1)  We're getting ready to release the new Port Flow Analyzer v3.5.  It has several new features, including 

Compatible with SuperFlow's new USB compatible FlowCom.
Full backup and restore features.
Emailing features for tests, reports, and graphs.
Ability to pick individual cylinders and combinations of cylinders to get reported or graphed.
Company logo graphics can be included in printed results.
New Graph styles and layouts.
Works with our new automatic Valve Opener.
EZ Start Wizard to more easily get you started running tests.
And much more.

Click here to view the Readme.doc file listing all the changes for v3.5.  Click here to download a demo for you to try.

This update is free to anyone who purchased their Port Flow Analyzer since October 2006.  For other owners of v3.0, the update charge is $75 for the Pro version and $55 for the Standard (basic) version.  The new User's Manual is not yet complete, and there are still some finishing touches we want to make.  We expect to release it some time in June.  If you want to purchase the update and help us debug the Preliminary version, download the demo (click here) and call with your credit card to unlock in.


2)  More Demo Movie Files  We've added more movies (.wmv files) to our Demo Movie Files page. These files will show several features of the product, and are an excellent way to:

- Decide if you want to purchase a product.

- Learn how to use a product you have already purchased.

Visit this page by clicking on this link: http://www.performancetrends.com/movie_file_demos.htm

We're very anxious to hear suggestions on products and features you would like demo'd this way. We also would like comments on how the movies helped or didn't help you, or any problems you had viewing the movies.  Email us at feedback@performancetrends.com


3)  Circle Track Log Book - Metric Option  A very common request we get is a "Metric" option for most all our programs.  Well, we've added a metric option to the Circle Track Log Book.  Now you can choose to work with English or Metric units.  The program even keeps track of which units your files are in, and converts them back and forth between the 2 types of units.  Check it out at:  http://www.performancetrends.com/Circle_Track_Log_Book.htm

The Circle Track Log Book has several demo movie files showing how to use its many features.  Try some of these at this link: http://www.performancetrends.com/movie_file_demos.htm


4)  New Salesman/Technician To Assist You  We've hired a new phone salesman/technician to help on our phone lines.  This should make your time on the phone with us shorter and more productive.  He will also help us get many new features added to our website, like on line purchasing, bulletin board, etc.  Now we can get to some of those projects we've had to put off. 


5)  High Gas Prices - Fuel Economy Calculator  With gas at $3.50 or more a gallon, you want to get every MPG out of each gallon.  You may want to check out our Fuel Economy Calculator.  It is the only program we know of which lets you try vehicle, driving, and some engine mods to get the best cruising fuel economy.  If you have one of our Engine Analyzer v3.2 programs or Engine Analyzer Pro v3.5, it will link up with them so you can see how more detailed engine mods will affect your MPG.  Check it out at:  http://www.performancetrends.com/fuel_economy_calculator.htm

You can download a demo to try it at this link: http://www.performancetrends.com/download.htm#FuelEconomyCalculatorDemo
