Don't make a big deal out of it. EVERYONE advertises that way..and it is NOT false advertising. The engine does make 323 horsepower, but by the time the power makes it to the wheels, it has lost roughly 20% power because of the drivetrain.

Sure, so its only 250 or 260 at the wheels, but just think about other cars on the road. Hell, my Ford ranger with the little 3.0 V6 only makes 160 horse...so I'm probably only getting 125 or so to the wheels.
