Theres a difference between hp and whp, if your truck is rated at a certain hp say 345, 345hp is what its rated at the crank, basically how powerfull your motor is, Now whp is how much hp your truck has after it gets to the wheels (WHEEL HORSE POWER) Sense you loose power through your drive train they have a rating for this as well, if you have 345 at the crank (HP) then your looking at about 290 at the wheels (WHP) correct me if im wrong senior members.
