Solving for the change or increase in engine or motor horsepower performance using the ET method.
change or increase in engine or motor horsepower performance using the ET method
This method uses the elapsed time needed to complete a quarter mile run. It is used to give an estimate of vehicle(car, truck, motorcycle) engine horsepower. Weight should include the mass of the vehicle, driver and passenger. Times will need to be measured before and after performance or after market parts have been installed.


vehicle weight
quarter mile time before modification(ET1)
quarter mile time after modification(ET2)


weight = 0    = 0  pound
time1 = 0    = 0  second
time2 = 0    = 0  second
