The "claimed" 390 ponies is crank.

Yes, several have dynoed their trucks and I'm sure they'll chime in upon discovering this thread.

There are TONS of variables, but I've always been taught that there's app. 15-20 percent loss/change of HP from crank to the wheels.

Finally, there's really no need to post multiple threads asking the same questions on various sections of the boards. Most members use the "New Posts" button so, believe me, one time only and your thread will be viewed by MANY.

Cheers.

308whp/332ftrq on my truck dynoed back a couple months ago when it only had 350 miles on it.

390 is at the crank. Most see 300ish to the wheels stock.

HP rating is at the crank.
Figure about 20% drivetrain loss so about 305-310hp at the wheels....
