325i rwhp

i couldve sworn i read somewhere the power of the 325i at the wheels was 167hp, but maybe that was at the crank. if so, what is the horsepower of the e30 325i at the wheels? someone told me the 167 was at the crank and that the car lost like 20% power through the drivetrain and that the car really only had like 130hp, which i had trouble believing because it sure doesnt feel like 130, if you get me .

yes thats crank hp, and cars seem to dyno around 130. it might feel fast to you because these cars are fairly light. it still feels slow as hell to me, but everyone's perception is different.
