    My buddy just bought a 93 lx hatch 5 spd. and he was wondering how much hp to expect out of it when he throws it on the dyno and gets it tuned.. I was figuring around 275-290 to the wheels but I think I may be a little high on my est. so I was wantin to get your guys input.

    116k miles on car ~16k on motor and tranny,

    All joking aside, my estimate would be about the same as yours. The best advise I could give about HP estimates is estimate LOW or don't do it at all.

    That way when you do throw it up on the dyno, you don't end up disappointed. :shrug:
