I've just connected an OBD2 ELM327 thingy, and am enjoying being able to see what's going on in my engine. 

I have a couple of questions re the power readout.

What is this reading? 
Is this a direct value from the OBD, or is it an extrapolated number from other readings?
Is it simply an RPM conversion? Fuel usage?
Mine is reading total dreamland (600hp, which would be great, but might test my truck), how do I recalibrate?

Cheers,

Tootle

This reading is estimated from fuel flow, which is calculated from MAF if it isn't directly available from the vehicle. Make sure you have the correct fuel type and engine size selected in the Vehicle Manager. If its still incorrect after that, you can adjust the Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (BSFC) setting to directly modify the power readout.
