At around 2.5 hp per inch they are pretty tame stuff sorry to say.. About the
same amount of power as an average twin turbo 3 liter.. They are working so far
to right of the decimal point I don't believe they can measure the results
anymore. A good dyno is +- 1/2 percent in power readings.  Do you think the
alternator uses 12.5 hp? or to split the difference at 6.25 hp do you think if
the engine is down 6 hp they don't run it or better yet how would they measure
it when it is the accuracy of the equipment used to do the measuring??
