I have been using a Vericom for about 8 years. It's kinda like a large g-tech except that it is much more flexible/programmable.

IMO the more important numbers are not the actual RWHP but the CHANGES you find. So if you measure X and then put on a Jim C intake and find X + 15 and another product shows X + 8 then you know which is better.

The Vericom is good enough to spot things like best plug gap, oil viscosity etc etc. The Gtech probably can do the same, but I am not positive. One nice thing about a unit like a vericom is that you can do tests in one gear from one spped to another. No skill, super repeatable to a tiny fraction of a second. O-60 for example is highly launch realted and shift points and shift time matter. Too many variables methinks, depending upon what you are trying to do..
