drive train loss

hey everyone but I was wondering if anyone has ever thought about where the hell the 18% power loss, is comming from. Thats a prety stout number to be dropping when 10-15 is normal.

You should have bought a 6-speed. The 2004 GTO puts about 300 to the wheels with 350hp. That is a 14.3 % power loss to the wheels. Are the 05's loosing 18% to the wheels.

I've got a M6 and if i use my correct dyno numbers,337hp, then its a 15.75% loss. Uncorrected I dyno'd 353hp, which is 11.75% loss.
