The green backlit SBC i-d is the new v2 model. I have heard that Blitz-NA will not allow you to exhange/upgrade your v1 model.WRXnSoCal said:Mine lights up with a white light making it near impossible to read during the day. Ive seen a picture of somebodies that lights up green like the HKS. ???thanks
The v2. has only just been released, and there are plenty of v1. in vendor circulation. The screen color is reportedly the only difference. When I purchased mine I researched which vendors had which revision. If you only just purchased it, you could try negotiating with the vendor for an exchange.WRXnSoCal said:Thanks for the info. I figured since i just purchased it from one of the most used company on here it would be up to date. That sucks . Thanks again. Would you recommend staying with the blitz or use the apex
I think the Apexi requires you to splice into your ECU. It performs very well, even though it's a single solenoid controller.WRXnSoCal said:Thanks for the info.

....However, it scored second place to the SBC i-d in boost response and control in the recent SCC test.
Well, I don't have the article in front of me but I seem to recall that indeed they didn't produce a ranking at the end. However, I base my remarks on their performance observations and IIRC they stated (paraphrasing) "With a little work we were able to post the quickest boost response of the test with the SBC i-D." They also point to the graphs, and here you can clearly see that the Blitz had the best combination of control and response.206WRX_GDA said:I didn't realize that there was a first or second place ranking in that article. Am I just not seeing it? The impression I got was that the Profec-B was the clear winner, with the mbc as a close 2nd? Or maybe I'm just sleepy? heh...
You can use the optional harness no problem. Blizt NA actually asked many of us Blitz distributors what we thought about the V2. By overwhelming response us dealers preferred the display on the V1 which IS easier to read in both daytime and nightime. I have seen both and although I COULD grey market in the V2 it wouldn't come with any warranty and no english instructions. Bottom line, some dealers have decided to grey market in the product but I and other authorized Blitz dealers/distributors decided it be best to abide by the rules of Blitz USA and will not carry the V2.AD7 said:New menber, sbc id v1 is better than v2 according to blitz N. America I call them. They toll me the v2 is sold in Japan only and is a lower vertion than v1 even the screm is better on v1. So v2 is gray market and the ones who sell v2 are not blitz dealers, also if you have v2 you may notice that comes w/japanesse instructions, v2 cames w/english instructions.
Any way that is what I know, by the way I do not have a sbc id but I'm thinking of getting v1 and I have a question.
Have any one use the optional harness to conect the sbc id to the ECU to read EGT, oil/water tem. ect?.
I like to use the sbc id to monitor my car as well to control the boost, but I had call vendors and toll me that is very hard to make the sbc id to read accurate data from the ecu and they don't recoment o use the optional harness. But according to Blitz it should be reading fine, they say that who ever toll me that, they do not know what they talking about
Any comments will be apreciated.
