San Marcos, CA - April 23, 2005 If you want to know the horsepower and torque of your engine, or the 0 to 60 time of your car, or even the 1/8 mile or 1/4 mile time and speed, just use the Nology LaptopDyno. Use it to check and clear the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC), or to turn off the "Check Engine" light. Yes, the one that came on right after you did all those cool engine mod's. Perfect for when you have to get the car smogged. Use it to monitor and record sensor values. Lets say you want to upgrade your engine and you would like to know if that new trick air cleaner really gives you more power. Do a baseline run and record the airflow data. Now install the new air cleaner and make another run (damn this is hard work). Now compare the air flow data. More air flow, more horsepower. Get it?
