    What about the possibility of the Turbo or Supercharger on the 3.0?

    327 AWD at the wheels, but were tracking down misfire.......still 327 with the AWD 20% parasitic drivetrain loss is 392 at the flywheel estimate from 312 is not bad.

    So from 312 to 392 at the flywheel? Ideas on stock hp at the wheels? That same 20% would be what? 240 or 250?

    With an AWD your looking at app 20% drivetrain loss....so take say 312 stock FWHP x.8 = 249.6.

    This is a ruff estimate, but not far off. A 2wd auto trans is app 15% parasitic loss, add a higher stall converter unlocked and your near 20%.

    Car owners like hard data when deciding which performance upgrades to buy.
