I want to see the OP's dyno results first! :D

Seriously though, for Android users there is an app called "Dynomaster" that is pretty useful.

Also, VCDS can be used to log data from which you can find 0-60, torque, etc.

I have not see the Dynomaster one for Android, but I have the one called Torque app for Android which I highly recommend, but limited sensor access on VW/Audi as it only uses OBDII protocol. It maybe my cheap ELM clone wireless adaptor.

Will you accept similar accelerometer guessed peak power numbers from G-Tech devices on this thread?
Similar concept to the phone based programs: input the guessed weight, level the device, accelerate. Then it's just math: F=M*A.

And how did you determine the drive line losses? Not that it matters as wheel HP is all that counts. If you want a bigger HP number for boasting purposes use 20% loss and calculate fudged power at the top of the pistons rather than half-fudged at the flywheel.:rolleyes:

Any accelerometer-based dyno app is not worth the results it gives without inputting things like accurate weight from certified scales with the EXACT payload at the time of testing, tire size, gear/final drive ratios and coast-down tests, the latter preferably on as near perfectly level stretch of road as possible and averaging runs at least once each in both opposing directions to factor out tail/headwinds and grade differences.

Putting a guesstimate weight can throw off the HP results significantly. Drivetrain loss factors are dubious as well.

Yup! But if they are accurate in identical repeated tests, they could provide a way to measure changes in performance.

Even professional dynos are "inaccurate" compared to other professional dynos...
