The guy I dyno'd with said Fly wheel HP is about 2-1. I was there when a guy dyno'd his brand new GM 350 crate motor. He got up to 120 HP. So that would make it in the area of 240 at the flywheel. I think that is right where they are rated.

I got to play with a dyno at a local tech school, a buddy of mine got a whopping 32 horse power at the rear wheels!! <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> This rig had a 4.16 Tcase, 4.56 (I think) out of sidekick diff gears, and 32's.

Thanks guys..that is what I wanted to know....we're planning on doing some mods and and want to keep track to see if we're going in the right direction....lol

someone told me you loose something like 18% to the rear wheels....through the driveline..but I wasn't sure if that was correct...

once we do a rear wheel test, then anything from there should give us a good idea...huh?
