No worries man...that's why this forum is great because we can learn a few things from people's experiences and knowledge.
I'm no expert either but I was told that the reason for the difference is that dyno numbers are measured at the wheels. The guy that dyno'd my car told me that the 6-speed manuals lose approx 17% at the wheels in 4th gear. So using this data, 224whp/83% = 270hp based on my dyno.
The publications advertise 240 stock hp for the V6 Accord 6-speed. So 240 x 83% = 199whp stock.
If my math is wrong...someone will correct me I'm sure.
