Bottom line:

There are about a hundred different ways to manipulate the outcome, making numbers look favorable toward one manufacturer or another (and they ALL use these tricks), so it`s really hard to tell who`s stretching the truth (so we have to assume they ALL are )
Let`s face it....they`re all in it to make money, and it`s a tough market, so they`re gonna pitch it as hard as they can.

IMHO, quarter-mile times are one of the best barometers for judging engine performance....trap speeds are a great way of determining a car`s real-world horsepower.

So, to me, having a Dyno pull, backed up by a quarter-mile run, would provide more concrete evidence than anything that`s been presented so far....
