    Can you use OBD-II to dyno your car?

    Can it show hp/torque curves and all that good stuff?

    Yes this is what digimoto looks like:


    It needs a ton of ifno about your car frist, I never bohtered triyng it as I doubt it will be that accurate. Str8 out the box though you can do 0-60 though and that kind of stuff.

    Well, as expected, these dyno charts are "estimated" so it probably wouldn't even detect changes like things from bolt-on exhaust or whatever. The kit (software and Elmscan hardware) costs $119... not too bad.

    Don't know, probably best to look at the website www.digimoto.com - however the OBDII software Frodo is writing will work on the BR-3 first, I think, and there will be a SDK so you might be able to make the same kind of software for getting the dyno stuff etc pretty easily if you know the calculations.

    this look really cool, only thing is the elm scan only supports one of the 'protocols' like ISO i rather have the OBdiagnostics.com one that supports them all (if i ever get a car without ISO)

    i will send them an email and let you guys know. and does anybody here know how to get a obd.com tool in europe :P?

    Scantool comes in three versions though... I figure if I buy another car 80 on top of the 15000 isn't tooo harsh... Plus newer cars will support CAN instead, whihch that OBdiagnositcs one doesn't support.. Does it?
