If you believe the claimed power, then my car lost 17% when dynoed in 4th gear. 234fwhp with 274hp rated at the engine. This will also change per gear. Typically the closest to 1:1 gear will provide the least amount of drivetrain loss and therefore the highest power values.

Ok... Gotcha. So safe to say 15%
282whp and 324wtq are good reason why the K5GT needs good sticky tires.
