Dyno hp losses...how much

Ok, thinking about getting a few passes on a chassis dyno on Friday. how much drivetrain loss should I expect with drag radials, a PG w/ a 4200 stall and a 3.73 geared 8.8?

Air up your drag radials as high as you can, it will give you a more accurate reading. I've been told 20% to 25%

Be sure and tune to the Air Fuel meter if available. Mine is dead on now!

Good Luck!!

not sure yet. I might get it dyno'd on friday and then do t&t on Sat at northeast. I finally got it out of the garage tonight under it's own power, just got several odds and ends to deal with and then I'm good to go (good thing I'm off Friday) :lol:
