The first thing every car owner should do, is to go and take a look at their owner’s manual that came with the car. The car is going to have a book issues with it, which is going to have the horsepower listed down in the specifications section of that book.
Before you spend any time doing anything else, this is the first thing you should look into, in order to save yourself time and make your life easier.
In case you have gone on to lose your owner’s manual, which most people tend to do after a specific amount of time, an alternative way to going about finding out the horsepower of your car is to use the internet.
Other people with the same car and the same model of the car will most probably posted the horsepower that your car is capable of producing. So doing a simple internet search should help you get your answer rather easily.
The next way to find the horsepower of your car, and to get a more accurate rating of your cars horsepower is to use the dynamometer.
The dynamometer is a device, which has been specifically created to measure the horsepower on cars. The instrument works with a load being placed on the engine, and then pushing the engine to its limits. This allows the car to give you its maximum and minimum statistics.
