Just FYI, if you do any of the math WRT the below, you will see that what
he's speaking of is RWHP, not flywheel HP.  Which means that his "400hp trim"
was more like 500 at the flywheel, and his 520 target is more like 650 at the
flywheel.  Translated observation:  I haven't seen a "400" trim car on this
list pop that dyno number, regardless of the "correction factor" you choose.
