well correct me if im wrong, but i think theres a 15-20% loss between bhp and wheel hp.


bhp is at the crank and whp is at the wheels

and remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question

how can the GTS have 180BHP? BHP = "Boost Horsepower", as in the car is under boost from a turbo or supercharger.


Correct me if im wrong?

Damn spineyes

First off BHP= BRAKE HORSEPOWER.

Brake horspower is basically measure of an engine's horsepower without the loss in power caused by the gearbox, generator, water pump and other paristic effects. When you read the specifications from dealers, they always tell you the BHP.

The actual horsepower delivered to the driving wheels is less. The actual horspower delivered to the wheels is called
WHP= Wheel Horspower. The true way to find out WHP is run it on a dyno.

9 hp is still better than nothing that just means our cars are desighned reall well from the factory when you can free up more hp
