    Question Hp limit

    Hey

    I was wondering if anyone know about a program and a way to limit the hp in your car via a car computer?

    I will use it to protect my children, when they borrow my car.

    My idea was to enter a password on my carcomputer to gain full hp, else only half or a quater.

    or to make serval users and have the user/password associated with a number of hp

    The admin (I) will have all 264hp
    my son will only have 100 hp
    and my daughter only 70 hp
    last my wife will have 150 hp

    would that be cool or what?

    i hope u can help me.

    greetings from denmark :P

    very interesting ida but unfortunatly unless your runing linux of some real stable os in there i wouldnt even venture to have my car computer control anything OEM related maybe a window or door lock but certainly not fuel or acceleration. just imagine a blue screen of death with the computer giving the last command of limit horsepower while your about to floor it to make it across an intersection in time. ouch. eventually maybe possible as far as implementation id guess you could just limit the amount of gas availible to each user.
    your better bet install a webcam and log all the trips including a video overlay of the actual speed (kind of a little black box)
    then yellat you son when u see hes going faster than hes supposed to.

    hahahahah what a way to be hated by your kids forever, and then having to pay for therapy!

    In all seriousness though, I'm not sure this kind of thing is a good idea in terms of engine, I mean you'd have to be writing to your chip every time, and that might not be nice on your injection systems, I'm not sure it would make a difference, but anyways...

    you might want to try looking at VEMS, a computer-controlled/run engine ECU... I think it is www.vemsgroup.com

    You could try the fully programmable open source free mega squirt as well.. That is what I am using to controll the fuel injection on my 500 HP stroker motor..

    Use an AEM EMS. Then make ask for a new feature for that program that does the passwords, so it could launch different scripts based on your code.

    Problem: when your son figures out how it is controlled, and after you were just in the car, he'll just unplug the serial cable from the EMS and he'll have all your power.

    Suggested power:
    The admin (I) will have all 264hp
    my son will only have 300 hp
    and my daughter only 100 hp
    last my wife will have 50 hp

    Me (Admin) = Full bHP
    Son
    Daughter/Wife = Car won't even start

    That's a good idea. That would be great if you let your kid drive with your car, the inshurance have nothing to complain about, because your "dangerous" kids have a limited car and you would need pay less. Now get that idea official.
    You could talk to a car tuner (chip), they should know more about that.

    Too obvious. Have random lights turn on and off, doors lock, and check engine light turn on
