DIN vs SAE HP ratings

Post by Marc » Sun Jan 13, 2008 7:46 am

To figure Horsepower ratings from the European DIN ratings ,add 15% to get SAE ratings.
Example: Fiat Abarth 124 Rally Stradale 1756cc engine was rated at 128 hp DIN.Add 15% you get 147.2 SAE rated HP.
There are alot of misprinted and various HP ratings for our engines in literature out there.I have Fiat literature that rates the HP on the 124 Abarth as 128hp DIN,although I have seen the same no#s qouted in SAE.
