you mean psi? like in a turbo or supercharger? it depends on your car. and its not a straight line..

like, for instance...IF 1 psi = 1 hp, 2 psi does not necessarily = 2 hp

no he means PS. instead of using horsepower as a measurement of power in an engine the japanese use PS which a different measurement. i think 1 HP = .9xx PS

Thx for the info Kim thumbsup No soup for the rest of you grin

Reason I asked is because the blitz supercharger for the GT is making 172ps at the crank, which is approximately 191HP. I hope they can get it over 200hp after they're done tuning it smile

172 PS would be 169.6 BHP since 1 HP equals 1.0139 PS. So to get PS from HP you would multiply the HP by 1.0139. Solving for HP, you divide the PS by 1.0139. smile

well, if you listen to kim's conversion: 1hp actually equals .9ps. that means ps is greater than hp, so for instance, if you had 10ps, the horsepower # will be greater than 10.

You've got it backwards. 1 PS equals 0.986 HP. 1 HP equals 1.0139 PS.
