Horsepower ratings exaggerated
Bear in mind that the transmissions in these trucks have more of a parasitic loss than the ones you'll find in cars. That 5.3l number does sound mighty low, though. Rear wheel HP for the 6.8l Ford V10 was recently measured at 170 (against an advertised 275) but that was on a motorhome chassis with HD transmission, rear end, etc.
