    just saw an add for the "new and improved" g-tech and just wondered if anyone has taken any g-tech to a dyno and tested it. do they really work? i dont see how they could. all it plugs into is the cigarette lighter.

    Actually, they don't. Anything Brian doesn't personally own or plan to own suxs in his opinion. <_<

    I sell them all day long and while I don't personally own one ( :D ) I hear that they work quite well. The comon report is that they tend to be off by about 2 tenths in the 1/4 mile and within 20 horspower of actual. Whatever, they are a cool toy. That is all they are though, it's not a tuning device, it's just for people to get an idea of thier cars capabilites. If you run consistant 16.00s on the G-tech and you put on a header and your time drops to 15.8 consistently, then who cares if the time is exact or not? You know it made you ABOUT 2 tenths faster. Just my .02 cents.

    whatever. I just sell 'em, I don't make them. I could give a fuck if you don't buy one or you buy 12 and hit them with bats. I was just trying to give some information.

    They must be really expensive to be worthless. Something that even estimates your 1/4 mile time and horsepower can't be worthless unless its way more expensive than a dyno run.

    20 times over. Like I said, the Gtech is a toy. Nothing more. It's a cool toy, but a toy nonetheless.

    I wanna buy a dynojet. That'd be so fuckin' pimp to have a dyno in my backyard.

    Your dumb if you buy a g-tech. Whoever invented them should be shot. Too much usless crap in this world.
