looks like the spike is 20lbs. I haven't got much time to fool around with it yet but it seems like it is VERY responsive. The possibilities of viewing sensors is endless!!! I need to figure out the logging better and how to export the logs for the sensors instead of just the trip (if possible)

I will run a graphing log today and see what the boost settles down at. I tried to share a screenshot last night but it didnt' work for some reason.

My goal here is to just bring more information to light about the car so people aren't mis-informed and may get an idea of what could be changed to increase power and economy. More

Data from this morning..

Engine RPM @ idle= ~630-650
Engine AFR @ idle= really close to stoich ~14.5-14.8
Engine Vacuum @ idle (no A/C)= 16-18in/hg
Boost @ WOT in gears 1,2,3 (spike)= 19.7-20.2lbs
AFR @ WOT, full boost= a very rich ~10.2:1 was the richest that was logged




O, and check this out!! worked perfectly.

Here was the stock fusebox cover:



See how it has that little 'inset' molded plastic. It was in the way of enabling the cover to go back on with the ELM 327 OBDII installed... 5 minutes later...



From the front, you can't even tell anything was cut or modded!! No one would know unless they removed it that anything was cut.



voila!

30$ later, 5 minutes of mod time and I now have a good data logging system setup and no one would know.

The Torque app is pretty slick.

You can monitor your 'trips' and it logs where you have been and what speed you were at, at any given time in the trip.

You can run a OBDII scan to see any fault codes.

You can check the entire system and it will give you the value of EVERY scan-able sensor and their high-low limits. When warming up, a couple of them were out of range (obviously)

You can setup custom screens with any sensors that you want from HP (need weight input among other things) torque, 0-60 time, 60-0 braking time, lateral accel, throttle position, engine load, fuel trim, AFR, boost pressure, etc.

I honestly can't believe I went so long without this setup in a vehicle.

Nice little mod! I purchased a cheap eBay bluetooth OBD scanner for my Outback just for having something to check engine codes, etc. Torque is an awesome app, seeing all the possibilities really makes me want to integrate an Android tablet into any newer car from now on!

Ive got the same ELM adapter and user TORQUE on my HP touchpad.. Cant wait to get my VT to pull data. Your cut looks pretty rough, what did you use to shave that handle off.. Ive got a dremel tool I would use for this.

Sorry to bump an old thread. Does the synced device need to have a data plan on it? I'm asking because I have an IPhone which can't use the Bluetooth but my friend has an old android he will give me if it doesn't need to be activated
