Has anybody on here had experiance with one or both of these? if so, how have you liked the functions of them? i need a good ebc to use with my gt28rs upgrade, and i like the extreme adjustability and form factor of the AVCR. But to some extent, i like the simplicity and price of the profec b. if you have any comments on either of these please let me know. TIA.

the apexi unit has a hell of a lot of features and advantages to it.

the question is, will you be able to use all, most, or even some of those in your passat?

the next question is, will you be tinkering with all of those parameters so often that it'll warrant the cost and time it takes to get everything to work right with the apexi unit?

and lastly, don't forget that an item such as that is designed for simpler ECU systems... not quite the easy thing to wire into the uber-redundant Bosch systems that control the likes of german cars.

The profec does its job wonderfully.... and is also programmable (lo/hi boost). which is really all you need in terms of controlling boost. and you can add a remote to it so you can program low boost for lower gears (1st and 2nd; to limit traction issues due to excessive boost), and hi boost for higher gears (that way you get max boost once the car is rolling at speed and traction is not an issue).

i have a profec B, and i have no complaints. i'll be picking up the remote for it soon enough for the purposes explained above.

it really comes down to what it is you want to be doing with the hardware you're going to purchase.

since nobody seems to be running the AVCR here, i think i'll try that one out if the funds are available. i like the size and design of the unit better and who knows, i may need all of its features someday... just that concept is worth the extra $$ for me. plus, if i dont like it i'll sell it. yay ebay. thanks for the responses.

Just keep it well hidden. APEX'i gear is stolen pretty frequently. The Greddy is a little easier to hide since the face of it is only 1 cm high and a couple inches wide.
