    hi guys,

    have any of you tried any simulation software like Desktop Dyno?

    is it worth the investment?

    There are quite a few of us that have desktop dyno 2000, I've also got "engine analyzer" but haven't spent much time with it.

    With good data input, DD2K can be pretty good. It's at its best though, I think, as a tool to determine what kind of effect certain changes (heads, cams, etc) will have on the overall engine.

    investment? no

    Like Dorian said, its good for seeing changes, its not good for determining exactly what you engine is going to do.
