what are they rated at stock? 400?
not bad for only 45miles being on the car, I'd expect numbers closer to 360 though.
not bad at all. I love those cars.
yes, 10% drivetrain loss is common
I have some LG motorsports wheels on my transam do you work there or something?
Actually more like 12percent on a 6 speed, and the fact that I have heard they're sandbagging a bit like they did with the LS1s.
"heard" means shit.
yeah exactly, thats why I said it wasn't bad for 45 miles, once its broken in, I'd expect 360ish, I guess I shoulda made that more clear.
about what id expect
i would'nt expect much increase in HP after break in. Most car manufacturers advertise stock hp to the crank, not the wheels.
thats true, but the last two motors that GM has introduced, they sandbagged on, and I "heard" they were going to do it that time too...400x.12 = 48hp lost in the drivetrain giving you 352hp, you figure they underestimate 10 to 15horses and that'll put you in the 360ish area.
there isnt' a single car manufacture that advertises whp
and 12% drivetrain loss is VERY optomistic, too.
LG motorsports is like 2 minutes from my house. Thankfully I don't own an F-body for multiple reasons.
I'm pretty sure all of them advertise at the flywheel, I dont know of any that advertise at the wheels. On LS1 cars most guys saw a 10 to 12 horsepower increase..at least the ones I saw, but I Never saw one dynoed with only 45miles on it, saw one with 3hundred somthing...but not 45
actually I was talking to alexws6
So was I. Your point?
Tha NSX with what mods?
then why did you quote me?
It was further to the reply button.
that was pretty bogus I thought, the C6's are getting 12.50s to 12.70s in the quarter mile, last time I looked up an NSX's time it was 13.1s...but it has been a couple years.
