Re: [DML] How to measure HP (WAS: "Fastest" DeLoreans)

The 3 litre turbo alpine (sorry to keep droning on about it) was 
*measured* at 43hp loss in the transmission. This is achieved by the 
rollers measuring how quickly they slow down when the throttle is lifted 
and the clutch pressed. However the drag of a transmission isn't the 
same (wheels driving transmission) as when the engine is driving the 
wheels - but it's a good ballpark

However I've heard figures up to 60hp claimed for a UN1
