BHP

I'm new, so hi!

I have some newbie questions: Does BHP stand for Brake Horse Power? Is that the same as wheel horsepower?

How close is the actualy dyno wheel horsepower of a typical stock celica to the rated one? (GT/GTS)

the rated one (180hp) is to the crank. to the wheels anywhere from mid 150 - mid 160 (I had 154, lower end of the scale) bhp is brake hp.

I take it BHP is no longer a commonly used term. I have seen it used several places.

It's not commonly used in the US. I know that they use it in the UK, they always says brake horse power on Top Gear.

Everybody uses Braked Horse Power. I've only heard WHP being used on this board. I think the US are a fair bit behind on the evolution scale.

think about it there rev, WHP is a lower number, BHP is a higher number, 94.9% (the other 5.1 being golf and race times) the higher number is far superior to a low one.

I was kinda amazed that a 1970's RPG can easily take out an M1 tank. The accupants usually live, but the tank is done for. I thought they were more armoured than that. Apparently not.
