Initially, I started this project to get the turbine/compressor RPM on my Android table for my Optima 2.0L. From there, I added more stuff to get a better understanding of my engine. All you have to do is to create some custom PIDs to monitor the values you want to look at on your Torque application.

In addition to my car, I provided an alternate version of some formulas to accommodate the 2.4L platform. With some efforts, other engines can be supported if the community is interested. Most of the work can be done with a dyno chart with some adjustments on a real car.

I'm a software engineer, so you will see some weird tricks that I used to make this work with Torque Pro. I recommend to start with the easy equations and validate them one by one. It is quite easy to screw up a formula and get a bad result. Let me know if you find something wrong or just want to add a new gauge to your dashboard.

*: Replace the * by the multiplication sign (x) when entering the equation.

/: Replace the / by the division sign (÷) when entering the equation.

In order to create your custom PIDs, you need to go the "Settings > Manage extra PID/Sensors >... Add custom PID" menu.

Air Density

This equation gives the air density inside the intake. Used to calculate the mass air flow rate or as a standalone gauge. The relative humidity is assumed to be constant at 50%.

Equation: .0717 / (val{Air Density} + .0000001)

IsBoost

This equation indicates whether the car is in boost or not. It is used to filter unwanted results from other equations. It checks if the MAP sensor is between 96 kpa and 255 kpa which means a boost between -0.78 PSI and 22.275 PSI.

P.S I'm still working to improve this formula based on the engine load when you are not at WOT...

T-Outlet PR

This equation gives the pressure ratio as seen by the turbo outlet. I used an average value of 0.5 PSI drop to compensate for the pipe/filter restriction and 1 PSI drop for the intercooler. Depending of your setup and what you want to monitor, you can change these values to accommodate your needs.

T-Inlet Air Temp

This equation gives an estimate of the air temperature at the turbo inlet. This estimate assumes that 65% of the air entering the air box is provided by the intake air temperature and 35% by the ambient air temperature at 0 km/h (Idle). As you go, this ratio is changed to reach 100% of the ambient air temperature at 128 km/h. This model is based on data that I collected on my car last summer. You will need to create an extra PID reading this value if you want to convert it to Fahrenheit instead of Celcius.

Max: 215.0

Equation: ((([46]*((.005*A)+.35))+([0f]*((-.005*A)+.65)))*abs(val{IsSpeedGT128}-1))+([46]*val{IsSpeedGT128})

IC Efficiency

This equation gives an estimate of the intercooler efficiency. You will see a negative result when you are not in boost since the air entering the IC is cooler than the intake air temperature (the equation acts a heater in this case). If you do not want to see this, you can multiply the equation by val{IsBoost} to filter out the result.
