15% is the standard rule of thumb for parasitic loss. It would be a little bit more for an auto. But a dyno is a dyno, there are many factors that go into producing a final RWHP. There is weather, temperature, mechanically variation on the dyno, mechanical tolerances in the particular engine.

But 15% is a decent guesstimate for what crank HP will translate to at the rear.
