That is an awful lot of driveline loss for a car with so many light weight components; from the flywheel, to the driveshaft, to the brakes, lighter wheels etc. etc.

We just dyno'd a Camaro with a tighter final ratio; and it was 12.7% Driveline loss. Of course, there are a lot of variables that change from a controlled engine dyno room, to a Mustang Dyno... from temperatures, to humidity, and flow properties.
