RE: [DML] Dyno HP

Yes,  I have first-hand expoerience. We tested a number of cars recently 
including Dave Swingle's bone stock car which was in fine running condition. 
It produced 99.4 peak HP at the rear wheels, and 138.7 ft-lbs of torque. 
Since his car has a manual transmisison you can assume about 12% drive train 
losses. That yields about 114 HP at the flywheel.

I think the 130 HP rating rather "optimistic". (fraudulent?)

For additional info I recommend getting a copy of Gullwing Magazine, volume 
3, issue 4 with my article on the dyno testing/tuning we did.
