Question Bluefire with CAT engine

I have a 2007 Fleetwood Discovery with a 330 HP CAT C7 engine.

I am considering changing from my VMSpc to the BlueFire.

I want to know if the BlueFire will show HP and Torque on that engine.

Does anyone have the BlueFire and CAT combination that can tell me if HP and Torque are displayed?

The VMSpc calculates those values. BlueFire says that they do not calculate anything, they only display what comes from the ECU. I do not think that the CAT ECU provides HP and Torque, so I am hoping that someone with that combo can help with that info from experience.

Yes, but again it is a calculated value derived by the Engine Computers. Both CAT and Cummins

On my 02 Country Coach with a Cat C12, BlueFire displays both HP and torque. It also display many other engine parameters including a calculated fuel mileage, fuel remaining etc. I found the learning curve a little steep and frustrating at times, but now that I have it setup with a good display, I really enjoy the information provided.
