Good luck with that.

Can't turn your falcon into an R35 GTR that easily..

You can do it pretty simply with a data logger & some software. I have done it both with Innovate hardware or TechEdge. This is a screenshot of a rough TechEdge Winlog dashboard I put together. I've since cleaned it up a fair bit.

I have a 2nd hand Innovate kit on ebay (see the Classifieds forum) and I sell brand new discounted TechEdge gear on www.tiperformance.com.au!

Cheers,
Jason
