Apexi Power Fc Hand Controller....


Recommended Posts

Hi

hoping you guys can help me out...

I was stupid enough to buy a power FC without a hand commander as i thought i could easily buy a new EL type from an Apexi dealer...

http://www.nengun.com/apexi/power-fc-el-hand-controller

but nobody will give me a straight answer as to whether it will work with my Power FC...

its a ECR33 type... PFC ECR33 010-0914 rocking firmware version 5.10..

got it installed and working with FC datalogit..

the websites all say they are universal and work with all power FC's....

however im pretty sure they wont give me a refund if it doesnt !!

would anyone have a working EL hand commander in the Newcastle Area ?

Cheers

Matt

duncan has the new EL hand controller

and it will work on every powerfc expect toyota chaser JZX100 auto

as it has special firmware for all the auto menu's and logic

FCC4 was a complete re-write from apexi to work on the EL display and support all powerfcs including ap eng, pro, and mainstream versions

the only exception as above is the chaser auto version

Are there any other improvements with the new controller other than the EL screen??

covered in the powerfc faq

differences

- EL screen

- FCC 4 is std version

- supports all powerfc units (except chaser auto)

- FUNCTION SELECT screen is in english (FCC/FCC2/FCC3 have jap characters for on/off)

- EL unit has light sensor like RSM, AVCR, SAFC units

there is also magic art covers avaiable on the nengun site to give your hand controller a coloured cover instead of the plain black

the biggest difference for most users is the better screen and no more "freeze at apexi logo" annoyances (unless you have a chaser auto)

That's good to know thanks Paul.

I've got the normal old style hand controller and the damn brightness of it sucks. It only goes proper normal brightness when i apply pressure on the front of the hand controller housing blargh.

Hmmm that sounds pretty good... I might see if I can sell mine for something and get one!

    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
