hey guys, just bought a POWER FC. I was wondering what you guys think of them, and whats your experiences....ive heard nothing but good news...i actually have a MICROTECH ltx-12s which are a fantastic ECU but not good for economy, which my car is daily driven so its essential. I also like the user friendly features of the pfc...

cheers....

I think it's more who tunes it than what type of computer it is. Being so common there are lots of places that can tune them.

The PFC is good in that you can easily check if there is something a little unusual going on. Another big plus is that it lets you know if there is excessive knock, maxed out injectors and i think AFM, through the dash light. So you can instantly back off.

Congrats on getting the power fc, should be picking mine up end of this week or next week. Is it true you need to upgrade your AFM when you plug in a power fc? I realise that it's a good upgrade to have done anyway but is it necessary straight away?

Nope, but it is recommended as there ain't much head room on the stock one when you start modding, upping boost etc.

Almost always a 300ZX 80mm airflow meter.

Yeah, figured a z32 would do the job, just need to get my hands on one and so do a few other ppl on these forums by the looks of it. I think i've been told about $350 for a new one (i think it's new), anyone else been told better prices?

Always run power fc's in all my cars and never had an issues except for a faulty knock sesor. We are going to be selling wolf ecu's through our store very soon and would also appreciate people feedback on that ecu. As far as I no its alot more tunable then the power fc but alot more complicated to set-up and for the driver to change basic settings etc.

It's probably a bit much but i'm getting my power fc for $1450 through a shop. Been told i could have got it for cheaper through nengun or wateva but oh well, it's been paid for already anyway.

Hey ryanrb25, whereabouts you getn ur power fc installed? I'd take a wild guess and say boostworx cos it seems like that's where everyone else goes but figured i'd ask anyway.

Nope there the same only series two have 3 wire not 4. Install it yourself follow paulr33 guide then take it to boostworx and get shaun to tune it, there the cheapest and by far the best

    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi     
    • Could you please express this thought again with some clarity added?
    • So, whilst the Bogan Cruise Ship is GTG, and I had organised some time today to go on the SAU NSW cruise, my best laid plans where kicked in the balls, well, kicked in my right knee to be exact Now, after a bit of arthroscopic "honing" and tibial band lengthening "modifications" , I'm sitting on a couch in a prescription induced drug haze, watching 5hit on the Youtubes and falling in and out of consciousness......good times
