Underrated?

What does this translate to at the FW?
Does the 367 RW HP suggest that DCX is actually underrating the power of the SRT8s by listing 425 HP at the FW?

I have heard of similar cases where underating occurs such as in the 03-04 Cobras. Ford supposedly underrates at the FW by about 30 HP.

It all depends on the transmission and convertor. It is not an ordinary slush box auto so I would imagine driveline loos wouldn't be as bad as your average auto tranny. New Vettes seem to be putting down 330-345 RWHP (400hp) so I would say its in the ballpark

Those are the numbers!!! Looks good. Hopefully I will have some dyno info on our MSRT-8 very soon, before and after a cat-back install no less :D

Nice numbers. It looks like the HP comes on early but fall off later in the powerband. Torque numbers look real good.

Due to the resolution or scan or whatever, you are seeing the HP and Torque cross, but it isn't obvious. The HP curve is definately building as RPM builds, and the torque is the one dipping.
