Yup, I got one for about $120 or 125 new about 2 years back. It's pretty good and seems to be fairly accurate interms of the 0-60. Haven't tried it for the quarter yet, can't find a good enough stretch of road in MA for me to run on.

The horsepower measurement is a bit screwy I think, I wouldn't trust what it says, I think it has a variance off the target by about 10% to 20%.

Summit was running a special where if you buy $x worth of parts, they GIVE one to you. Check it out at www.summitracing.com. I buy K&N filters and other replenishable stuff there.

Gabe,
It's worth it if you take the time to find a level, straight stretch of road where you can do the testing.
Just be safe.
I like mine alot, has given me consistent results, and I believe the claim that it is about a tenth off, high or low, based on my track times.

Gabe....anything done to your car? I am in the market for a TT and was wondering what the specs are on yours. I am looking for a stock/near stock car w/ under 75k miles.

I have used one, seems to be accurate. It was within .2 at the track. I dont think the hp is accurate for an awd car though.
I have seen them at JC Whitney also for around $130 - $140. For about $150 you can get an HKS type 1 turbo timer that does basically the same thing. Check out my website under modifications for more info.

RS VR-4,
I found the hp to be pretty close, but it had to be a good clean pull.
With the old 15g's, I saw an average 412 whp with the G-tech, and the car dynoed at 422whp at AAM.

Maybe I am wrong, I was under the impression that it read high for wheel hp for our cars. Maybe the difference is in the way the run is done, it is pretty hard to find a level surface for some of us. Brian that is pretty sweet, what was your mods with that reading? I have 15gs know all I need it the arc2 and injectors. That should keep me satisfied for a few months.:D

I have a Gtech and seems to work preaty good. It's a good tunning tool. Has anyone done any stock 3s runs with it. I'm interested in the results. So far I've done a 0-60 of 4.6 seconds on it. And got an HP figure of 242whp. The best way to measure HP with it is to do a clean pull in third in in a mt, and watch the HP readings. The readings get screwed up between shifts where there's sudden jerks and encrease of Gs.

I ran when I was stock, I ran a 14.5 @ 5000 which would be mid 13's at sealevel. My 0-60 when I was stock was around 5.4, I dont know the conversion for that one though.
