I look at the iconic LT-1 that makes 370 hp. I see this engine combo as less than an LT-1 so where am I wrong?
Does the engine sim give ideal results based on perfect tune?
I was told the software assumes "on the money" tune. Also, when I did these sims, I often spent several hours changing this and that to tweak the combination to produce max power. I can offer no rebuttal to the LT-1 power, other than GM rating the engine for less power than it actually made in order to conform to FED regulations or to appease the insurance underwriters. We know the Z-28 made more than 290 hp, but that's where it was rated by the factory.
