    Need some Blitz electronics help.

    Hey, I just ordered the Blitz Turbo Timer...I got the base one (without the peak boost hold, etc etc) because I was planning on buying the SBC-iD with the Power Meter. Was this the right choice? From what I understand the Power Meter will have all the features that the top of the line Blitz Turbo Timer has so why should I buy both? (Or am I mistaken?)

    the PM-iD does not act as a turbo timer.
    I have the PM-iD and I really think it was a waste of money - a bit of bling, but that's about it.

    seriously? waste of money?

    amazing device that essentially reproduces a dynomometer, logging and displaying horsepower and speed in real time. Functions include bar graph power display, digital power display, peak/hold horsepower, and power vs. mph. Plus, there are timers for 1/8 mile, 1/4 mile, and 0-60 times, and the device can store the last six runs.

    If it did this against rpm rather than mph and allowed for this data to be downloaded or displayed somewhere other than the 1 x1" screen and could graph other inputs such as AFR - it may be useful as a credible tuning tool. The HP figures are dependent on the slope of the ground and the weight estimate made by the user. I would rate its accuracy and reproduction of results as maybe +/-5-10% and if you are looking at sqeezing 10 or 15 HP out of a car - that is within the error bounds, so are the changes you are making really having a positive effect???

    Like I said - I have this item and have used it for over 12 months.

    I know it won't act as a turbo timer but I'm saying...the reason everyone gets the better Blitz TT (don't know the model name) is because it has a built in boost gauge and displays the peak boost (I'm sure there are other functions too) but since I have a boost gauge and the Power Meter has the peak boost hold function...is there anything I would be missing since I'm buying the regular Blitz TT?

    Hopefully not...because its only like a $20 difference...I just don't want to buy a TT for specific functions that I'm going to get with the Power Meter anyway...plus the regular Blitz TT has a cabin temp function
