I didn't say I don't use on board diagnostics. My laptop has a program on it that allows me to monitor A/F ratio, EGT, IAT etc.... I use this as my basis for most of my tuning. But I still also use the old school route of pulling the plugs and reading them. Another thing you gotta remember is most of the motors i work on are carburated. So there for I don't have all the sensors and other electronics to get information off of. I just know that on a dyno I cant recreate real world conditions like I can on the water.

Who really cares which motor is fastest bolt it in and go race, I bet most people in this forum would be just as quick with an axe sport engine (or any other sport engine) then your top or the range maximo modified [insert quick engine here] engine
