Well, interesting. Looks like someting I would put together, lol. But,
to keep my tuning simple I just use the plain old air density. I go
back to basics which use absolute pressure and temperature only and
simply calculate the density at any given time. It is only a few
calculator strokes. If I want to see how density of teh ari affects the
current tune (carbed and mechanical injection) then I use the density
when the tune was established, calculate the new density and ratio it to
see how much of a change is needed. With my curent mass air flow meter,
I don't even have to do that. The brain box measues the mass of air
directly and then figures fueling as appropriate.
Density altitude meters can be had for, I think, about a 100 bucks. I
bought an old airplane absolute pressure gauge instead.
