The only way you could come close to that assumption is by using somebody's declared hp level compared to the manufacturer's published hp#. That is not a true/fair comparison since you're talking about published hp at the crank and comparing it to rwhp which is what we use. So take my car for example: I'm running an s62 now with a published hp of 394, but in actuality puts down more like 330-340whp (from the factory). I ran my car at 296whp this past year, which would mean I detuned the car 13% (using 340 as the starting point). That is hardly an extreme detune, but if I had to guess I'd say that a car like mine is one that is being targeted. Point is, stop distorting things by saying people are detuning 40-50%! I'm not sure if that would even be possible if you're comparing apples to apples (factory whp to declared whp). This whole discussion is just crap!
