OK I retrack my post, just keep in mind the LS3 on the Chevy ss makes 415hp which makes the L99 ss less attractive. The 14s will get a bump the 13s DNA will be in them might not be rated from GM.

Sorry but have to at this.

I can see it now:

Me: Do you have an L99 Camaro I can look at?
Saleman: We do. But we also have an overpriced, 4 door sedan, the new SS. It has an LS3 and has 15 more HP then the Camaro. Might not look as good but it does have 15 more HP!
Me: Sold! I'll take the SS

Some people lol...

My dealer told me my SS has 450 HP so it must be true! They added the boddy kit that helps push the weight lower to the ground so it doesnt have to work as hard. Thats why i have 24 HP more then a normal SS.

Believe it or not i have actually been told that before by someone.

Seriously though just because your car dynoed 5 HP more then someone with a 2012 doesnt mean the rating changed from GM.

432hp vs 426hp = + 1.4%. Probably within EPA tolerances and not worth raising a fuss over in the US.

Otherwise could be a different tune since European fuels have higher octane.

While we're on the SS topic, I read that it's an AUTO LS3, without AFM! Is this true? Leave it to the numbskulls at GM to do this to a 4-door "family" sedan, but they cut the balls off the auto Camaro by sticking it with AFM.

I know right lol, But L99 owners are free of gas guzzler tax, as for the SS they get taxed. IDK GM would do this but I like the fact the L99 was offered.

Remind me did they ever change 2010 ratings for the v6? I'm sure they did cause they said they were using the cts ratings if I'm correct
It will never be the same, you can take the same dyno, to Los Angeles and take a reading then move it to Denver on the exact same car and you will get different HP readings. Just like comparing quarter mile times in two different places or even different times of the year. If the conditions are not exactly the same you will get different readings.

Yes the 2010 V6 used the CTS certification rating of 304HP, then ford came up with a rating of 305hp in 2010 on the Mustang V6. So for 2011 GM had the V6 certified in the Camaro and it came out as 312HP with no changes in tuning or the engine.

No they re-certified it when Ford's new V6 in their Mustang was rated higher than the 3.6 GM.
