Default Horsepower - round up/down?

Andy Costello just faxed me the official dyno sheet and the final HP with the Super Sucker carb spacer is 693.9.

What is the appropriate round number? Do I call them 690's or what?

If Stecz can round up to 600 than you can round up too.
700's has a nice ring to anyways.

Well, my 800SC Merc's where about 735 HP(on a good day) and Merc still called them 800's. So you have 700 HP, and a clear conscience.

They would be considered a 675.

You're pretty darn close to 700 hp. I maxed out on the dyno at 716 HP, I call them 720's

we dynoed my power the friday before the storm , with sea pump , altenator , stainless marine exhaust ,basically set up the way it will be in the boat , she put out 560hp , mark said that if i threw a set of headers and no accesories , the # would be much higher. thank goodness precison didn't get any flood water , haven't been there since the storm either.

soo , i guess i could round up to 575??
