Disappointing dyno numbers

Hey Ever,
I had my car dynoed last week and the numbers feel low to me, unfortunately I couldn't have a baseline before the mods so there wasn't anyway to compare the differences.

Mods are:
Fabberge/ips twin turbo kit
Stock engine and exhaust
ID1000
Th400
3600 stall from circle D
Car peaked at 8.5/9 psi

Anyway.. thoughts? Does It look reasonable ?

It does look low but im not sure about running a TH400 and how it will make a difference. Are you running a boost gauge?

Yeah I'm running a gfb boost controller. It shows boost as well as peak boost

Does it drive well? Many times Dyno numbers can be shrewd due to contributing factors in its own system. Does it drive smooth? Does it buck or have idle issues? are you sure there are ZERO leaks?

What kind of fuel do you guys use in Qatar? specifically during this tune.

Another huge effect on power is heat. ESPECIALLY from a turbo kit. Qatar looks like it could get pretty warm there..

Drives and idles really nice car feels perfect. Checked for leaks after some dyno and street pulls, no leaks at all and the car runs on 93 octane

Does seem low but I'm not sure how much the 400 eats up.

The TH400 is a very hungry transmission, but that definitely seems low. Did you ask what a stock car puts down on that dyno?

What do you reckon I go with? I like the sleeper effect the exhaust gives but if it's affecting my numbers then what the hell. So far I beat on stock zl1's but I think my car has more in it

Stock exhaust isn't killing anything.

Find out what is limiting, it is either fuel or motor. Turn it up until you are out of one or the other.

What? Stock cats, H, and mufflers aren't killing a FI car? Is that what I just read?

I made more power with a cam swap and exhaust.

He doesn't have stock cats, and there are TONS of TT cars that have made 800+rwhp on stock h/mufflers. So no, that isn't killing him or limiting power. Could it make more power with a full 3" exhaust, sure, but no where it is close to limiting the power.

AGP literally bolts on a TT kit with meth to LS3 cars and makes 800-810rwhp all day long. On an auto car 650-675 or where ever the owner wants to stop to keep the stock tranny alive.

True. Car runs really well though, tuner says the high stalk or th400 are affecting the numbers. We're going to add meth soon and see what it does. Unfortunately the tracks don't open till September because it's really hot right now Soo I don't have a way to really test it and see what it does
