The easiest unit to relate driveline to is torque.

I don't know why the industry chose horsepower for internals and this decision far out-dates me. I blame old school hot rodders or that fact that 'horsepower sells cars' (or parts).

I'd prefer to keep it as BMEP and then forces (mass and acceleration).

A quick read on BMEP
