Question about v6 horsepower..and another

First Question..
I know that v6 stangs have 165 hp or close to that, but since we're rated at 193hp, does that mean thats the same for everyother car out there. Example, Civic Si's are rated at 160 hp, does that mean they really have 140-145 hp?

Second question
Does having a T-Lock 'unlock' more horsepower?

Answer 1: Yes. BHP (at the engine) vs RWHP (at the wheels)

Answer 2: It tranfers the power to both wheels vs the open differential the V6 has that applies it to only one.

99-00 have 190@5250 hp and 225tq@2750 at the flywheel
01-04 have 193@5500 hp and 225tq@2750 at the flywheel

94-98 have 150@4800~hp and 220tq@2750~ at the flywheel (some years varied a bit)

manuals will loose 17.5% in the drive train (to the rear wheels)
autos will loose 22-25% in the drive train (to the rear wheels)

thus.... if you have a manual expect 160rwhp stock for 99+~ if you have an auto... 145-150....~

you could, but the car would only be good for a sideshow attraction.
