If you are not sure, you can purchase a Gift Certificate for any amount $20 or higher.  We will refund the difference should you decide to give too much, up to 50% of the original amount.  Say you give a $100 gift certificate, and your racer decides on a $79.95 program.  We'll refund the $20.05 difference.  These can also be emailed at the last minute.  Shopping could not be easier, AND you're getting them what they want.  Gift Certificates are not available on line, you have to call 248-473-9230 and ask for sales.

If you have any questions, call 248-473-9230.  We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.


2)  New, USB Swirl Meter  We've got a new application for our Micro DataMite logger as the readout for our Swirl Meter.  Our Swirl Meter is a flow bench accessory, and measures the motion of the air as it enters the cylinder through the intake valve.  Heads with the proper amount or swirl will burn the air/fuel charge more efficiently, require less spark advance, and produce more power for the same amount of air and fuel flow.

The new USB Swirl Meter readout provides a smaller size, but still a large digit, backlit LCD readout.  It still does direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise), Average/Maximum/Minimum displays, and a menu to configure the features for your particular needs.

The new, digital USB communications is now much more precise than the old analog method for letting our Port Flow Analyzer read swirl.  And it requires no calibration.  It's basically "plug and play".

  for more information on our new USB Swirl Meter.

If you have one of our older swirl meters, we can upgrade it to the new USB display.  Call 248-473-9230 or email us at sales@performancetrends.com for details.
