How much horse power really ?

Ok we all know the ZL1 put out 580 hp and 556 of torque but how much really hits the ground . What is the ZL1 put out at the rear wheels ?

Depends on the day and the dyno. You can usually expect 12-15% parasitic loss on a manual trans and 15-18% on an auto so right around 500 rwhp is what you should realistically expect.

Honestly this topic has been covered so many times I'm not sure I could count or
Go back and find all the threads.
Seems like everyone that makes a purchase goes down this same road.
Sorry if I offended anyone, but damn.

I'm sure it's like being Ina one room school house. First graders with the sixth graders but we all start somewhere. You early owners are like big brother. We newbies mature faster form being around you.

It's true we see these same questions over and over, You are correct though, that's why we have a community like this to help each other out.

I know it's hard to resist just asking for an answer, but I would highly suggest you just search before posting. Not because it's annoying to have the same questions asked, more so because of all the crap you didn't think to ask that's answered in the same thread.

For example...I was curious about common problems with the ZL1. Instead of asking...I not only found problems but a fix for almost every single one of them.

This place is an enormous wealth of knowledge. Enjoy the learning as much as the car

Go to Slohawk Performance in Bridgewater, MA on Saturday (DynoDay) and you'll find out. Wish I could go but gotta work.

Our prestigious statesman has the best answer. Yeah, something like 500 hp depending on the variables. I didn't do one stock. I had already thrown my Rotofab on there with no tune. Hit 515 on the dyno at Vengeance Racing in Cumming, Ga. Don't really know what that means though.

My '13 A6 made 490 rwhp stock, 503 with the Rotofab intake installed. I thought it was a bit high for an auto, but my track numbers seem to back up what I got. Either way, enjoy your ride, you've got yourself one hell of a starting point.
