Question gross hp v net hp

I was reading Blueprint edition 2 and they stated that the 250kw stroker has 335 net hp but also stated it has close 400 gross hp. Now my thoughts are that the second figure is the engines output with no accessories ie p/steer, aircon. Is this correct?

Re: gross hp v net hp

one is rear wheel hp and the other is motor output, correct me if i am wrong fellas if so thats only a 16% power loss so not bad i always allowed 25% for drivetrain loss

seems your right caz 250kw is 335hp allowing .75kw per hp or vise versa so what would gross hp be than

Re: gross hp v net hp

gross is with no accessories whatever and nothing in thw way of intake or exhaust restrictions. Net is a far more realistic measure as it includes thils like air cleaners, alternators and such. It has nothing to do with flywheel Vs real wheel HP
