No, I can't. But FocusBoy58 was calculating numbers as accurate as yours, and you didn't like his numbers! Why bother calculating equally inaccurate numbers when you know the only accurate numbers come from an engine dyno? Because, after all, that was you point all along, right?

You are assuming that Ford's stated hp is what you would get in an actual test on an engine dyno.
FocusBoy58 was assuming a % parasitic loss.

What makes one assumption more accurate than another?
