For these reasons, it'* probably quite realistic/conservative to use a drivetrain loss figure of 20%. Using this percentage, 773.2 / 0.80 = 966 crankshaft horsepower . It might actually be more or less, but we think it'* safe to say that our cam, heads and tuning are getting the job done.
Simply amazing! Hope to see a video of this beast on the dyno sometime!
