Alright, note, please dont bash me if this is in the wrong place, I still am sorta new to the forums and wasn't sure were to post this nor do I know if anyone even knows the answer..so... does anyone know the mathematic formula's that will give you information such as 0-60 times and such. I mean..yea..it's easiest to just clock it. but I'm trying to write a computer program to calculate a whole bunch of stuff for my civic. what I want it to do is the following, display the stock car specs for 0-60, 0-100, stock hp, stock tq and then have it display a menu of performance parts I could add onto it and then give me the upgraded hp and tq. I know there are so many variables to take into account but I'm basing this program off of a 1996 Honda Civic EX with a D16Y8. I know I'll need to take into account the car weight and how much weight is added by each part, also an approximation of what horsepower really equals based on some set standards. I know even 90% accuracy will be hard to acheive in this program, however, when I'm done It can then be modified for any engine and perhaps used as a tool for beginner tuners who want to see what they can get. If anyone knows the formula's for anything even remotely relevant to this, please speak up. note, I know the D/T/R forumula, Distance, Rate and Time. and please..dont gimmie a load of flaming rants over this and tell me how impossible it is and stupid.

theres a 0-60 calculater on the web somewere you have to put in your weight of the car and all that good stuff but i dont remeber were its at

web calculators exist sure..but that does me no good when it comes to putting the math equation into a computer program. I need the actual equation to do me much good. thanks for that though every bit of information is appreciated.

pointless? Given variability in Volumetric Efficiency between even variants of the same motor, mechanical losses, etc... only a dynojet/rollers can give you a real figure. In my online searches, I have seen on some of the online calculators, they do state the formulas.

as I said, it wouldn't be 100% accurate but be as close as I can get it. and thanks, I'll see what I can find. edit: look what I found " weight of car in kilogrammes 0-60 time = --------------------------- maximum bhp of car * 0.9"
