So... if that is true then a ROUSH Stage 3 Phase 3 will have just under 574HP to the wheels. I figure that number will increase once I put in the 20lbs lighter driveshfat and tune the car up to the Coyote limit of 700HP to the crank. If you watch the driveshaft video from American Muscle, removing 20lbs of rotational mass is similar to removing 80lbs of unstrung weight... Lots of nerdy stuff I dont quite understand yet but hey. I'm about to find out.
Think about it if it spins, the engine is moving it, so less weight and friction of the parts the engine actually turns, will end up in bigger power gains than if you were to say remove your back seat. sure it'll save 40 lbs of weight but, it's not 40lbs the engine is actually having to work to move. If that makes sense. In easier terms a 20lb drop from the power and drive train will go a lot further than stripping interior.
