In Reply to: Has anyone tried the G-Tech Pro meter? posted by TechMan on August 26, 2000 at 19:38:17:

I've tried it several times on a couple different cars. I've only used it to measure 0-60 times.

On my 88 M3...
stock=6.8 to 7.0
modified(JC chip, K&N, new tires)=6.4-6.5
I could've done better both times

On my mom's 97 Nissan Maxima(auto)=7.2-7.4

On my friends 89 Supra=7.2-7.4

On my friends 99 Civic SI(with an intake)=7.0-7.4

On my friends 99 M3(JC software and intake and SS exhaust and with four people in the car)=5.6-5.8

On my friends 00 S4(with four people in the car)=5.8-5.9

All these times seem accurate and "felt" right. I think the G-Tech may not be perfectly accurate, but it is extremely precise. By this I mean in comparing times using the same G-tech meter it works well. As in it will work well to see if the mod you preformed actually worked. Although it is precise its times may be slightly off. To me it is more important to be precise than accurate. So i think its great and lots of fun:)

I've also used it on an 89 Acura integra(auto) that blazed a 0-60 time of 10.5 seconds

It is susposed to acurately measure HP as well as 1/4 mile times and 0-60 times. Has any one used it and how were the results.
