These would be whp figures right? So just to see if my math is right, if we assume 15% drivetrain loss (as Dinan calculates), 338whp would translate to around 398bhp?

Algebra was a long time ago, but I calculated:

338whp = bhp(.85) -> 85% being bhp minus 15%
338/.85 = bhp -> divide both sides by .85
397.65 = bhp right? or am I off my rocker?
