Can you feel the +50 HP? How many miles do you have the car at the new tune?

Given the calabration of the HP baseline is lower than the reported 580, is the increase of +57 HP actually a greater number?

yes 57 horsepower at the wheels is about 65 HP at the engine so it is making more like 645 HP now.

Wow, that appears to be around a -23% driveline(baseline dyno/stock) loss.......... is that about the "norm" transmitting from crank to rear wheels ???

I was thinking that at first because mine came in at 443rwhp and after letting it cool it dyno'd at 483rwhp so that sounds about right. I've heard numbers anywhere from 440 to 500 rwhp it just depends on the conditions and type of dyno.

Interesting that there are such large variances in HP ratings when it comes to different Dyno setups.. If it was me, I would base-line the car at the dragstrip and see what the best times you could get, add your mods then do some runs again.....See what the added parts actually did, forget about the numbers on the dyno,,,,, real world results are what you wanna see....

That is the plan. I am waiting for a "run what you brung" night here in Phx. To come up. Plus I made a deal with the owner of Performance Motor Sports to get me some track time if I let him drive it too.

The numbers look to good...did you test under the same conditions? I would say it,s almost impossible to get 65hp with a tuning and cai alone, based on what everyone else tested, especially when you,re only using 91 octane fuel. If it was this easy and cheap, GM would have done it at the factory. I don,t mean to bash this but it Looks like the dyno runs were done on different days. It,s like statistics...it depends on how you look at it. Probably the 448 was done with a hot engine and the 505 with a cold engine. There,s 30hp lost just because of that. There,s no way this car loses 25%power from the engine to the wheels. Again, the numbers look too good/bad to be true. I,just trying to be realistic. If airaid can prove those numbers I,all buy one right away. Also do you have a manual or automatic?
Thanks and I regret if I upset anyone...I,m just trying to be realistic

auto can lose 20-25%, stick 12-15.

gm doesn't do it for noise, nvh reasons, etc. the engineers design something cool then all the other depts from accounting to the EPA dumb it down.

The first day we did the stock run and then spent all day perfecting the tune with IPF as they dialed in thier tune for max benefit, which is a new product for them to sell now that they have the file. then we put the Araid on that day and ran many runs finally at the end of the day we had increase HP significantly like 65 HP, but we're running lean and it affected TQ, we didnt do anything the next day so I took it back the day after and it's was an even worse day weather wise, like 114 in the shade and extremely humid for Az and even so, those were the final #s take it or leave it, I'm not selling anything here, I just posted my results so other ZL1 owners could expect to get if they did this and then they wouldn't care if a GT500 pulled up next to them. That's all I've worried about since I got my ZL1, is racing the snake in a straight line.

OK, thanks. I guess the other tuners/producers are having a bad day then...the most they came up with with just the CAI and tune was around 40hp.
Wow...what a difference! Thanks for sharing and excuse my probing questions.

Btw. You can hit the snake with a stick before you take off, if you,re worried about it...

Hello Mr.R,

All the tests were done at an outside facility, there is nothing for "AIRAID" to prove. Check out the Dyno sheet that was posted above.

The ZL1 systems are available for order now!

Thanks,
David

12-15% has been more typical on other cars with auto.

I'd be interested in know what gains if any with just the intake without tune.

Hello SlingShot,

The AIRAID was designed to Require Custom Tuning, so no gains to report w/o Tuning.

Thanks,
David
