    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    the official "once a month question"...lol, sorry.

    yes, all ls1's came stock with 345 HP and about 325 TQ at the fly. You prolly have around 290 wheel-hp [stock] add a few bolt ons [like a cat back and aftermarket air lid] and you'll be up around 315 to the wheels.

    at the "fly" flywheel how much power you are making with the engine itself

    at the "wheels" how much power you are actually putting to the ground after parasitic loss through the drive train... tranny driveshaft.. rear end...
