The Insoric method I think is no different except their uProc based sensor on the wheel is very very accurate to get the revs upto 1KHz sampling and then to calculate the speed. The more accurate the speed through higher sampling the better the power prediction according to the polytechnic prof that developed Insoric in Switzerland. Here is his pitch (unfortunately in german). As usual they want a suitcase full of money for the sensor.

Hrmm I'll need to go over this later - for ages I've been meaning to turn the this into something with my Arduino.

The lack and price of an AWD dyno's in my area makes measuring changes purely opinion based.

Thanks for the links and if you'd like my bits explaining I'll need to refresh exactly how we came to that as an engineer friend helped me with the spreadsheet. At the time I made that I was tinkering on the most shoe string of budgets and tbh even now I have things I'd rather spend money on then full VAGCOM.
