    Can I measure bhp and torque with VCDS???

    Hi,
    very new to VCDS and have managed a few simple procedures but wondering about the possibilities
    of measuring bhp and torque for the simple reason that I recently bought a tuning chip and would like to confirm I am getting near the extra bhp promised.

    I'm guessing I need to go into the measuring blocks section but not sure.

    Any help whatsoever greatly appreciated!
    Thanks

    It can be done but not for your car.
    Log torque vs revs then the sums are available to change to bhp.
    Just one blast at 100% throttle in 3rd or 4th is required.

    For your car the chip is skewing the torque figures, possibly too much to be acurate.

    Thanks Andy.
    WOuld you mind explaining how to log torgue pls?
    Also I assume I need set things up to log then go for a drive and give it the throttle you mention.

    Thank you.
