I think G-tec's are pretty accurate. When we used to drag race a lot at the track, we found the G-tec to be about 1/10 slower than the track timing equipment and a couple of miles per hour faster. We did this with the G-tec in the car at the drag strip, so it was a fair evaluation.
Yes G-tec's can be fudged with so you get better numbers or what ever, but if you are looking at it as a tuning aid to see if this mod makes the car faster, then I think it is a good tool.

And if you want to borrow one, I've got one but I'm about 3 hrs from Milwaukee. I'm coming down to Heartland for thanksgiving tho on Thursday. You are welcome to use it, just let me know.

Dan I've got one laying around my shop somewhere, I'll see if I can find it. It's an older version 1 g-tech.

We should hook the GTech up to my GT sometime when I come over or you head my way Dave. Would be interesting to see what the numbers look like.

I can give it to you, I'll probably be out there on Friday. No the area by my shop would not be a good place to test it.
