I would assume since this was taken from a book on the introduction to the engine that the engine ratings are taken from the crank. I have never heard of a car manufacturer rating their horsepower at the wheels. Now somebody can prove me wrong by putting a stock GTI on a dyno and posting the numbers. That would be fine with me if you can prove that my stock car has those numbers at the wheels.DrJones said:Thanks for the info, but it doesn't really solve anything.
The discussion is regarding whether or no that 200/207 rating is at the wheels or at the crank.
And it doesn't say what octane fuel it made those ratings with...

It was taken from the 2.0 FSI training book that VW gives their tech's. I guess I'm not sure where you are having difficulty grasping the concept of this not being "hard data". ???DrJones said:You're right, but just about everything you said is extrapolated from the data on that sheet and assumptions
