About 330-335rwhp on a dyno jet is a fairly good estimate.

That seems like a lot of drivetrain loss for a RWD car, dunnit? What do LS2 C6 vettes put down?
it is what it is. vettes put down 350-355 I think.

That's not an insignificant difference. I wonder why?
dual mass flywheel, two piece driveshaft, lots of rubber in between and all around. I don't know.

That's kind of irksome. Someone should write a letter.
"Dear malfeas99,

The corvette and CTS-V do not put down the same power to the rear wheels because despite sharing a very similar engine, the rest of the car and it's drivetrain are not the same. Hope this has been helpful.

Respectfully,

Random Internet forum poster"

:D

I shall be taking my "bonestock" LS6 in for a dyno run soonly. I will let yall know.
Looks like you have a stealth grey. My personal favorite color, esp with black interior. Rarely pas one on the road. One of my best buddies totalled his wife's 05 stealth grey one weekend while she was out of town. Sooo they are getting even rarer.

the stealth gray is pretty sweet. in certain lights it looks awesome. in other lights, not so much.

personally, i hate the all black interior. its like a cavern. i LOVE the cashmere interior in my CTS though.

the black has a tendency to fade to gray and the leather looks worse when it gets worn, that's my only problem with it.

I love my tan interior, it stays surprisingly clean.

i am sure it has to do with the suspension geometry

there is a reason the suspension and drivetrain were designed the way they are; dynamic stability

i dont think the sigma engineers were too concerned with hole-shots

There was an 04 Bone stock V at a GTO dyno day not too long ago. It made 337rwhp, 330tq. The big brakes, dual mass flywheel, 2 piece driveshaft, and IRS kill our hp output to the wheels.
