Default How much horsepower am I pushing?

I have a B18B1 on a 95 integra with a vtec conversion

I know the non vtec has 142 hp

The vtec conversion has 195 hp. And it depends on what kind of turbo you get. If you get a decent turbo you could be pushing 215hp or more. That will make you car a whole lot faster.

one liter of fuel/hr is abt 4.4bhp/hr. So if you know how much fuel you're using, you know how much power you should be producing.

4.4L=1 imp Gall=5/4US Gall, near enough. most common fuels are sufficiently similar for the approximations to work well enough.

No possible way to answer this as there are numerous factors. The non-vtec makes between 117-120 whp on the dyno, and a CORRECTLY built LS/VTEC with the common bolt on parts, intake,exhaust, and header will put down between 150-175 hp at the wheels.
