    In-Car Dyno

    Are there any dynomometers that are kept attached to your car whilst you drive and have a USB/Bluetooth/Wi-Fi interface? This would be very useful to me

    Also note that I drive a '94 3000GT - that means I have a retarded hybrid OBD plug

    I dont know of any products like this though it wouldnt be too tough to build the software to make one from something like http://www.phidgets.com/index.php?mo...7.117.2&IID=63

    Hard work often pays off over time, laziness always pays off right now.

    I know some of the 1st gen DSM (89-94 Eagle Talon, mitsubishi eclipse, Plymoth laser) Data loggers can work with your car..
    And I was told once that there are some software for them with "dyno estimates"

    Also you can look into those Gtech things, which plug into your cig. lighter, they are usually very off though...

    Please note that all of these items are estimates at best. None of them can compare to an actual dyno for numbers and for tuning.

    I don't believe this product has a dynomometer but it is OBD Hybrid ready. I have a 95 Stealth Twin Turbo and this is what I am going to get once I complete my carputer install.

    Do you want an accelerometer based dyno or an OBD based one? Since you have a 94 maybe better to get a G-tech or one like that. I've used both - the OBD one was more accurate but like Red said, no where near as accurate a real dyno.

    if I were to get an OBD one, I wouldn't be able to use the Halo, eh?
