I think this car is underrated by at least 12 HP
 
There is no way a stock car lays down 141 RWHP with 160 at the FW.

your thoughts?

It's hard to say without knowing drivetrain losses. I don't think 12% loss is way off the mark for a manual trans in a FWD car.

sorry but what car are we talking about? the focus has 0 rwhp unless were talking a v8 swapped one.

located in Florida... sea level at least. I hate where I live. 5950 feet above sea level. so much power loss.

You don't necessarily have to believe it, that's your choice. My car put 144hp in OEM configuration. Most all OEM graphs have been showing high 130's/low 140's,

If worse comes to worst, then you can always go and put your car on the dyno[dunno]

Seems pretty standard fair. FWD typically has lower drivetrain loss than RWD and with the new DCT transmission, the drivetrain loss is less than a traditional automatic.

The engines are rated 160hp, dynos show 140+
My engine is rated 143hp and dynos show about 120 so.. yeah seems about right on the mark to me.

[goofydrunk]And overrated by 12 ft lbs of torque.
