It's 6hp LESS than mine at the crank. The HP numbers the auto manufacturers provide are the results of running the engine on an ENGINE dyno (crank HP). Subtract %15 from the numbers they brag about to account for parasitic drivetrain loss, and you get 595HP at the rear wheels. I've only ever measured mine on a chassis dyno, and it came out to 600hp at the wheels.

Keep in mind that my car's engine wasn't built to take advantage of forced induction (I would need to lower the compression from it's current 10.5:1 to no more than 9:1), and that would cost about $3k to do. If I were to do it, I could add another 4-5 pounsds of boost, which would add about 200hp at the crank, which would result in about 685 at the wheels.

It sounds like it's pretty impressive, so it's all good. Smile | :)

For the record, I think the 2015-20 GT350 is an all-around better car for the street than the GT500 is. To be honest, I wish I had spent my money on a GT350 instead of building my car. It would have cost half as much.
