My theory is that here is no way 470hp can propel 5200+lbs 0-60 in the low 4.X seconds.
I think the engines are performing per spec at "normal" 70-90 degree weather and are over performing when colder temps are present. Maybe 500-525hp in the lower 30-50 degree temps which seems more explainable for the low 4 second sprints.
Ok i have been out 2 times at the drag strip in diff weather with a bone stock 2012 and the race wt was 5492lbs.
1st time in feb the temp was 55 degrees and at the track my 0/60 was 4.3. Gas was 91 octane.
2nd time in june the temp was 89 degrees and at the track my 0/60 was 4.4. Gas was 98 octane.
