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.
