Link to a HP calculator

Jon; is there a free, reasonably accurate engine HP calculator on the web, similar to Desktop Dyno, that you can link to? If so I suggest you stick the link permanently at the top of the home page and we can eliminate one of the most irritating repeat questions we get.

Jon:
Mark's server crashed late last year and when he finally restored everything, he made some format changes. Therefore, most if not all your links are not connecting. I believe that the calculators are still available, just a slightly different path. You may want to correct these on your hyperlinks. Ed.

EDIT:
Example
"Optimum Header Length"
1. Your Link - http://www.prestage.com/carmath/calc_headerlength.asp
2. New Link - http://www.prestage.com/community/Ca...h/default.aspx

The main "Car Math" page is here: http://www.prestage.com/community/Car+Math/default.aspx

From there you can easily find the revised paths.

Ed

Those are pretty good I guess. Just looking for something to direct the "Can someone run a Desktop Dyno on my engine?" questions that come in all the time.

Thanks Ed, I will look into that.

willys -- yes, most of those are extremely basic calculators.

I don't know of any free online tool that is even comparable to Desktop Dyno. We used to have a guy on the board that was the head of an engine software company. I approached him to make a "lite" or trial version of his software for our guys to use online, and offered to advertise/sell his product in exchange. He liked the idea, but the company was run by businessmen, not programmers, and he had no idea how to handle it technically.

We should figure out some way to handle those questions though, since it's extremely inefficient in its current state. I wonder if there's some way to collect the data online, though a form, then download it to Desktop Dyno on a local computer. So, we could just run batches of numbers, say, once a day, automatically, through a single offline copy of Desktop Dyno. We could say to our members: "Enter your information in the form below. You will receive an automatic PM within 24 hours containing your Desktop Dyno analysis". It may be a software license violation though.

Jon,
I have suggested that there be sub-categories under engine (carb, heads, cam, other internals, engine electronics/fuel injection, yada yada yada), and this is based on that. Add "engine calculators" as another sub-category there for the too-often asked "how much power will this make" questions to go.

Also, I feel that the lounge be split into two- "the Garage" which is car-related stuff that is non-technical, and "the lounge" which isn't related to hotrodding.

These suggestions are due to the amount of traffic and new threads posted daily. I might start a poll on this issue, see how the others would like the idea of categorization. It's a part of growing.

Thanks,
matt
