Just an FYI for 03 and newer Neons

Post by asanti » Wed Jul 09, 2008 7:04 pm

I just received an email from Howell Automotive, and they are possibly bringing out an aftermarket AF/X PCM for you guys! It's not confirmed, and absolutely NO specs were included in th email but you guys may want to contact Howell and confirm or deny the details. Just thought you guys should know :D :thumbup:

lol!

Also, how many thousands of dollars are they going to want to make up for the cost of R&D?

I'll believe it when I see it. But oh man if I see it...

I just checked Howell forum and they have nothing mentioned or listed. I wouldn't hold my breath for a second. I don't think he can even do it if he wanted too.

That's why I highlighted the word "possibly" in the 1st post :rofl: ... if anything I say call Howell directly and ask Todd or Gary. Tell them you heard a 'vicious rumor' about them coming up with an AF/X NGC replacement. IF they come through with it at least it might pave the way for you 03-05 owners.

Good Luck!!

Post by hound9164 » Thu Jul 10, 2008 1:00 pm

I got an email from Howell automotive(whom i will never use again), from when i signed up for their mailing list. They claim to now have an AFX pc for the ngc 03+ neons.

pipe dream? anybody else get the email. I will believe it when i see it offered from modern performance.....

If nobody else got the email, lemme know, and i will post it on the thread.

Hmm, tell them you want to be a "tester" and get a free unit! Sacrifice yourself for the good of the Neon Nation man! \:D/ :salute:

Thats a thread bitching about NGC Computers.. it wasn't created to say the Howell created an 03 -05 NGC Replacement Also was created on Jun 4th 2008 which since Howell announced the new NGC Replacement crap today.. means that thread wasn't involved. :quotes:

Makes 2 threads on the new Howell ECU ;)

He can flash it all he wants, and maybe it will handle bolt ons better with a higher rev limiter and more timing, but regardless, it's still going to be picky about huge cams or boost. They can't change that with a flash.

my thoughts exactly. My bet, knowing howell auto lol, is that they will give you some JET product in fancy packaging for $800 and claim it as the cure for the NGC.....

as has been said, i will believe it when the dyno numbers from 2GN MEMBERS proves it......

Correct, but earlier you stated
this is now the third thread about it...
There is only 2 Threads about the new NGC Computer and 1 thread about something else where it is also mentioned.

which makes 2 threads "About it"

I bit the bullet and tried the Jet Stage 2 chip and hit the dyno. Somebody else's turn to step up... :thumbup:

This would be nice, but I doubt I will get one as I have decided to go with the ASP turbo kit so I need to be spending the few $$$ I do have on stuff that will work with the kit.

Will definatley be following this though.
