Exactly.They did lie a lot about the HP back in the day just to keep the insurance companies happy. A good example of this was the Ford 428SCJ that they put in the Mach 1. Ford was claiming it was 335bhp when the 390 four barrel was 330bhp.The dyno tests were like 446bhp in stock build but that was a mess shoehorning a big block in a Mustang. They had to move the shock towers and beef the suspension up.
I bet you miss that Ram Air GTO.
