  • Hardy Coffman

    It’s not possible to build a flat-plane crank much larger than 5L- ask Ford... 5.2L Voodoo engines in the 350R are vibrating themselves apart. The drawback/price of a lightweight fast rotating flat plane crank is lots of harmonic vibration when the stroke gets long enough to reach displacements over 5L. Ford had to add 20+ lbs to the crank in the VooDoo engines and change the firing order just to smooth them out. It’s crank weighs 50lbs, and by comparison a typical Ferrari flat plane crank weighs about 35lbs and that’s a HUGE difference in rotational momentum and vibration. I know there’s no replacement for displacement, but all the extra weight for half a liter in displacement defeats the whole reason for doing it. The natural balance and vibration damping of a cross plane crank is what allows larger than 5L displacement. At 5.5L you’d have to add so much weight to the crank to balance it that it would defeat the purpose. The Z06 will likely come in right around 4.8-5.0L, and the ZR-1 will get an updated TT version of the Cadillac Blackwing V-8.

    Screw the burnout. I want to see the Z06 twin-turbo, flat-plane crank Zora on the track eating Ferraris and Lamborghinis for breakfast. Then watch the same the Zora on the street terrorizing the "Bel-Air Boulevardiers" in their Euro-trash buggies. (Sweet revenge for General Motors)!

      Mr Kevin supercharged vs NA it makes tons of sense. The corvette race car has like 450 HP you don’t need a lot to go fast And look at lambo and Ferrari they don’t have much over 600 except a few.

  • Godzilla

    Probably not a good idea to talk about the strike. As a union worker myself.....talking about scab labor will only tick off any union fans you have. It sounded like your more interested about the product you might receive than the workers and their concerns and needs. Just some friendly advice. Hopefully they will just have it resolved before the production line comes on line.

    • HorsePower Obsessed

  • Cassie Spencer
    Cassie Spencer 15 days ago +1

    495 BHP (crank) equates to approximately 445 - 420 RWHP taking into account both 10% and 15% HP drivetrain loss, respectively.
    However, since the C8 uses a dual clutch A/T (vs a torque converter A/T) it could potentially result in more or less HP loss compared to a torque converter A/T although I used the same drivetrain loss percentages for both.
    This can be further refined if RWHP and RWTQ dyno results were available using the formula: RWHP/RWTQ /.85 = BHP/BTQ.
    Furthermore, the amount of horsepower lost due to inertia, drag, windage, pumping and friction varies depending on engine, transmission and drivetrain design. Therefore, the total power lost is specific to each vehicle and no single rule, percentage or fixed number can apply to all vehicles. In other words, it’s a calculated ‘guesstimate’, although an often somewhat accurate one.

    • Cassie Spencer
      Cassie Spencer 14 days ago

      @HorsePower Obsessed Another thing I haven't seen anyone mention is the fact dual clutch automatics have some quirks drivers need to be aware of.
      For example, when you're stopped, put your foot on the brake which in effect automatically puts a DCT in neutral. And doing so is a good idea since it's best to avoid inching forward like many people do with a torque converter A/T. That's kind of a 'no no' with a DCT and I won't be surprised if it's mentioned in the owners manual. Why is that? It's due to the fact a DCT uses internal clutches which, when used to creep forward, results in unnecessary wear.
      I've driven a few 'P' cars which had the PDK trans and I was cautioned about doing that, although I made them feel better by agreeing it's not a good idea and explained why. :)

    • HorsePower Obsessed
      HorsePower Obsessed  15 days ago +1

      Exactly right. The DCT is what really throws a wrench into the works because it could be less or more. The % lost was always spot on but the DCT is the wildcard.

  • Steve Fowler
    Steve Fowler 15 days ago

    I can't see GM putting another SBC engine in the Z in the C8. I believe GM races the C7R in the GT International series which has a 4 liter limit for turbo charged cars so I think the C8 Z engine may very well follow Ferrari and McLaren a 3.9 literish TT engine FPC DOHC V8 at about 650 BHP in Z form...maybe even "just" 600 BHP, then 700 in the ZR1 like the Ferrari F8. Anything past that is overkill without AWD and/or hybrid.

  • Yoosee motoring channel
    Yoosee motoring channel 15 days ago +1

    People complaining about new hp figure lower than c7, look at the big picture. 560whp on mustang dyno should mean close to 650 crank hp. Not only that, this is NA! W smaller displacement. Means it doesn’t have to deal w all the supercharger+pluming weight. Not to mention good chance of it having much better response & higher rpm limit.
    Its not always simple hp numbers game. Remember, new 992s does 0-60 in 3 sec flat w 440hp. Its about efficiency and how well the power gets transferred to the road.

    I don’t see how the strike won’t affect C8 start date as they were scheduled to build C7’s all the way through September. They have people who already put down deposits and ordered and I don’t see GM abandoning sold orders.
    Also keep in mind before the strike the union only produced 8 C7’s. So GM is already weeks begin on C7 production and each day the strike continues likely mean# C8 production slips.

  • Coffee Rebel
    Coffee Rebel 22 days ago

    IMO, there is no way the Z06 will have less than 700 HP. Last few generations the Z06 had similar (slightly higher) HP than previous gen ZR1 so if that tradition continues, we might be looking at 750-ish HP Z06 and ZR1 variant will probably be some crazy hybrid monster. It might be a Grand Sport dyno?

    BLACK05GO1 22 days ago +1

    Mustang Dynos typically dyno about 10% lower than a dyno jet dyno. So 560 rwhp would be close to 600 rwhp on a dyno jet, which would make crank HP around 650-700 hp at the crank.. That could see the base model making around 480 hp, the ZO6 making around 650 - 700hp, and the ZR1 making around 750-800 hp. Remember this is a different car. You can't compare these hp numbers apples to apples with the C7 (which is a heavier car that doesn't launch well).

  • Anthony Freda
    Anthony Freda 22 days ago

    I’d bet the #s will be a little more, maybe mid 600s but with this mid engine platform and all the aero going on, as well as the dct, this car just doesn’t need the same power to be as fast as the c7s and the rest of the “competition”. Plus Chevy wants to leave room for improvements/gains in power in future models. It’s kind of standard business practice in all industries to leave some room to continue to “improve and sell” them for many years. Certainly they could build a 1k horsepower monster now, but why not get there gradually and sell a ton more cars. Regardless, this C8 truly was “engineered” to be fast from A to Z. Add some weight savings and sticky tires this thing is going to flat out FLY on any kind of track you can throw at it.

    From an Engineer's stand point it makes no sense to build a N/A DOHC flat plane crankshaft engine that is 5.4+ liters to develop 600 BHP...that's like shooting yourself in the foot and you are left with a dead end engine (i.e. not a good candidate engine to TT charge for 700 HP due to Vibration issues inherent in large displacement FPC engines)...much easier/smarter to build a 4 liter TT FPC DOHC engine to dial in 600 H.P. pretty conservatively (i.e. without needing to go to Titanium crankshaft/flywheel/connecting rods and Inconel intake and exhaust) and then if you want a Zora/ZR1 car just use a titanium/Inconel build and you can get to 700 HP and then the price tag will be $175K+, whereas I would expect a Z Spider could be built at a good profit for about $125K. I own a C7 Z06 so am waiting to see what the Z power plant really is...should be interesting.

  • William Arrington
    William Arrington 23 days ago

    They are obviously the Z06 numbers. figure 10% drivetrain loss. Iam hoping you miss spoke also. HP and TRQ cross at 5252 RPM. One HP is equal to 33,000 foot pounds of work per minute. When you do the extra math of addinging in the equations for torque and velocity you will find out hp always equals TRQ at 5252 rpm. They have to cross there because thats how math works. Therefore peak trq ends no later then 5252 and normally closer to 4000 so if those are the actual leaked number they are 100% made up. For the sake of a final number though.. let use the wrong numbers spoke. That would be 617 hp at the crank and 600 trq. People might also cry because the last z06 made more power... who cares. The outgoing z06 did o to 60 in 2.95 seconds or to put it in perspective... the same as the base c8 corvette. The base c8 also will run about 11 flat if figures are all true in the quarter with a good launch. A stock c7 z06 runs about 10.8 with a good launch on stock tires. There are freak cars claiming 10.6 but i never believe those outliers. As long as the z06 comes with the blackbird. There will be part available pretty much the first month. hennessey is already building parts for the ct6 vsport which means its only a few tweaks to make them work on the vette. here is the write up on the stock motor in a 4400 pound caddy... thats a total guess on weight. www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/first-drives/a28603690/2020-cadillac-ct6-v-first-drive-review/. Its a very impressive motor. Take away 1000 pounds and slap that in a vette and you have a monster that will eat the outgoing zr1 with a tune only. Now here is the issue. The ct6 is built in china... that motor is probably built there also. This globalization is pissing me off but at the same point you cant blame GM here. The AWU is a piece of crap and has already destroyed the american auto market once.

    I work in manufacturing at a vehicle manufacturing plant.

    flat plane crank engines hit peak HP at way higher RPM's then 5400. peak HP on a pushrod engine would come around those RPM's but I doubt they are true for the base at the wheels.
