Well my design and placement of "stuff" is no better than some car designers.  Yesterday I was having to remove some fuel lines to get to the clamp that holds down the shut off valve bracket.  I am willing to pay this price because, I now can build a "tray" this winter to hold the ECU on top of the radiator in a box and I have left enough room for the Data Logger in the bottom of the car where Edlebrock suggested installing it---that was planning on my part on the ECU  luck when the return pump didn't fit in the bottom.

Sounds like its all coming together Sparky.
What was the logic for putting the logger down the bottom?, heat?

Thanks

Jon the QuickData (mine is the advanced drag package) asks that it be installed in the bottom of the car on the center line for it has two G-meters that record linear and lateral Gs.

Hope you record a lot of the former and none of the latter  :-),

LOL   I will settle for .25-.30 linear and hope for 0-.1 on the lateral for some reason just dancing around registers about .1 g

Bill;

After getting somewhat lost in Hawaii, Joline and I just joined the tech revolution by trading in our old cellphones for Motorola Droid Maxx smart phones. I had not realized when we bought them just how versatile they are.

For example, a Droid Maxx has a built-in 3-axis accelerometer, a 3-axis gyroscope, a barometric sensor, a magnetometer, a light sensor, and a good GPS. It even has a cell phone in there somewhere  :-D

There are a few apps available that allow the phone to log the data and export it to a spreadsheet. As an experiment, I put the phone on the center console of my truck and recorded the x,y,z accelerometer data while I drove into town; it plotted a nice graph of the drive data. At the same time I had it record GPS data showing the track superimposed on a map, max & min speed, distance travelled, and also plotted the speed & altitude vs time.

There is also an app that provides a nice big digital GPS speedometer readout. If you desire, it turns the display upside down so you can place it on your dash-- the display reflects off the windshield as a head-up display.

I think this is not a substitute for a full-fledged data acq system but what it does, it does very well!

Neil,  As I understand it a lot of the "Tuner" crowd can program their ecu from their cell phones---most likely to get around the states that have real tuff  performance enhancement laws

Frankie  I don't know how you could call the minor stuff I did all day long as serious---but it has to happen---lol

Well Tonight I thjink there may be hope for the MALE human  after all---what do we share in common with Lions---well we are the hunter-- killers of our spicies!!!!!!!! :-D

Tonight the Alpha Female of our pride contacted me about killing the Alpha cockroach that was intruding into her shower space---so one of the ever so few opportunities for me to "PROVE my WORTH" as the house husband.   I grabbed today's paper out of the recycle basket --rolled it up into a modern version of a club---and in best caveman tradition attacked---was successful   8-)  I proved my worth as defender of the realm --- therefore earned a signature on the next parts check---thank you Miss Linda---we males have so few occasions to demonstrate our being needed----lol
