what should a stock '94 SSE L27 dyno?
 
i'm heading to Ft.Collins CO and might dyno my SSE.....what can i expect from it? it's 100% stock and runs and drives great. think i could hit 135whp or is that optimistic? what about wheel torque?

170 hp.. ~200tq and 20% drivetrain loss.

Drivetrain loss is not a percentage!. All stock cars will have the same percentage though.

isn't the L27 factory rated at 170hp/225tq? (at the crank of course)

anyone care to throw out some # guesses? fwiw the car has 104,000 miles. i'm more interested in what i can get for wtq than whp.

It all depends on what GM was actually putting out compared to what they said. There were improvements from 92, yet the rating stayed the same. Also many GM vehicles will dyno some figures at the wheel, not calculated at the crank.

No one has dyno'd an L27 yet on here, so we're curious to see what you got, since we have no clue....

I'd be more interested in HP, as it's a measure of applied torque :wink:

i will be interested in seeing these figures also

I say 130whp/175wtq. Just a complete guess, but thats what I think.
