"British" horsepower? Bhp stands for Brake Horsepower. In a nutshell
brake horsepower is what the engine produces at the crankshaft on a dyno
, SAE is what you get when the engine is in the car with all the
accessories attached and using stock air cleaner and stock exhaust system.

Actually, SAE is the measurements according the procedures by the Society
for Automotive Engineers.

It has nothing to do with accessories.

However, cars are normally rated as SAE Gross and SAE Net. The SAE Gross is
the old style ratings from 1971 and back where they rated the bare engine
without accessories and exhaust configurations were often optimal.

SAE Net is from 1971 to present where the engine is configured as in the
base driven configuration which usually means alternators and all standard
accessories, like AC and power steering after certain years, and with
realistic exhaust systems.

====================
That is until you actually drive them.... LOL

Honestly the older cars feel much stronger then the new cars and a lot
of that has to do with just how primitive the old suspensions were ..

Given the choice ...for fun...I'll hop into a 60 muscle car every
single time.. for a 200 mile drive I'll take the newer car...
