1)  Engine Analyzer Pro v3.5 Bug Fixes  Like always happens when you release a new version, customers find things you've missed.  The Engine Analyzer Pro is now up to v3.5 A.029.  (In your program, click on Help, then About Engine Analyzer Pro to see the complete version number.)  Keep watching for newsletters and updated "readme.doc" files for EA Pro to see what the latest version is and what recent changes have been made to v3.5.  

Click on this link for the Readme.doc file showing the most recent changes for EA Pro v3.5: http://www.performancetrends.com/text-files/EA%20Pro%20v3.5%20Readme.doc

Click on the following link to view "Appendix 10 New Features in Version 3.5" from the Pro's User's Manual:  http://www.performancetrends.com/PDFs/EAP%20Supp35.pdf

Click on the following link to download a demo of this program or to update your current version 3.5:  http://www.performancetrends.com/download.htm#eapro

If you already have Version 3.5, select to do a "Refresh" installation when prompted.  This is not critical, but may save you a phone call to unlock this update.  

The Engine Analyzer Pro v3.5 free is a free update to anyone who has purchased v3.3 since July 2006.  For owners of v3.3 purchased before July 2006 it is a $60 update.  


2)  SuperFlow's New FlowCom and Port Flow Analyzer v3.5  SuperFlow (tm) has released a new version of their FlowCom flow bench electronics (identified by its black faceplate) in late 2006.  It has several new features and communicates differently than the old FlowCom (tan faceplate).  Since we are in the process of updating the Port Flow Analyzer to version 3.5, we made it communicate with both the new and old FlowComs.  If you have purchased one of these new, black FlowComs and have our Port Flow Analyzer software, contact us about obtaining a PRELIMINARY v3.5.

3)  Cam Test Stand / Cam Analyzer v3.2 Updates/Bug Fixes  Some of our European users found things that didn't work well for cams measured in millimeters, or measuring cams with all intake or all exhaust lobes on a cam (typical of OHC and DOHC engines).  These have been fixed along with some other issues we found.  We recommend that all customers with our Cam Test Stand, especially those using millimeters or measuring OHC or DOHC cams, download this updated version.  The Cam Analyzer is now up to v3.2 B.070.  (In your program, click on Help, then About Cam Analyzer to see the complete version number.)  

If you already own the Cam Analyzer v3.2 (std or Plus Version), you can download this update free at:  http://www.performancetrends.com/download.htm#ca  You can unlock this latest version yourself. Just be sure to use exactly the same Registered Name when you install this new version and then the same unlock number will unlock the update. You can view your Reg Name by clicking on Reg To: at the top of the main screen on your current version, before you download and install the new version.  

The Plus Version is a $200 upgrade from the std Cam Analyzer, and is only recommended if you are using the Cam Test Stand.

4)  Circle Track Log Book - Get Ready for This Season  If you've thought about getting more organized this season, then now is the time to consider our Circle Track Log Book.  Now you can keep track of all those adjustments and parts, so you can quickly check what's changed between certain setups.  Check it out at:  http://www.performancetrends.com/Circle_Track_Log_Book.htm
