PS to HP

Postby » Tue May 25, 2004 11:50 pm

I am trying to measure the difference between Japanese PS and American HP. I have a found a couple different measurements, but am not sure if the conversion is correct.

Thank you for your help.

All I know is that german PS and HP is the same, PS is short for "PferdStärke" which translates Pferd=Horse and Stärke=Strength.

Maybe the Japanese is something similar?

According to this page, "1.0 Japanese PS = 0.98632 BHP".
