Track Horsepower vs. Engine Dyno

2686 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  sled-head
I hear alot of people talking about "Horsepower". This is all focused on the engine output. I agree - engine output is the initial means of measuring the power. However, you aren't going to move to fast unless the track HP is up as well.
What I want to know the track horsepower. Does anybody have this information? OR is anyone going to get this done? (Don't suprised if you lose around 50% of "Engine Output" to the track)

Thanks alot.

Try to contact Goodwin Performance, I know that they have had a F7 on the Dyno, He has both dyno's (TRACK and ENGINE) I am not sure which one they have tested it on. I had my sled there as a TEST MACHINE, but mine was not the one on the dyno. I have had past machines on his chassis dyno and yes, you can bank on about a 50-55% avg of max power transfer. Although, keep in mind that you don't swing a leg over and ride the dyno, it is only a tool, nothing more. Field testing is what backs up the dyno results. I must say if anybody can tune a clutch system by seat of the pants, its Greg Goodwin.
