I have been interested in the topic for ĺ couple of decades, and it is my own ballpark figures based on reading a lot about it and seeing quite a few measurements.

I also used to make my own software for dyno testing, and we had a lot of tests to calibrate against other measurements.

But in the end, it is a bit of guessing involved. I agree that wheel power counts, and it is my opinion that this is what the car manufacturers should specify, not crank power.
