So this seems interesting... Max HP (at the wheel?) is 541 (which seems about right...if you add 15% back, you're a touch over 625hp).

Is torque measured in Nm? 513 +15% puts it just shy of the stated 601Nm (around 590). If this in lb/ft, it's way high.

Wonder what the real output would have been had they rigged the car correctly....... morons!! :rolleyes:

To wit - the intercoolers were not used at all, airflow for cooling nonexistent, what's the point of such a dyno pull? - 600 HP is approx. 1,800 to 2,000 HP equivalent of power that goes into the engine: 35% exhaust, 30% coolant, 25% to the wheels and 10% friction - that engine had big time heat soak, probably reduced boost and retarded timing :eek:
