among what you and Jim are saying here is a very important point:

where class rules put a severe limitation on the amount of power you can
make (as in NHRA Pro Stock, and SCTA Production-- and like Jack's 50cc
'liner)-- you may be FORCED to work way "to the right of the decimal point",
because it's so hard to get an edge on the competition.

At around 2.5 hp per inch they are pretty tame stuff sorry to say.. About
same amount of power as an average twin turbo 3 liter.. They are working so
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
the engine is down 6 hp they don't run it or better yet how would they
it when it is the accuracy of the equipment used to do the measuring??
