  1. 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.

  3. well how about instead of everyone just sayin no - post up what number you think the car is capable of??
  4. no U!
  5. Somewhere in the 1 to 500 horse range :shrug:
  6. 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:
