Logged a car with known dynapack numbers of 236/265 on my special stretch of road and the HP was spot on, TQ was 10 down. Tire was 25", 250lbs of total weight added between me, laptop and junk in the trunk.
The only "issue" is that this road, which is a one way on ramp to the interstate, is a *slight* incline, perhaps a 20ft climb over the course of 1/2 mile. Yes, its a long on ramp. I can do WOT and run out 1-2-3 before actually merging onto the interstate.

I cant my boost to show in the AFR chart, but I have not researched that problem yet.

No, I think the road is "good enough" since it was spot on for HP and TQ was only 10 down.

The problem is the boost wont show in the lower chart with the AFR but it comes up in "graph other data"

What name should the boost column be in? I can just change that, its not a big deal.

Sent you 3 logs. I was looking thru my archived logs and looking at what a few cars might be making (and my guesses were close to correct!) and I had a few display boost while others did not. I think its a naming issue.

Can anyone confirm that the BOOST column is a stock column name and not a modified column name? (In RomRaider logs of course)

It is most defiantly ***NOT*** as that column in the log I sent you I had forgotten that I renamed it in an effort to see if VD would make it show up in the lower chart along with AFR.

MY FAULT!

(I also emailed you that fact in response to the email you responded to after i sent you said logs)

Yep, that was the problem I ran into. The two logs that had manifold relative pressure (direct) (sea level) corrected *4 byte or something like that was not translating into that second chart.
but it would show under "graph other data" or whatever it was called.

The "boost" column I renamed in a log file just to see what was up.

Brad, same logs used in 1.1.7 and again in 1.1.8 gave different numbers. I'm gonna double check that before I send you the logs, but have you heard this complaint yet?

I believe Brad made the smoothing algorithm better and this can slightly affect numbers. But now the numbers are more accurate now.

The smoothing algorithm has been modified as it was exponentially (compound) smoothing before. It would smooth more as the log progressed as it was using the value already smoothed for the average for the next point. This meant that the first value was compound smoothed before leading to exponential smoothing. This was completely wrong. This is the source of the power differences in 1.1.7 and 1.1.8 Just because your numbers dont match a previous version doesnt mean its wrong. Virtual Dyno has bugs in it as does all software (thats an hour long debate there) ... and I removed one and this caused the smoothing to change a bit.

Does that help?

it makes sense, but the older numbers were more inline with what I typically expect from certain setups. Now, the numbers are a fair bit higher and I feel uncomfortable making claims/telling customers output based on these numbers vs the old (while they're just numbers, the old numbers were repeatedly proven to be within 3% of an actual dyno)

Mmmm, Others have reported that the new smoothing made the numbers go down a lil bit from previous version.

Ive got a base log that I know was done right before a dynojet run and its still at 701 as it was before the smoothing modification. It may be due to the log not being exponentially smoothed later in the log like it was before and as a result requires more smoothing than before. Let me know if this is characteristic to what you are seeing.

I found something really odd- the 16bit cars are getting higher numbers since the update, but the 32bit cars are staying the same.

20g on a two liter 19psi vs 21psi old:


20g on a two liter 19psi vs 21psi new:


16g on a two liter old:


16g on a two liter new:


2005 STI tuned various setups old:


2005 STI tuned various setups new:


My 16 bit cars want the old version back plz..... I feel uncomfortable using the program with the new numbers...
EDIT: if I change the correction factor from 1.09 to 1.07 I get old numbers again. Still don't like it though....
