In 1972 they went to "net" horsepower ratings. The engines were rated with the accessories installed and with the additional drag they imposed on the engines. Hated the way it looked at the time, but understood why. Also, Corvette engine information plaques that appeared on the console did not come with horsepower listed as in previous years. Just omitted it because they seemed less appealing.
