17.95% drivetrain power loss then. Assuming 470Hp in ideal conditions. Interesting.

I corrected the number. I didn't add the tenths first time around. Basically the 6.4 is supposed to make 470Hp Chrysler tells us. So [1- (385.6/470)] * 100 yields how much power was lost from the crank to the wheels.

Possibly trying to low ball it to make his end result seem greater??

Wouldn't it be helpful to know the Dyno and weather conditions (DA) when dynoed? Does that make a difference?

Why would you guys say it looks low ? That's dead on to what Chrysler says it should be and the performance numbers so far dont back up any sort of under-rating.

got a little squirrely on the dyno :eek:

I dont think a vid of that thing walking off the dyno would make it online
That's nothing. You should have been at the AWD dyno when we did mine the first time on 8psi. Dwight had to do a little driving on the dyno to keep it straight.:eek:

There's more driveline loss if the engine has to spin the front half, AND, the back half. You will always read higher numbers on a RWD dyno.
