..................hopes its not trueI think for auto its like 23%. So 300 HP - 231 whp. I think that's bout rite.
great ideaThere have been some 3.7 V6 owners (and performance parts manufacturers) that have dyno'd their stock 3.7 V6 prior to testing their mods.
Contact any of the larger tuner manufacturers and ask them what the HP at the wheels are for a stock 3.7. Most have an email tech line you can send this question off to.
does the 13' v6 auto have a lockup torque converter?Most drivetrain loss for an auto is in the torque convertor. Unless its locked up, the fluid trying to mesh the engine and trans just eats away at the hp. Once it's locked up or you're considering a manual, it's all rotational mass and frictional drag on the rotating parts. Lighter driveshaft, flywheel, wheels, smaller brakes... all get the hp closer to crank. If these vehicles didn't have synthetic fluids to begin with, you could gain a couple hp just switching to synthetic. Pretty wild stuff.
