There is very little difference between the 2 but it really doesnt matter to me what u want to believe I'm not gonna argue a point when I have Dyno proof..I only posted the numbers to give a real life example of numbers from a car pushing 300000 miles..
That works out to a 4% higher power rating with standard conversion. (roughly) actually possibly closer to 5%. But I'll give the benefit of the doubt at 4%. That means SAE you made 175. That number is alot more reasonable compared to other SAE results. Especially given it was on your best run, and others would have been about 165.
