Guesses at actual certified Corvette Stingray HP/TQ numbers?

So Chevy's estimate is 450hp / 450lb-ft

...and we know that when Chevy says "estimated power is..." they really mean "it has way more than...."

My guess is 460hp / 460lb-ft.

I'm going to guess it's going to be a lot closer to the current Z06, just like the C6 base car was close to the C5 Z06. I'm going to guess 480/480.

Your taking RWHP right? Because a C6 Z06 has 505 at the crank

I'd say 470hp/470tq at the crank. That seems like pretty decent bump while leaving enough room for a Z06 to add another 50hp or so down the line without taking a major MPG hit.

As long as it is over 430, I'm good, er the wife's good. Well at least until Magnuson gets their SC kit out for it. I'm not sure how this DI thing is going to work with a supercharger.
