    yeah I bet you want one so you look cool like the eclipse in fnf. Most people put lab tops in so they can seriously tune their cars with like aem ems and whatnot. Like to adjust the fuel curve and to make sure your air to fuel ratio and what not is hitting around 13:1 and other stuff for max speed and power. Not so they can see the psi going into the manifold, whataever that helps.... And regarding 1/4 mile times, I believe you can get a gtech 2 but they are pure shit. My buddy has one and it says he runs 15.1's all day long yet he can't even break into the 15's at the track. They are off by a good 1 second easy.

    High powered antenna connected to a wireless network card on your laptop, such as a Orinoco Gold, that allows you to scan various wireless networks while you drive through business districts. Programs like Net Stumbler and the DLink software will tell you as much info about networks that you scan and if you can hop into their stuff, steal some internet access, etc. Highly nerd stuff, but I'm in a networking class so I have an excuse.
