You'd be no where near 200whp on a dyno. The HP ratings that the factory gives is at the motor, not the wheels. Also too, you can just add up numbers for every mod you do. That's called ricer math. Sure, you might see 5 HP from a CAI and 10 HP from a tune, but that doesn't automatically add 15 HP to the motor. Because of the tune, you might not see 5 more HP from the CAI, or, you might see more. The only way to tell is get the car on the dyno.
An remember, your WHP is always going to be lower than BHP due to power loss in the other moving parts (trans, axle, wheel size or weight, gear size, ect.).
So tell your buddies that you don't know what the car is "pushing", and if they want to know that bad, pitch in for a dyno run.
