Hey guys, it's time for me to seek opinions from my wise and experienced FF.com members
Today I did some runs with the G-Tech (the original model, not the comp). My goal was to see if my engine was really making the power that the factory claims (200kW). It has no mods or anything other than a (slightly dirty ATM) K&N panel filter.
I got 220 HP, which is just over 160kW at the wheels. Assuming 20% drivetrain loss, this means my engine is making 200kW. I know the reading may have some degree of error, but hopefully the drivetrain sucks more than 20% of the power too, so I think it's safe to say my engine is making 200kW - what do you guys reckon??
Note: I programmed in 1800kg for the weight of my car. The brouchure I have reckons the kerb weight is 1710kg and I weigh 118kg and had a bit over half a tank of fuel. Do you think this would be a reasonably accurate weight to use (esp. any of you guys if you've ever weighed your utes)??
Thanks for any thoughts.
