306 what?

What 15 percent rule? Driveline and installation losses in reality can run from 5% if your building F1 quality to nearly 50% for OEM production. This isn’t a miracle that just happens it takes a lot of detail attention to get under 25%, you’ll sweat a lot of engineering blood on that path.

Now for 701 with a 15% loss you multiple 701 times .15 that equals that’s 105.15 which is the lost power that nets out to 595.85 at the tire to roller. Or you can take 100% minus 15% which gets 85% as usual you divide that by 100% (all you can get in percents as in the glass is full) by 85% which equals .85. Multiply .85 times 701 this equals 595.85 which is the power delivered between the tire and roller.

Jgrass, its not 2.2hp/ci its 2.2 hp/cfm air flow through heads N.a. PUMP GAS. Different fuels may make more power and boost/NO2 can make more.
Driveline loss depends on everything in the driveline,lol.

No, jJohnsomgrass1 has it right.....701 hp from 306 cubic inch is 2.29 hp/ci....very hard to do naturally aspirated.

It is just a coincidence it comes close to being the same number as the 2.2 hp/cfm cylinder head potential figure.

Op is long gome anyway, like a fart in the wind ....lol
