I didn't bother watching the video. You see on Camaro on a dyno, you've seen 100. Nice car tho!
Good then don't ask. It wasn't only him. I've know some of them to troll on other threads before. Sorry, but I don't wear panties probably like you do. Sorry if I'm being a ass today. Sometime these people post up stupid sh!t and it gets to me.

if that is a 18-20 percent loss it is putting down around 600-615 at the crank? Not sure if I am right about that.. but......

512 to the wheels sounds about right for a car rated at 580 at the crank. Congrats!

That's over 600 at the crank!!!

Don't take it personal. Wasn't directing it just at you. Obviously we get opinions from people who don't even watch the video.

I wouldve thought 15% for a manual trans car.

Always thought that the manuals on the Camaro averaged to around 18 percent.. could be different on the ZL1

This same car is suppose to get dynoed at another shop tomorrow. Will be interesting to see what it reads there. It's always said a dyno is a tool. Some will show different numbers. It was cool to at least see a ZL1 on a dyno.

It could be. I thought 15%. Never heard a definite number of the LS3 drivetrain loss.

Based on all the information we've seen so far, drivetrain loss for the ZL1 seems to be around 12-13% for the manual and 17-18% for the auto. That's right in line with what I would have expected based on the plethora of CTS-V dyno pulls that I've witnessed over the past couple of years, all on the same DynoJet.

Well if those chumps were leaning on my BRAND NEW ZL1 I'd be looking to kick some ass. You can tell Alex I said so. At the very least they should have used fender covers.

Nice Numbers, I was curious what one of these would dyno on a Dyno Pack setup since that is what i dynoed my truck on as well. No skewed numbers due to tire inflation or slippage. Also no worrying about straps etc

Fender covers or sheets wouldve been nice, no doubt about it. If it gets damaged from a tee shirt leaning in it I would be pissed too. I know it's not gonna be a garage queen so it will eventually see some nicks and scratches.

You don't understand because your not a cali bad-ass. Just read the thread, post nothing, and thank your lucky stars you were fortunate enough for it to be posted in the first place.

Hugo, start a new one for CMS and post it in the Cali section. Ask the mods please don't move it, so there will be less people nit picking every little thing.

Inferno! Thank you for taking the time to post! We ZL1 fanatics can't get enough! Imagine... +500 HP to the rear wheels of a factory production cruiser. GM sure did a good job on this car. In ALL respects!

I'd like to know... do most dealers offer "tuning" similar to this and keeping the car within warranty specs? I'd like to have mine done by a dealer and keep all the numbers within factory specs! Just MAX out factory so warranty stays intact. Is that doABLE?

Your welcome very much. I personally think the ZL1 is amazing. I'm sure GM is losing money on every one they sell. There is way more 15K in this over a stock SS. Everything is better on this car.

I was there and thats how it happen. Its because the car only have 250 miles on and it its not broken in. So the more harder you run it the more it brakes in. Thats why the number changes.

I took the video and posted it in behalf of Alex. If you lame asses wanna question everything then you should've showed up. I'm not a expert and unless you are keep your opinions to yourself. Thank you very, I don't care if you have a good or bad day.
Jason, that was a bit too strong. lol
