My mistake, I was using the 318 HP for that number. It's actually 1166 ft/lbs at 1500 rpm.
Max Power (P) = 333
RPM (R) = 1500
T = P / ( R / 5252 )
Torque (T) = 1166
That's the derivation of the Power equation of HP = Torque x ( RPM / 5252 ).
Is my engine power governed

So the governed hp is correct at 333

Horse power is rated as brake horse power which is the horse power created by the engine against a source that creates a force to consume power.
His engine is rated for 475, it is limited to that. The dealer can bump that up if he pays for it.
The ecm has the peak torque set at 1240 rpm which is also the sweet spot or near it. 
Is the governed horsepower of 333 the actual horsepower I'm receiving?


All of the ratings say BHP though.
What engine is this?
