The rating is 240 brake horsepower. That is the rating at the flywheel including the accessories like water pump, power steering and alternator. Drivetrain losses including the transmission, axle shafts, wheel bearings etc will drop that to about 195 wheel horsepower. That torque converter sucks power.
Net horsepower without all accessories at the flywheel would be higher than 240 hp, probably 270 hp.

thanks for the info glad to see the dyno. 20% tranny loss for an automatic is pretty average. My honda ate 22.5% oh the power just trying to transfer it to the ground.

We normally figure 20% drivetrain loss.

Yes I started with a 3.4 pulley, twice I need to update that page on INTENSE'* website. My current stats can be found at:
