Approx how much hp loss should i be looking at with my c6 with a B&M transpak shift kit? 25% or less?

If i am making 400 fwhp (some people say the loss is logarithmic)

or is it like some people think is a set value no matter what hp you are making (according to a couple pages stock c6 take 50-60hp)

The only thing i know for sure is that when our motor made 412 Hp we made 360 Rwhp according to computer based drag strip dynos.
??? 360/412=0.87 for a total loss of 13 percent. 412-360= 52hp loss
This was with a C-4.

It's my understanding that a 'good' C-4 can take 400-500HP and it uses less HP than a similar-built C-6.

So - IF you've got the $$$, a C-4 can be built to take it, is lighter & 'uses' less HP.

Remember: It's just MONEY!!

KVs car weighs about 2800 with him in it and runs 6.20s in the 1/8 mile. I don't know the exact math formula but if that isn't over 600 HP, I'm greatly surprised.

His C4, which was origianlly prepped by Trans-King, has gone over 400 passes without being touched and with no problems.

We had Bruce Micetich of Advance Transmission in Knoxville Iowa freshen it a couple of times and he always complained about the high internal pressure, but didn't change it and it has been very reliable.

As I recall, KV bought that trans. about 6 or 7 years ago and paid $1100 for it. We ran a C6 before that and when we changed over, all incrementals improved greatly. He has since rollerized it which it wasn't originally.

A properly prepped C4 will stand alot of horsepower and abuse.

I beleive the figures I heard for HP consumption were 60 for the C6 and 35 for the C4. I could be wrong.

I'd call KV's Trans King prepped, rollerized C-4 a "BETTER" C-4; which is much better than a 'good' C-4. I was thinking of a solid, OEM C-4 slushbox with a bolt-in kit.....

I'd also guess that a top-shelf C-4 from JPT would also take a bunch more than 500HP!
