Realistic

In case you didn't know, you'll lose anywhere from 18 into 25 % of your horsepower between the flywheel and the rear wheels. The higher percentage loss is probably more realistic. Most of the dyno horsepower numbers are with no alternator or other accessories and an electric water pump. Some, if not all, are without mufflers either.
