A few months ago, I wrote a story in SCC describing how these rules of thumbs can "disproven" by nothing more than reducing BSFC and increasing max. desired duty cycle. Both variables are multipliers so small tweaks impact calculated hp levels dramatically. This was described quite comprehensively in a number of my SCC project stories (Miata, 2.5RS and RX-7).

Now quite misquoting me
