Hi folks, hope you all had a good Christmas.
I keep getting asked what my flywheel power is, or "Whats it putting out at the engine?" and to be fair, I have no idea!!
It's making 446.8BHP at the wheels, so can somebody give me a rough idea what it would be at the flywheel please?
Cheers :cheers:

does it not tell you on your dyno sheet?
It just shows the power and torque/curves at the hubs on the printout mate

Well I'd guess if you had losses of 15% then around 525Bhp.

Rwd on average lose 12-14% from the flywheel to the wheels so if you work it back with a bad loss of 14% it means you've got as good as 520bhp if you wanna be tight with only a 12% loss then 508bhp at the fly.
