    Stingray Owners Beware of '16 Camaro SS.. It's LT1 May be 20HP more Powerful

    The 2016 Camaro SS has landed at Hennessey Performance (HPE). Stock baseline chassis dyno numbers on Dynojet are: 431 rear wheel hp and 427 rear wheel lb-ft torque. Pretty impressive for an engine that is rated at 455 hp at the motor!

    HPE tested a stock, seven-speed manual equipped 2016 C7 Corvette, which rated 410 RWHP.

    Perhaps something to do with the tri-y shorty headers and different engine calibrations?

    If anything Ford should be worried as the LT1 has more torque and almost as much HP to the wheels as the Coyote does at the crank.
    "The car's brilliant and ... a great surprise, pleasant surprise for all Corvette lovers everywhere ... a huge shock to our competitors ... because I don't think anybody was expecting something that good. What pleases me the most about it was that ... I can say this is the first car that's come out, that was done since I left.

    I don't think it's necessarily underrated but I do find it odd it has the Tri-Y headers over the vette and makes the same amount of power. Less if both have NPP.

    It's possible the drivetrain is more efficient, since it doesn't have the torque tube there are some differences.

    Dynos are just a tool. Variances in accuracy are rampant...



    These engines produce the same hp ...give or take the variables all these engines have...

    The camaro ss is a couple of clicks behind the vette since it weighs a couple hundred pounds less.

    Maybe a Visibility Compensation Factor ????


    On a more serious note..... if you don't see it from GM or robustly demonstrated and everything involved fully accounted for correctly then........

    I suppose..... on the otherhand..... or better said besides all the usual other..... right kind of Fuel and Stationary Cooling set up might end up having the Corvette get a little softer via some aspect of Thermal Management - which also likely would not happen on one fully sorted out - in the Real World ie with real movement and airflow.

    JB.. the weight difference is essentially 40lbs at this point. Expect the C8 to use a lot of Cadillac's CT6 frame expertise.
    You might want to recheck the weight on the Camaro. The weight you have listed is for the 4cyl turbo, I believe.

    Probably the way they have to route the exhaust on the Vette.

    That Henessey car seems like it might be a bit high (heh, I kind of think with his history of schemes perhaps Henessey likes his dyno reading overly optimistic).

    A shop near me had their A8 car put down 414/430.
