The first time you go dynos usually are pretty dissapointing. You get high hopes from the "advertized" numbers and stuff you hear on the boards and go get the air let out of your sails. As far as I know everyone rates their stuff at the wheels HP wise. However HP ratings on chip programs IMHO is bogus. They can range so much from truck to truck and they are usually more of a best case scenario so it makes it very missleading and has a lot to do with marketing. I mean you can have two placed with the same program that makes the same power but if one place advertizes it as a 80hp program and the other advertizes it at what he actually sees on average at around 60hp are you going to buy it from the guy claiming 60hp? No. Are you going to get any more power from the guy claiming the 80hp program? No. So to try to put their programs on an even keal with the other manufacturers they try to advertize like programs the same way as their competitors.
Your numbers may be a little low but not to far off what I think would be average. Especially for your other supporting mods. From my personal experience on Mustang dynos is they are VERY inconsistant. The numbers can change depending on how the operator sets it up as well from what I'm told so I would use your numbers as a base line against later dyno runs with other mods but not against other trucks that have run on other dynos.
