Re: 4.8L Performance upgrade options

Instead of 0-100 and 0-80 acceleration runs, consider doing in-gear acceleration runs, second or third gear.

So, to sum up: As stated before, because power is a function of torque and speed, any two engines that produce the same torque at the same RPM will also produce the same power at that same speed (RPM). But that only applies at that specefic RPM. Also, there are many factors that affect the accuracy ...
