1. Wheel horsepower
The power of a vehicle's engine mesured ''at the wheel'', instead of ''at the crank'', so, after drivetrain losses are applied.
Mesured by a dyno.
What should be considered as the ''real'' power of a car.
2. Wish horsepower
Take on the acronym to describe a purely cosmetic modification on a car.
My engine make 106hp, at the wheel there is 89hp, so i have 89whp.
