I'll be a happy chappy if the drivetrain losses are up at 50%, 150rwhp for my old motor will give me 300hp, woohoo I can quote the same numbers as the other big boys ;D ;D

It will be interesting to see what the drivetrain losses are and what effects different components and condition may have, also different tyre, wheel and gearing combos can have.

I know tyre sizes can affect the final figures as can whether the gearbox is an auto or not as the torque convertor can act as a torque multiplier fo rthe dyno.

Glen according to the "Dyno Guru" 34mm chokes should be good to flow 200 bhp and still provide good low down response (high intake velocity at low rpm) ....hence I reverted back to the 34's as the 37's made no difference in peak HP.
I should have the car back on the chassis dyno later this week to make a direct comparison between BHP and rear wheel HP....so the yard stick is 163 rw hp = 180 bhp...(initial results on chassis and engine dyno) .....so with 201bhp we should get around 180 rw hp or approx 135 rw kw .
Nothing else in the driveline has changed so apart from atmospheric conditions (air pressure and temp) it will be as close a comparison as possible.
