This engine power calculator will calculate the power of your engine. It will give you the power in KW, BHP & PS. It will also give you the torque in lbs/ft and NM
How to use this power calculator
Find a private road which is long and has a consistent gradient, does not need to be flat, just consistent.
Choose a start speed and end speed of your acceleration run
Record the time it takes the car to accelerate between these speeds
With car out of gear, record the time the car takes to decelerate between these speeds. This time will compensate for wind resistance, wind direction and speed, rolling resistance of tyres and the gradient of the road
What you need to know
You need to know the following info about your car.
Final drive ratio(Google if you don’t know)
The gear ratio of the gear you used in the acceleration run (Google if you don’t know)
Your tyre width, profile and diameter (written on the side of your tyre)
If you are not sure of the weight and/or gear ratio, Google is your friend!This engine horsepower calculator is designed to give you an easy way to calculate the horsepower of your engine just by using a stopwatch and some simple specs of your car.
