<br>You said on the Z3 board that it hard to dyno an OBDII car. Why?<p> I have done it several times and am wondering if you are alluding to OBDII having a significant influence on the results. <p>Regards,<br>Preston<br>98 M3/4

<br>Probably has something to do with its "memory" of how you are driving and you would have to drive the car hard to get it to full performance. Makes sense with my experience, my first couple of dyno runs are always low and then they build up over time and then level out. I figured it was due to temps reaching optimal levels but it might be due to OBDII type things.<p>I'll search my emails and see if I can find anything by JimC that gives me a better clue.<p>Thanks,<br>Preston<br>98 M3/4<br>
