Thanks. For sales purposes, methinks DashDyno should put this feature front and center. Maybe I'll send them an e-mail suggesting that.

Sweet! What are you going to test it on?

Please say a TDI Please say a TDI.

My thought on the Kiwi is that it is a Scan Gauge for the masses. I wouldn't say it is superior to the SG, but maybe a little more user friendly. It is to the average driver what the instant TV dinner is to the average kitchen goer. Sure, real chefs go and choose their own ingredients, research their recipes and cook it all to perfection. But the average bachelor might not want to put that much effort into a meal. The Kiwi is simple, flashy and seems pretty easy to just toss in the microwave, stir and eat... Not that you'd really eat one of these... but you know what I mean. I've got a Scan Gauge, which is perfect for me (and most other ecomodders, I would assume) because I like researching my own hypermiling techniques, applying, testing and all the other stuff that would be too much work for the average driver. The Kiwi would be perfect for most people I know that aren't going to convert into a full-blown fuel efficiency nerd like I have.

Disclaimer: I speak metaphorically only. I do not recommend microwaving and/or eating the Kiwi or any other electronic device.

Dre, can you think of any reason why an MPGuino wouldn't work on a TDI? It's basically glorified electronic ignition, no? Any good links to TDI technical drawings?

I've been wanting to ask this question for some time now.

Never thought of it as a glorified ignition, but that is a fairly accurate statement.

The ONLY thing I'm concerned about is pilot injection throwing the calculation off.
I need to head over to that forum; is there a "starter thread" on the guino yet?

I meant injection, not "ignition", sorry. I started a tdi thread to try and sort it out:

It also will log torque, horsepower, and rpm. The torque and horsepower are based on an algorithm but they claim good accuracy and present data to support the claim. With all of that data and some time and effort, one could create an approximate engine map for one's own vehicle.

...two questions: (1) did you ever receive that PLX to test, and, if so, (2) what were the results?
