The chart is unclear to me. It uses the term "power to shaft", but what shaft is that? If that is wheel power, the number is high.

BHP is best measured directly. Some dynos attempt to estimate BHP from WHP by looking at the dynamic behavior of the car, but that involves a fair amount of guess work. As a result I prefer to see WHP numbers.

Also, I know the 2.0T will reduce power dramatically if the oil temperature gets too high. Controlling engine temperature is difficult on a dyno stand.
The dyno sheet appears to be from a Bapro dyno, which by their own claim is a chassis dyno which measures whp. The confusion can be chalked up to some pretty spotty English. Que sera, sera.
