The Tunerstein can only log 3 items, which would be bad if you are a control freak and need to know everything that happens under your hood. are you going to be using this for tuning or for a data displayer in the ****pit while you are driving?
I've spent some time researching the "consumer priced" accelerometers available on the market. I've found roughly 6 that are readily available: Gtech Pro, Gtech Pro Competition, Mr. Dyno, Apexi Rev/Speed meter (w/ optional g-sensor), and a couple of products by Escort and Beltronics. I concentrated on the Gtech Pro Competition and the Apexi unit. These two units have the ability to graph and replay data by a number of variables. The rest of the units can show instantaneous results, give a number of measurement methods, and display in numeric form only (on the unit itself). I also concentrated on those two because I wanted a way to measure lateral g's as well. I plan to use the unit for timed acceleration runs and logging lateral g's during my auto-x runs. The Apexi unit is the most comprehensive in its current form, but it doesn't have the ability to export information to a laptop/pc/pda. The Gtech has a good piece of software for evaluation on a pc, but as of right now it cannot export lateral g information.
Beltronics units can only make acceleration runs from a standing start. Lateral G's can be read instantaneously. Beltronics FX1 and FX2
The Escort units seem to be the same units as the Beltronics units. I wonder what that means about the radar detectors... Escort Passport GT1 and GT2
I didn't pay a lot of attention to Mr. Dyno because I found it late in my search. The external appearance also makes it look dated, but it shows much potential and deserves further research. MR Dyno
The Apexi Rev/Speed Meter graphs/logs all of the basic needs. However, it doesn't export any info. It also needs a separate unit to measure G's (power and lateral G readouts). Apexi Rev/Speed Meter
The Gtech Pro is being phased out, but the Pro Competition is a pretty all-encompasing unit with a good price. It also has the best support of any of the units I have found so far. Take some time browsing the pages and the user forum, if you're interested. Both Gtech models
the higher-dollar obd2 port dataloggers can get pretty feature-packed. the only ones i've seen that'll datalog important information tend to run pretty expensive, though.
and really, what's there to datalog with an obd2 cpu? you can't get hondata for it, so you can't "tune" anything. unless you're piddling around with fuel pressures or something, i've never seen the point.
other option: techedge wb v2 has datalogging capability, along with the benefit of having a wideband. it's a pretty cheap comparable alternative.
I took a sample from my transmission fluid and it seems like the previous owner was using engine oil for the tranny. Now I’m having some shifting issues so I want to start by changing the fluid but I wanted to switch to OE MTF. Do I have to flush the entire system or can I just do a fluid change...
So my question is with a n/a gsr will you see any gains from a intake manifold without the butterfly valves? What about with turbo? I'm thinking about getting the skunk2 ultra series. I plan on doing coil on plug in the next few months and slowly working my way towards turbo. I have a RS with...
I currently have a full GSR transmission with a Quaife LSD. Well unfortunately at the track i started hearing clicking coming from the trans so I pulled it and a chunk of the case chipped a tooth on my final drive. Now while I have it apart I'd like to optimize my gearing for my needs. Here's my...
Does any body know how to squeeze a little more horsepower out of a b18a1 without going too much past stock? Just looking for any tips, tricks or upgrades that aren’t too noticeable when you pop the hood or get looking real close.
I urge everyone who reads this to please read my very first post in the suspension/brakes section labeled "'98 Spec JDM ITR Brakes Locking Up" about my braking issue along with my about me in my profile to better understand the back story of this car. I'm going on 6 years of...
