I'm sure it's KW's I aksed him for some advice a while ago - and it was '1 MW' (1000Kws) he was heading for at that time.

I couldnt read if the number in the movie is kw or bhp but kw is even more horrific

Kw...

it's in kw, that dino he uses shows kw.
...Which means he's pulling (roughly) 1150 hp... 1500rpm below what his engine will take... at a lower boost than what he's allready tested the engine at.

According to a post of his in "skylines down under", at full boost the car continuously spins all four wheels on that dino so they're not sure what power is it putting out.

However he says that at full boost it's burning more fuel/air than he was hoping for when he speced the engine... and we know he speced the engine to run it against hks's 1500 hp monster...

METRIC SYSTEM YES YES YES

Like to see people discuss matters in METRIC units instead of these old-fashioned used-by-nobody-except-islanders-and-usedtobeenglishUSpeople Queen's units......:D :D

Now. In case you wonder ... what's next: the answer is EURO instead of Great Britain Pound !!! ;)

somberg,

I agree with you completely, it sucks being in the U.S.

I still don't know how heavy an ounce is, how long is a yard......it is a bunch of B.S...........

I kind of like the unit horsepower though, it sounds cooler then KW :p
