Show me the dyno sheet.

I'm not a computer guy but, I don't believe someone sitting at a computer can give an exact horsepower number on a guys engine. There's too many variables to account for.

Take it to a dyno and take the paperwork home. Thats the only way to prove your claim of xxx horsepower.

If a guy estimates his horsepower thats another thing. I take estimates with a grain of salt.

I hear all kinds of fantastic claims of horsepower from people, and actually know my numbers, which are usually lower than theirs. Somehow though, cars with my engines seem to outrun most of those "big number" motors on the track, hmmmm.
I don't even take them with a grain of salt, I just quietly chuckle!
