What was the elevation where you dyno'd?

I remember taking my E60 M5 to Denver from San Antonio. Between the crappy gas and elevation increase the car felt like it was down 100 hp....

Yup drivetrain loss plus 5280 ft above sea level is about a 25% loss total when putting it down at the wheels.

If I remember right it's approximately 3% loss for every thousand ft up. 3 % of 400 is 12 x 5 = upto 60 hp loss give or take.
