. It still sucks to park in regular spaces, but living outside the city that is not such a big deal, we just pick our spots.
    • Everyone knows that's stage 37 stupid😂
