You can check boost on AWM 1.8T's using the registered version - Measuring Block 115. Data is in millibars. Earlier 1.8T's don't have an intake pressure sensor.

HP is not directly measurable. You can log velocity vs. time - Measuring Block 5 - and use that to compute wheel HP. There is an excel spreadsheet that does the HP calcs around here somewhere. (You also need to know the mass of your car, in order to do the calcs). In order to determine flywheel Hp or whatever, you need to estimate the drivetrain losses, wind drag, rolling resistance, etc. Short answer: it's complicated. :suspicio:

Macabre had a good argument against that, but I can't find it on search right now. YMMV.
