There's alot of factors.....
which transmission, build of transmission (stock vs race), driveshaft material, rear-end type and material, etc etc etc

But typically you can figure 15% drivetrain loss for a manual and 20% drivetrain loss for an automatic.
Add maybe another 1% for a 12-bolt, or add 5-6% more for a 9-inch.

yes they do, the TC is where most of the torque, and HP are lost seeing as it is a fluid coupling between the engine and transmission there is no physical contact between the engine and the tranny, just fluid turning it.
