Based on your logic. No stock 2012 owner can say they have a 160hp car, unless they have the engine put on an engine dyno. Assuming the motor makes the SAE certified numbers, isn't a poor assumption I don't believe. At the very least its a conservative one.
Ford has recently been in the business of under rating the engine packages... for whatever reason. Maybe they are still feeling the ill effects of overratting the 1999 cobra... who knows.

You're playing dumb, you refuse to recognize that Ford's numbers are obviously deflated. If you actually can't accept that, that means you opening believe this platform only suffers a 7.5% drivetrain loss.

Those are really your only two options. Do we know the exact engine hp? No we don't, but as Tbone was trying to point out to you, FocusBoys number were no more or less accurate to the real world than yours. You were faulting someone and your reason was just as flawed.
