Sweet, I'l have to get one of these. But, how does it tell how much horsepower and torque you are making?

Try either the perfomance box or driftbox from Racelogic:

These are two of the best in the business. Performance box gives you everything you want plus lap timing including splits, and good analysis sofware. Driftbox = peformance box plus drifitng functions like analysing drift angles etc.

Those driftboxes are expensive. I don't think most people need a GPS unit, when the simple accelerometer like the G-Tech will work. If you are very serious about your telemetry, then yes go with a driftbox.
