 That's one thing.  I have a bog-down during warmup that it would help
 with (the O2 display shows I'm going full lean, but I don't know
 why).  The 'tuners' out there want to use it along with a O2
 sensor meter to fine tune their chip mods...

 It would be a little slow to react... I think those things are
 damped with Jello.  I did see a duty cycle meter that used
 the inertia of a meter movement to do it's averaging in a fairly
 recent electronics magazine article.
