    Spotted this on the Concept3 website: I noticed there isn't one for the 2.4L NA Engine, but that's for later... My biggest questions are: What exactly is this gizmo, and...

    This is more of a theoretical question than anything I'm going to actually attempt. But I have heard that lots of torque is good for towing. And looking at the specs of my hybrid, I noticed that while it 'only' has 192 hp, it has a combined torque rating of 270 ft-lbs. That sounds like it would...

    I'm looking for the tightening sequence and torque specs for my '13 Hybrid. It's the 2.4L Theta II engine. I believe it's the same as the non-hybrid models. I searched here and elsewhere online to no avail. Thanks in advance. Sent from my LGUS997 using Tapatalk

    For those that are using torque pro app, what settings did you change to get more accurate readings? Maf/map, atmospheric pressure adjustment.... Can you monitor wastegate voltage?

  8. The Service Center
    Needing some help. I was able to find an online manual and find the torque setting for the castle nut, but am having a hard time finding the number for the inner tie rod ball joint portion. It seems some cars can go from 60-80 lb ft, and I just want to be sure I'm in the right range. Also, is...

    I am an OBD scanner newbie and am greatly enjoying customizing my driving experience using OBD apps. As I can't choose between Torque Pro and DashMaker, I figured I would just list the pros of each app as I see them, and would love to get others feedback : Pros of Torque Pro...
  11. Hybrids
    I'm surprised no one has been discussing this! This info was never mentioned at the introduction of the car or at the presentation/launch for the Korean home market, Hyundai never listed it when they introduced their version (and still don't), they only mention the total system horsepower. I...

    So I scoured through all the Torque threads I could find and couldn't find an answer to what I'm looking for. I have the obd-II adapter and torque pro/Kia plugin. No matter what I have the compensation set to for elevation, it constantly read 10.7 psi. When I run down the street I see max boost...

    Has anyone had experience with both? I know a lot of you guys have or are using the SRT4 plate and the cresent doesnt match up 100% but i have not read anyone having any issues with that.

    Has anyone managed to successfully export a Torque Track Recorder video from there phone or tablet to a pc. I cannot find a program that will change a .SRT file to .MP4 I've tried the Torque Wikipedia method but I cant get it to work on a windows 64 bit operating system.
  18. High Performance
    All, I thought it would be good to start a space for posting Torque app and DashCommand app logs to share, analyze, etc. If there are other apps that produce data logs then those are welcome too. We just need that person or myself to create a new folder for those too! Anyone can upload their...
