the 5252 has absolutely no significance. Its just a math forumula. If it bothers you that much just use metric measurements instead of standard.

I'm willing to bet a 160hp engine can't pull 1/3rd what 160 horses could..
if it could you'd snap the chain(most front drive cars) or gear teeth everytime it shifted gears at wot at hp peak..
um... HP is NOT a math formula. Its a very real metric used for measuring power. It was originally defined off of the work a horse could do and is an entirely accurate means of represent the power an engine makes.

But, it's calculated based on ft lbs of torque produced while running. Dynos measure torque, tachs measure rpm. The math gets done. HP is entirely dependanton two variables. The torque being produced, and the engine speed in RPM. It's a math thing.
