    Depending on what company but you will have most companies claim to the wheels. If its a wet system you can get close to that amount usually dry systems are a bit harder to achieve the claims. On my Wet system with a 125 Shot went i went from 289RWHP to 392RWHP on my 93Z, so about 103 RWHP and this was with a really bad A/F ratio i remember backing off on the fuel just a bit and gained 18RWHP and thats just adjusting it at the regulator. I only got 3 runs and wasnt able to fine tune it at all but if i had a bit more time im sure i couldve gotten alot better.

    I've seen a 100 shot put right at 100 to the wheels... so I'd assume you could get 150hp out of a 150 shot with a good tune

    Depends on the mfg. Some rate it at the wheels and others at the crank. Usually if its at the wheels they will state so.

    I usally never go by the recommendation or their estimated hp. I would rather compare the actual jet size.

    YES

    Yes NX #'s are RWHP.
    Most of the other company's are giving you a flywheel #.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    I'm hitting 150wet and pick up 13mph in the 1/4. Sounds like 150rwhp to me.
    My old dry kit hit 125hp and picked up 80rwhp on dyno and 8mph in1 /4.
    I'm liking the wet kit....
