I hear different folks using horsepower rating at the flywheel, and some at the rear-end. Is this worth noting?

manny tranny's lose about 12%, auto's lose about 15-18%

i would say with those mods, you would be just about breaking even. id say maybe 5-10 over factory stock to the wheels. those 3.73's actually make you LOSE a bit of power, but it wont feel like it. CAI untuned will net you maybe 5 to the rear wheels, and the muffler may net you 5 to the wheels, but its not just straight addition, you gain less and less from each mod when your car gets less and less stock. id say you prolly gained 6 or 7 to the wheels

haha, sorry!!!

but i agree, if your car has been poorly maintained, and its gona a long time without a tune up, you could very well have less hp than stock. the only way to find out is to dyno it, but id say BEST case scenario is you got 170 to the wheels, and that is assuming a manual transmission, and a well maintenanced engine.

remember, how fast your car is isnt all controlled by how much HP/TQ you have. for one, weight plays a big role, and also, the curve of your hp/tq levels makes a diference. there is really no way to tell how fast it is unless you go out and run a 1320' run.

Wow, when I dynoed about a month ago, my final result was 170 and I treat my car like its my own kid. Am I having a power loss from something?

No 170/.80 assuming a 20% loss puts you at 212.5 flywheel hp...not bad
This also shows how hard it is to make "real power"...my 4.6dohc with 10-12 psi of boost and full mods and tune makes 380rwhp..be skeptical when you hear of crazy number in hp or 1/4 mile...

considering 01-04 v6's are rated for 190 hp but in reality are only pushing around 160 rwhp then no you shouldn't be

All those numbers sound right to me. My '01 was 193rwhp, and 240rwtq N/A with CAI, 3:73's performance tune, and dual exhaust. Point being, all motors are different. One could have 193bhp, and the next one 173bhp. It is all based on if the engine builder got lucky the night before. I guess mine did.

Either way, here's my results:

I still feel like I should have higher numbers with my mods

yeah but look at that torque curve dude. you are basically maxed out for torque from 3200 all the way up to 5K.
