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

That's over 600 at the crank!!!

At least someone got it.
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.
