Yeah, i guess having the spec of the power at the fly gives some sort of consistency between cars.
With driveline etc, power will sure to vary according to wear lubes used.
Also another matter is the inconsistencies between dyno to dyno.
Guess with power at the fly it's tested on the same dyno and a miminum figure has to be achieved (i think thats the way it is).
Example if the 4.0L inline 6 makes 157kw if it makes less it has to be ditched. This is when factory freaks can crope up.
