Don't waste your time mate, get it deltadash checked next time Andy is up, it will give you a more accurate reading as it's done on the road in the right conditions, I have totally given up on rolling roads as they are far too subjective and don't replicate real world conditions, as a measuring system they are very poor and should have the word "ish" after every result.

I have a "g" meter app on my phone that I trust more than rollers at the moment Laughing

G meter app!! you lost that much faith in them?

When it was getting mapped I asked Andy if he could do a power run and he said the early Alca Tek ecu's didn't have the software on to provide a figure scratch so he gave me a guesstimate.

Andy's estimates are pretty close.

Evotune is in Duhram, Jamie is spot on!

In reality, as JMG has said, RR are a decent idea of what its reading but nothing will replicate real world driving and engine loading.

Going to look into other devices too, remember many years ago using an AP22, surly that tech has moved on over the years.

looks like the ecutek pro can read oem or modified oem ecus from 1999-2012.

can read all information, reset ecu, read fault codes and produce dyno runs.

Is it not just motoscope rollers that are the issue as the area and fans they use are wank? Car facing a wall very limited airflow for the car/cooling system

Jamie at Evotune uses uncalibrated dyno dynamics rollers though, he only uses them for tuning so no need for calibration.

To get at least a try at accurate results you need calibrated rollers.

Look at the volume of air the car sucks in at speed and there is no chance your gonna get that from a fan...
