For those who were at the grand opening till late, might have noticed that I received my batch of G-Techs. The day after Jason and I decided to put them to the test and do some runs. We took three cars out for a boot. Mine (89 Z24), Our 2.4L Car, (1997 Z24) and my Mazda 323 (1988 1.6L).

Once again the accuracy of the unit is unforseen. We ran all sorts of tests on the stretch of industrial road. We abandoned further tests are 15 - 20 minutes of scortching pavement fearing our licenses getting revoked by the local authorities.

On to the Results!

MY CAR (89 Z24):

Time for some dissapointment on my part. My car's Peek HP was not what I expected. Torque was good and I still couldn't dive into the 14s. :evil:

the older ones bite ass, the new one (Competition) is a true tuner tool and perfectly accurate. The PC software is top notch too, I can analyze a car with modifications and the times are consistent too. Down the the 1/100th of a second. I just started to rent them, ones already out for play.

Yeah I g-teched my car with the new one as well, a great tool. I believe it was a [email protected] 70 or low 80 something MPH. I know the HP has to be calculated differently, so I wasnt too sure how to do that. Im waiting to go to the track to see what I can do.

I have been happy with my G-Tech. If used correctly, it seems to be right on. My friend used it in his Mustang over the weekend. He has taken his car to the track and has about 10 timeslips for his car. The G-tech was within 2 tenths and 3 mph for all of his 1/4 mile runs from the average of his actual track times. His car is an automatic so the times will be fairly consistent anyways.

I have one of those pro comp G-Techs. There is a different way for measuring hp and torque. It says to start off normal but shift into second or third way early and just floor it all the way to redline. This will measure hp across a longer range and give more accurate results. The HP results from a 1/4 mile seem to always be different for me.
