    How many hp? formula calculator?

    hi...

    every days... someone ask me... how many hp is now my ski...
    I really don't know. some says 300 some says 350...

    no one know a formula for calculate this?

    for example...

    we know:
    -dispacement
    -compression
    -psi

    aren't these paramenters not enough to calculate approximatively hp rated for an engine?

    thanks

    10 HP for every mile you gain, Julio...

    Still a lot of factors that are not taken into account ( bigger intercooler, better intake or exhaust). I would give the hp number you come up with a plus or minus 10 percent.

    Also compression ratio and the fact that a turbocharged motor will output about 50 more HP over a supercharged motor. The formula above doesn't take that into account.

    I've always use 10HP for every mile an hour gained on engine modifications and I have come to the same numbers as a dyno tested motor give or take a few HP, Julio...

    yes ... it's an easy way... to 'calculate'...
    but is affected on the ride plate, the prop size, the nozzle diameter and degree, the pump...

    i think a good setted pump and plate could give 5 mph or more, over a worst setup...
    I think the formula is more accurate....

    I tried some combination...
    and values seems to me correct...

    bigger intercooler, better intake... = more rpm.
    more rpm = more hp.

    Exactly, which is why that hp calculator wouldn't be accurate.

    How come? That HP calculator has inputs for displacement, boost pressure, and RPM.
