This is a kind of misleading statement. They may not have been displaying the torque, but it's not possible to not "do" or measure torque.

Horsepower is technically not "measurable". It is a mathematical representation of torque, with respect to time.

All dynos measure torque, and then use a calculation to determine horsepower.

Congrats on the new numbers... can't wait to hear how it "feels" on the butt dyno, and/or in front of a sled.
