so were losing like 46 ft lbs of torque?! so its only putting like well in my case like 184 lbs of torque to the ground? or am i confused beyond measure.
Thats exactly right. For instance if you make 200hp on the dyno it sounds a little low, when really the engine is putting out 250. If you make 320hp to the wheels the engine is putting out 400hp! That is why I have always said Series II L67'* have way underrated torque, because GM rates them at 280lb.ft, but I have seen stock L67'* pull 270lb.ft to the wheels which is over 330lb.ft at the crank. Once you get up into high horsepower numbers it gets really really crazy.
