    Hi Guys
    Ive seen quite a few people posting on here that a good equation for a base GPM is HP x .0053 = GPM.
    What is everyones thoughts on this?

    I have several engines that I know the horsepower on and a couple have been on the dyno and that computation does not work for me

    Thanks for your reply, when you say it doesn't work is it too much fuel or not enough?

    Is it in the ballpark or way too much?
