Tonight I got around to installing my software on the lap top and hooked up the serial obd2 interface. I bought this software on ebay for $99 and as well as a code reader scanner it has quater mile, dyno, and data logging as well as real time component scan. I have the new release v3.7 with pda interface.
I made several runs and logged
Manifold Absolute Pressure
B1S1 02 Sensor
Ignition Timing Advance
Throttle Position Angle
Engine Coolant Temperature
Intake Air Temperature
