I am neither discrediting Jim Conforti nor his products, because they are very good. I am suggesting that there is a possible performance benefit to be made in reference to his current OBDII setup.
As Jim suggested, he has dynoed more cars than everyone except for Dinan. He feels he is the foremost expert in the field of car programming b/c of his extensive dyno experience. It would seem that he is perfect and infallible b/c of his dyno experience....
As per his own prioritizing logic, it would seem that Dinan must be the foremost authority in the field. If Conforti claims we should bow before him because of his extensive dyno experience , then we should certainly follow the leader, and not the 2nd place finisher. Or at least Jim's own logic would tell us to do so.
Do you know why Jim Conforti has been successful? it's because he saw a product that he could make better. NOt only did he recognize the fact, but he acted upon the idea.
Now, Jim conforti is criticising other "innovators" who had effectively done the same type of thinking and testing that he would have done himself.
There are other fish in the sea, and not everyone has to recognize your ideas as supreme. Just as people have travelled faster than sound and discovered that the world was not in fact flat, we should realize that when you settle for the status quo, you will never surpass it.
what would you say if I could produce dyno results of this new OBDII "breakthrough" Are you that confident in your jargon filled essays and manuals that you can deny something of this level in a sophisticated and logical manner?
