160 crank horsepower.
148whp = 7.5% parasitic loss.

175whp a the same parasitic loss of 7.5% means the car is making 190 crank horsepower.

Unless you pulled the motor and dynoed the stock crank horsepower, those are the only numbers we have to go on. Yes we all know that the stock motor is probably underrated, but we have no way of proving it, or how much. These are the facts.
Yeah... I understand how you got your number, but you can't just make up a percentage because we don't know what the true engine hp is.

You find me one case of a car only exhibiting 7.5% parasitic loss through the drivetrain and I'll believe your crazy fairy tale.
What's that?? You'd like an eco-tune...
