Have you recorded your journeys with a log file yet? Dead cool when you lay them back over the map - you can see all your data as you went along!

(Like max boost coming off roundabouts.. lol)

maddog, might take you up on that offer if it still stands...

as for the combo, I have been using the bluetooth OBDII and Torque Pro for a while now, I have used it on my Cee'd, CMAX and a few mates cars as well! its just so handy to grab a load of info... I rained on my mates parade though, boasting his pug 307 HDI could reach 120 BHP... Never got above 80 even with every effort :P

The BHP is worked out from the power to weight ratio in torque, if its not set up with the correct profile weight in torque (with different ones for each car) it can give a false reading,

Also, i think its taken off the weight AND the 0-60mph, (it cannot measure the actual output - it calculates it) if you get a rubbish 0-60mph (poor technique or problems with traction etc) you might get a low BHP figure

I got 188.8Hp after a few tries on mine, which was close to the expected 180Hp
