    Question how can I measure boost, air mass and air-fue ratio

    guys is there a program i can buy for my laptop that will allow me to measure the boost pressure, air mass and the air to fuel ratio.. I know i can get them if i take the car to a rolling road but i want to be able to read/record the data live on a laptop.. I am not wanting to add gauges just for this, i have boost gauge although not fitted.

    any ideas?

    Also you can buy a bluetooth ELM427 interface and get app's which will read all that sort of data (And G forces)

    I'm sure you can access a hidden menu on full can cars BC's that tells you all that info live. No need for opcom or Tech 2.

    Click on engine once you put your car details in.
    Then measuring blocks i think it is.
    I tried to do a regen in programming,but it wouldn't do it,but that could be because my laptop is old and only has usb 1.0 on it,so it can't read the info needed to do it quick enough

    Try search in op-com under:
    -engine
    -output test
    You will find boost pressure here. Maybe air mass and air-fue also.
    On boost pressure you can look at "boost pressure comand" and "boost pressure". Thise are show as kpa (100 kpa = 1 bar = 14,5 psi) You might adjust for barometric pressure. So if it shows 240 kpa, boost pressure are 240 kpa -100 kpa (barometric pressure) = 140 kpa/1,4 bar.
