    Well, I have bought myself a vagcom cable off ebay and downloaded ross tec lite, and attempted to do a few logs.

    Being 100% honest I dont really know what I should be logging so these are random ones that I found the lite version would allow me to log.

    Do they look ok?

    Anyone else have the lite versio know what other blovks are useful to log?

    Thanks in advance

    Freeze the window on the row below the headers, scroll to the first row of actual logging run then use snipping tool to cut just the bit you need as you are missing headers so no idea what the values relate too and due to whole screen in shot the resoultion is rubbish... I have old eyes :)

    I normally aim for something like this..

    ...also... do runs in third gear from 2k rpm... bury the throttle and keep it buried until redline (or as legally/safe as you can to the redline)... needs to be like this to get a consistent amount of data..

    Blocks...

    As for what to log it would be useful to know what the car is (model/year), mods etc and what you are looking for (do you have any issues or fault codes...)

    Which blocks to log vary depending on the model/year and what issues you are trying to diagnose

    The TIP is unreal, it sounds like small children and small animals could be sucked in the intake now ha ha!
    As I have the lite version can you recommend any blocks I can log to make sure everything's running ok?

    all that airflow yet you get 240hp on the rollers.
    i know the lottery applies but that is odd.

    at least you can rest knowing its healthy.

    Tell me about it. I've spoke to others that ran that day any about 90% believe they are running 10-20 BHP more than what they ran on the rollers.
    If the rollers were reading low I could take that as my car running 250-260 bhp.
    your right though, the air flow seems great after reading various threads, and the car is running sweet as a nut :)
    ive taken the advise of not worrying about the numbers, the car is amazing to drive.
