    My understandings of the AFC is that it allows you to manipulate the signal coming from your airflow meter to allow you to richen or lean out your tune. I guess if you have an afm car and don't want to fork out on a programmable ecu it can be a good thing. A friend with an NA RB25 had his cylinder head shaved to bump up comp and used an AFC which worked fairly well.

    on my fields afc unit it has a lean/rich light running the whole time, instead of a gauge

    i think that they are good if you understand that they are no substitute for a fully aftermarket ecu
