Other shops have had less, such 360rwhp SAE on a dynojet. If the motor is SAE certified, it makes 415hp, give or take 1%. I still don't know if it is though. Why is it 430 at the wheel? What % is being used to come up with that number? Happy dyno's but we don't race dyno's. Same with LS3 motors making 390rwhp while rated at 436....a happy dyno!!!

There are only three things the copilot should ever say:
1. Nice landing, Sir.
2. I'll buy the first round.
3. I'll take the ugly one.
