Cool "Virtual Dynos"...how close do they get, really? - 04-24-2017, 06:47 PM

I'm a realist...I'm never going to spend the money to get my car dyno'd. I really just can't see it happening.

That said...

I have seen some software on this forum, but I don't know what it is, that appears to take our .CSV files and translates them into HP & Torque figures. Is that correct, or was I dreaming? Lol

Also, I have an OBD-II wireless doo-dad that I can wifi over to an app called Dash Command that gives me all kinds of info including HP & Torque readings. I'm sure there are apps galore like mine.

Anyway, how accurate can these things be? I want some bragging rights!!

Nobody will ever accept the numbers those put out for bragging rights. DynoJet or bust.

its only good to see a graph to help with tuning.

You want numbers, go to a dyno. I remember using the virtual dyno. I could change gearing, tires, and a bunch of other calculations that would throw off the virtual dyno numbers.

i never believe them as being accurate enough

Using it for tuning and doing back to back runs to see if there is any improvement...maybe, but you can also do that with the JB4 by comparing the time stamps on logs.

Virtual dyno is a total waste of your time. It's worse than having no dyno numbers at all as they are so wildly inaccurate.
