Genuine question and not having a go, but how does it know what the maximum available torque is, and how does it know what torque you are using when modern cars have such different torque curves ?

Example - Honda Civic Type R (headline 192hp hatchback) has max torque at 5600 rpm (only 142 lb/ft - ), mine has it at 1900 (229 lb/ft ) or around 290+ lb/ft chipped .

I'm intrigued by the LOD measure. I'm tempted to use it but it remains a mystery. I know there is wisdom there, somewhere.
