For those who aren't familiar with the metric (superior) system of measurements.

W = Watts (yea, like a light bulb)

220kW = 220,000W

1hp = 746 Watts

220,000/746 = 295hp

Good Luck!

Somehow comparing engine output to 2,200 lightbulbs just isn't as visceral or as exciting as comparing it to 295 charging horses. Horses win hands down every time.

Well, in the metric system water freezes at 0 celcius and boils at 100 c. Tell me how the Farenheight system makes sense? Do you even know where water freezes and boils? You'd be surprised at the number of people who don't.

One cubic centimeter (milliliter) of water has a mass of one gram. 1000 cubic centimeters (one liter) has a mass of one kilogram.

There is only one base unit of length (meter), one base unit of volume (liter), and one base unit of mass (gram).

To these you add a system of prefixes that are all multiples of '10'... which makes for easy calculations.

milli 1/1000
centi 1/100
deci 1/10
--- base unit
Deca 10
hecto 100
kilo 1000

A millimeter is 1/1000 of a meter.
A kilometer is 1000 meters.

Converting between units is simply a matter of moving the decimal.

You ever try and convert between inches and miles? How about cups to gallons? Teaspoons to cups? pints to tablespoons? Conversions are a PITA with american units. With metric units, they all use the same prefixes, and any conversions simply require one to move the decimal place to the left or right.

Since it's all based on powers of 10, Conversion between units is WAY easier with the metric system. If you do many conversions and calculations (like I do), the american system will drive you nuts.

Good Luck!

Oh, is that flywheel, or rearwheel horsepower?

still think hp sounds better and is much more identifiable than flurry of light bulbs. besides, its 212f boil and 32f at freezing and if its that hard to remember you probably went to a crappy public school. hey, but they had a better ball team right? see, gotta have your priorities.

not downing the metric system, just downing the downers of anything described as "american". basically would like to say europe is really on my list right now. they might be down with the metric system but they sure suck on every other point. maybe the dollar will be obsolete someday because the euro is so much easier and versatile. maybe we'll follow to the beat their socialist government drums and limp wristed policies toward terrorism in israel and a million other Godless things. its a shame what europe becomes daily, a whore. the countries that were great allies there in WW II are going to Hell. tired of hearing liberal americans praise europe for any reason. got a little too much garbage off N.P.R. today i guess.

Nice dyno numbers...
Here in Canada we switched to the Metric system in the late seventies. In some ways I have switched and others not. When driving to America you go down a highway at 110 km/h, cross the border and the signs say '60' and you wonder why everyones passing you... Also its still much more impressive when you catch a "33 pound" salmon, nobody says they caught a "16 kilogram" salmon! It sucks when half of your Ford has metric bolts and half are imperial. By the way, do you guys in the States cc your heads or ci your heads?

I guess when it comes down to the imperial vs. metric debate you've gotta ask yourself the biggest question of all...
Is it more impressive to say I've got 8 inches or 20 centimeters?
