"The 45rfe has more then 1.1 for each gear. I was trying too find ratio's, but could not. Reason i wanted too find this is cause meshing of gears accounts for loss also. I think manufacturers should start putting Flywheel ratings, and HP ratings from factory."
The tranny has to have a 1:1 or pretty close gear ratio.
Depending on the tranny, it maybe 3rd, 4th, or 5th gears.
If you have a 4 speed auto, where the overdrive is 4th, then 3rd gear is going to be your 1:1 gear or pretty close to 1:1... if it's a 4 speed +o/d, the 4th gear will be your 1:1.... etc, etc, etc.
Also, the numbers that manufacturers advertise is the wheel or crank hp.
And most of them due list hp ratings. This is usually easy information to find along with the gear ratios.
And one final thing, again, I don't doubt he ran those numbers, but I don't believe that he ran them on the mod's he says he did and I don't believe his dyno results and we have proved the numbers don't add up.
But how can you say that you know he didn't have any mods other than what he said? You don't know what fuel he had in the tank. Methanol is VERY easy to put in a tank and will produce some nice numbers and it's not traceable unless a fuel check is done. It's REALLY easy to hide stuff that is done to a vehicle for an average person not to catch it. Hell, many times, NHRA & IHRA techs don't catch stuff.
The point we had was that he lied about his Hp gains and he was flat out caught in that lie. And arrogantly disputes that he lied when confronted with un-deniable evidence, especially by a couple of experts. Not only that, he gets in to childish name calling.
My question is, why does he care so much that people believe him?
If I told someone my truck ran 12's and they BS'd me about it, I really wouldn't care... take it to the strip, if they don't wanna race, the hell with them... I'm not going to argue for 2 weeks with them about it.
