    You mean like desktop dyno 2000? (motion software)
    A guy on the Monte Carlo list I am on put his specs from his 12.5 car into that program, and estimating the HP/Torque from his track runs, he determined that it was VERY close to what his engine was making. The software is missing a few inputs, such as roller rockers, and is overly favorable towards roller cams, stretching their gains into the "thats nowhere near accurate" level.

    Check out the latest copy of Car Craft. The one with the picture of a GM RamJet crate engine on the cover. They tested some software that lets you play with everything from cams, pistons and heads to gear ratios in the axle and tranny. They seemed pretty impressed with it. Can't remember the name of the software but it only cost $50 or so.
