Horsepower Ratings On The 6.0l

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anybody can clue me in on the different power ratings on the 6.0L. I have a 2007 Silverado 2500HD 2WD Ext Cab Long Bed with the 6.0L gas engine. From what I've managed to dig up my truck is only rated at 300 HP. This doesn't seem right. My last truck was a 2006 Silverado 1500 Z71. It had the 5.3 and was rated at 310 HP. I've also noticed that the 6.0 has been rated in other models at 340, 345, 353, and in a couple instances I've seen numbers over 400. Why is the power lowest in the most heavy duty application that engine is used in?? I would think that the 2500HD would have the highest numbers since its designed to tow and haul as its primary job. Any info would be appreciated.

 

----Also if anyone knows how I can achieve those higher numbers, I'm all ears. It seems silly to have an engine like this running way below its potential.

Looks like the 2007 6.0L in a 2500HD is rated at 353 hp @ 5,400rpm and 373 ft.-lbs. of torque @ 4,400. Power ratings seem to increase slightly by year to remain competitive with similar-sized engines from competitors. Nowhere have I seen a 6.0L rated below that of a 5.3L in a given model year.

I have a 2007 Classic 2500HD with the 6.0L and 4.10's. My truck is rated at 300hp. My best friend has an 07 Classic 1500 with the 5.3HO which is rated at 310hp. The difference is in the torque. Mine has 360 ft-lbs at 4000rpm while his 1500 has 335 ft-lbs at 4000rpm. The difference is in your torque! Check the stats on the 07 Classics - the 5.3 HO has a higher hp rating than the standard 6.0L. The NBS 6.0 has 353hp.

Just fyi, outside of different heads on the aluminum 6.0L trucks the main difference is just tuning. GM really holds the 6L back in stock form. If you just got a custom tune you could expect an extra 30hp easily from your block.
