DD2000 and 2003 can be downlodad via torrents or other. I got the 2000-version via Pirate bay- RIP- and it for sure runs on Windows 10.

I find it easy to use, and output sensible- at least With a N/A engine. I had trouble trying to runa SS or TS engine.

Are the newest/current Version DD5?

Yes but 6 is in limited release and has been for ....6 months or longer so it should be coming soon. I have it and it has some nice updates like now it lets you tell it what rpm you want the exhaust tuned for and it spits out the pipe lengths and diameters it chose. I forget what else is in there but I like that feature. Dynomation6 got a bunch of updates too.

Version 6 just got a bunch more features and a major makeover. ....so everything I said about the FE model ( desktop dyno) being high is now wrong.

On my engine FE is now reading 864hp vs about 1020 in yesterday's version. The wave model now reads 880 vs about 950 yesterday. 850-900 is where I think it will be when I finally get it running right and to the dyno so as sad as I am to see lower estimates I think they are probably closer to real.

There is a new screen the spits out what it thinks the optimal min port area should be....it says mine are a bit small which is also what pipimax tells me so that seems to match.

When I open the same screen, simulator lrun log, in the FE model it gives me what it thinks is optimal for the intake and exhaust dimension.....very pipemax like.

I use Performance Trends Engine Analyzer Pro with Pipemax for a second opinion.
