About this app

Unlock the true potential of your car with PerfExpert!

Measure engine power, torque, and acceleration accurately within 2% using just your smartphone.

Say goodbye to expensive dyno tests and get objective, independent results instantly.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

PerfExpert - Car Onboard Dyno & Timer allows you to measure the performances of your car, such as its real power, torque, and acceleration times. It doesn’t require any connection to your car. Results are provided as detailed reports featuring interactive charts.

How does PerfExpert Dyno works ? It's simple :
1. Create your car profile => Describe your vehicle's specifications, including curb weight, tire sizes, and engine displacement. If you're unsure about these details, we'll guide you through the process.
2. Mount your phone in your car => No need for complicated connections. Simply secure your phone in the car, and PerfExpert will utilize its internal sensors to measure accurate acceleration.
3. Accelerate through the entire engine rev range => Choose a flat, straight, and horizontal road. Accelerate from low revs to the maximum revs while maintaining the same gear. It's that simple!

IMPORTANT : dyno test is not compatible with automatic gearboxes that doesn't have a manual mode.

With such a tool, you can check the efficiency of your various tunings, ECU mapping, chiptuning, and even your chassis settings.

Using the specification of the tested car and your device’s accelerometer, the application runs our algorithms and dynamic power loss calculations to provide the performances of your car with high accuracy.

Had high hope for this app. It is very detailed and the configuration for you car is very technical and specific which I like alot. After I went through the calibration and car set up I could not dyno my car even on a smooth road because my sport springs are to stiff and the app gives an error message because of this. I will not change my race suspension for this to work properly. I will request a refund. It is a good app for a Lincoln Town Car.

Hi Brian, PerfExpert is compatible with very race car stiff suspensions. From what you wrote, we would say that you tried to start the test while the car was still rolling. Before pressing the START button to initiate a test, you should make sure you stopped completely the car, please check the tutorial :

My car, a 2003 BMW 325i doesn't show up even though every other BMW from that year does. And when you do the Dyno you can't have an Automatic transmission. My car is automatic but you can select the gears it is in. I'm confused about what the gear minimum RPM us and the starting speed even though you start from a standstill. And my biggest confusion is: based on the formula for HP (HP=torque*rpm/5252) HP and Torque will always be the same at 5252 RPM, but the graphs never cross at 5252 RPM

You can just report to us that a car is missing in our database and we immediately add it. That said, even if your car is not listed you can create a custom car profile with custom parameters. The app description mentions that the dyno test can work only if you can lock a single gear during the whole acceleration, from low rev, to the rev limiter.

It's simple. Calibration may take couple tries if you do it wrong. I guess calibration pictures in the app could benefit from written words what's up and down, front and back. One of the pictures can be a bit of a guess. After that? You put the data, ACCURATELY. Stop the car, have the phone secure at acceptable position. Which is easiest thing in the world to do. You get green light, you drive. And results shown are very accurate, I've tested it on plenty of cars. Great app.
