    Is there some software or another method that will help me estimate my engine's HP and torque?

    I've used Desktop Dyno quite a bit but I feel Engine Analyzer does a better job.

    Shhh - <a target="_blank" href=http://68.64.52.249:81/ea30.zip> get it here </a>

    I started with nothing and I still have most of that left! - <a target="_blank" href=http://www.echobit.com:81/k5/> Pictures</a>

    Those "g-tec" meters actually work! I borrowed one after I got my new engine. It was within 15HP of the GM dyno sheets. That could easily be gotten with more tuning, different exhaust, weather, etc
