Ipod Touch/Iphone App

Saw this nifty little app released the other day. I know it might not be nearly as good as a true in car product, however I'm wondering if anyone here has messed with it. There is a positive review over at engadget. http://gizmodo.com/5030749/iphone-ap...formance-meter

Re: Ipod Touch/Iphone App

strizzo can you compare the 0-60 on this with the time you get on the ap and let me know how close it is.

Re: Ipod Touch/Iphone App

if i get the chance, i'm not a big fan of doing timed runs on the street, for one because its not real smart, and two because first gear is all wheelspin

I just bought this app last night. Pretty cool to have on my freakin cell phone. I tried to use it this morning, and my iPhone went flying all over my car...lol. I'll compare it to the AP, when I receive it tomorrow, as far as 0-60 times, etc. Maybe, this will be the end all before/after AP dyno's!!

I'm kidding..of course..lol.

Re: Ipod Touch/Iphone App

ok ok...first run...don't laugh too hard, b/c I've never been to the track, and this is my first and only 1/4 run in this car. First run results (no launch at all): Mods: MS CAI only

60' 2.85 @ 27.5mph
330' 6.88 @59.1mph
1/8mi 10.01 @79.0mph
1000' 12.61 @93.4mph
1/4mi 14.82 @ 102.7mph

Max Acceleration: .92 G's
Peak Horsepower: 269HP

Getting my AP tomorrow, so I'll post a comparison. Pretty cool little app though. I'd recommend it to anyone with an iPhone.

Re: Ipod Touch/Iphone App

sounds like it's reason in it's numbers. The important thing is consistency so you can get a quick measure of improvement.

Re: Ipod Touch/Iphone App

As far as the HP number goes, I put in 15% drivetrain loss. I missed where it said if you leave it al 0%, it will calculate whp. And for weight , I put 3150lbs. Spare and tools are gone. I'll change my settings, and see what happens tomorrow before/after the AP. Interested in trap speed mainly.

Re: Ipod Touch/Iphone App

You can probably calibrate it using the ap. Just change the weight until you get accurate numbers.
