haha I think you might be losing this one jjrdw.

I love cars but my financial situation has prevented me from any serious tinkering or modding. My baby though is a 2005 Ford Expedition NBX. It's not built for speed, but it is a tank and can still haul ass even at being 6500lbs. Blessed 3 valve 5.4L V8.

I'm hoping to gift it a front (Ranch Hand) and rear (WAAG) grill guard, new exhaust, and a cold air intake over the summer. Its just begging for it.

It's a blown 327 making around 450 horse power on cam2 gas. I was to the floor trying to keep up with him a time or two, I could still hear his tires squeeling at about 70 mph as far in front of me as he was.

His tires are 32"s wide and 32"s high and can't get traction even at 70mph. He has to run Hoosiers(sp) wrinkle walls at the track and still has problems finding traction. Thats why I named that video clip what I did.

Wikipedia:
Mechanical horsepower
See History of the term "horsepower"
The term "horsepower" was coined by the engineer James Watt in 1782 while working in the performance of steam engines. This occurred while using a mine pony to lift coal out of a coal mine. He conceived the idea of defining the power exerted by these animals to accomplish this work. He found that, on the average, a mine pony could pull (lift by means of a pulley) 22,000 foot-pounds per minute. Rather than call this "pony" power, he may have increased these test results by 50 percent, and called it horsepower i.e. 33,000 foot-pounds of work per minute.

Assuming the third CGPM (1901, CR 70) definition of standard gravity, g, and the international avoirdupois pound (1958), one mechanical horsepower is:

1 hp ≡ 33,000 ft·lbf/min by definition
= 550 ft·lbf/s since 1 min = 60 s
= 550 × 0.3048 × 0.45359237 m·kgf/s since 1 ft = 0.3048 m and
= 76.0402249068 kgf·m/s 1 lb = 0.45359237 kg
= 76.0402249068 × 9.80665 kg·m²/s³ g = 9.80665 m/s²
= 745.69 W since 1 W ≡ 1 J/s = 1 N·m/s = 1 (kg·m/s²)·(m/s)

Or given that 1 hp = 550 ft·lbf/s, 1 ft = 0.3048 m, 1 lb = 4.448 N, 1 J = 1 N·m, 1 W = 1 J/s: 1 hp = 746 W

cross multiply and cancel out:

550 ft-lb/s 0.3048 m 4.448 N 1 J 1 W
1 hp 1 ft 1 lb 1 N-m 1 J/s

= 745.66272 W or 746 W
