    Yeah, I believe that is what they are called. The stock 1997 wheels. Where are you at as I doubt they are really worth shipping.

    Thanks. Glad it's higher than expected. It is what it is, but being an engineering type gear-head I like to compare it to what is out there today. Such as the new 5.0L Ford Mustang Boss engine at 444HP.

    Hi Fla Steve, the 370 rating was DIN. I dont rememeber the exact specifics of the correction factors and testing conditions, but I DO remember that the anciliaries such as alternator and power steering pumps were replaced by idlers. A rough conversion that seems to work is that SAE is 98% of DIN rated horse power. The EEC rating is even lower!
    SO 370 Bhp was DIN, 363 Bhp was SAE, for the AJ33 400 Bhp was DIN, 387 bhp was EEC and SAE was about 391 Bhp.
    You see a similar story for Porsches- the 993 Turbo from 1995 was rated at 408 Bhp DIN, and 400 Bhp SAE! This is a far cry from the highly optimistic SAE figures from the late 60s
