yea they underated the 370 hp a bit, I think it has the same crank hp as the new ram or really close to 390hp which is what the new ram has.

We can only hope the LS3 is underated as well, hoping for 450bhp.

especially since it should be the same tune and camshaft, just underrated for marketing sakes.

Can't wait to see actual dyno #'s...

And with adding a couple extra goodies here and there? GMPP will hopefully come through!

WOW; I think those are great numbers. Shoot, my car was making that with a lid, catback, mid-length LTs, and crappy canned tune on 17" wheels and 335-tires (my brother's car put down almost 330/350 RWHP/RWTQ with a lid, catback, and OEM wheels/tires). It's still a pretty big car but I think she could get into the mid-13s stock; bottom 13s on DRs.

I'd like to see SSs put down about 370-380 at the wheel. That would make it pretty close to the 'Vette and would go a long ways to say how efficient that suspension was (from what I gathered, GTO suspensions soaked up a bit more power than a live axle )

well upon my research at gmpowertrain.com i am now not sure, i think the difference is just the tune, which would be loaded when they flash the car the 1st time.....but i cant be sure after reading over the website.

Sounds like we're just going to have to flash the computer with the Vette specs and see what happens!

The SS will be putting down between 385 - 395 HP when it comes out. The vettes have put down anything from 390 to 405 from the hundreds of stock 2008/2009 dynos I have seen.

Since the dyno has nothing to do with weight the only difference would be drivetrane loss in the camaro's linkage vs the vette or worse breathing. Other then that it should put down the same power.

With that said it is over 50 HP more at the wheels then the R/T. It will compete with the SRT8 not the R/T. The R/T will be left in the rear view everytime.

you will probably see it dyno at 375-385 to the wheels and when pricing is finally announced, it will probably be in line with the srt8 not the RT.
