Factory power, first of all, is rated at the flywheel and is PEAK power. So the Boss has 444hp PEAK at the flywheel...take out 12-15% and that is roughly the power at the wheels.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for explaining. I forgot about that. The factory 444 is crank where in the AM description they are claiming 60+ wheel HP so that makes the difference larger, but I guess since they are saying in the 60+ hp gain is across the curve and not the actual PEAK. Still a little confused, but I am starting to get it. haha
