yea, it is.

but the numbers are right on. 426 horse @ 15% loss = 362.1 horsepower

there was another post on a G8 stock vs exhaust vs cai, exhaust, and a tune, and i believe that it put over 400 to the ground with all that.

I thought modern factory numbers were net, so wouldn't that mean they measure it at the drive shaft or something like that? I thought it was gross ratings from '71 and before or somethin like that that were from the flywheel or crank or somethin?

Thanks!!
Yep, those have been posted here once or twice, that HP loss seems pretty standard. GM seems to be not underrating their motors like they once have

^^^ It's not the transmission, it's then engine itself (I suspect you knew this but just for clarity...)

The manual comes with the 430 HP LS3 and the automatic comes with the 400 HP L99 (w/ variable valve timing and automatic fuel management.) I think you'll be very happy with it (and I suspect the only 400 HP L99s are gonna catch a lot of LS3s off-guard at the lights...)

"Net" meant "with all the accessories" -- stuff like water pumps, alternators, fans, etc. that cause drag and that that weren't required under the older "gross" rules. Even so, however, there were no hard-&-fast proscriptions about the actual testing regimen, which meant fudging the numbers was the norm. A few years ago (someone will chime in with when), the SAE published very specific guidelines for measuring engine output and most manufacturers complied, providing the first "accurate" power numbers for new cars and also providing, for the first time, a meaningful comparison between different cars, whether from the same or different manufacturers.

FWIW...
