    To be accurate on a chassis dyno, one needs to pick the gear ratio closest to 1:1.
    This is why I said in my original post "thrust...is something entirely different."

    The engine produces 90hp. It will not produce more, or less, horsepower in a different gear.

    To quote a highly respected member here, "I have no idea, how discussions like this get started and how they morph into something totally different."
