Default G-tech pro

I have tested it,
have an 03, Auto, S0, Says 16.38 @ 89.1 twice. This is with the computer not having been unplugged, so its used to city driving.

I also had the summer tires on there.

I have verified with 3 other cars(my friends) that the G-tech appears to be a full 1 second slower than C&D, etc. So, I would say that I am driving almost ok. Could it be that I am a better driver than him (not likely, he is a huge car nut), or that my GT has been upgraded? It feels faster than the 03 GT Manual. I will be G-teching that later.

If the car does have a stage 1, what serial numbers or whatever should I look for? I know to look for the injectors, but I can't really see those.

You should be running mid to high 14's if it had stage 1. Stock GT's run mid 15's.

Also, the auto vs. manual will run about the same ET in the Qtr. mile but the manual will usually MPH higher.

Did you make sure you set up your G-tech the same as your buds? I think you need to set up weight and other data. If you have to what were your set ups. I have an old/new one and want to know if I used the right numbers.

I just have a G-tech pro. I highly doubt is was set up the same. I was driving on sandy roads (it snowed last week here). I should also correct the above, I meant to say winter tires. They are an all season variation, but they are nice and soft, so maybe they are like a slick? I don't know.

I have the 1994 version!

I still haven't g-teched the manual! I am too lazy.

The G-Tech is almost always dead one with maybe just a slight difference with actual dyno numbers, but the weight has to be dead on as well! You would need to actually weight the car before using it, to get the true weight, with you in it and anything else, to get the best results.

I just did 7 back to back runs. It wasn't as fully loaded as last time (I had the 17's in the trunk last time! D-uh).

It was a nice day, 24'C (around 70-75F)
1 7.45 91.1 15.94
2 7.50 87.6 16.16 ease off
3 7.52 90.0 15.99
4 7.43 91.4 15.84
5 7.80 88.3 16.07
6 7.97 89.5 16.24 Corner
7 7.49 90.3 15.89
Median 7.50 90.00 15.99

I don't think there is anything done to the car(it says flowmaster on the throttle body), except Khomo MX's (super ultra summer tire), 245-45-17's.

G-tech appears pretty close to perfect. I have 98,000km on car (about 58,000miles).

It is the old Gtech that only blinks numbers like a radar detector.

I will test the manual when I get the winter tires off. I swear, I'll do it this weekend.
