Is my power output low with mods?

This summer I had my M3 Dyno'd and with the SAE correction, the best pull was 350.49 HPW.

It was a hot summer day here in Albuquerque which is 5300ft elevation. With the hot temps, it was a desity altitude of about 8,000ft (Pressure altitude corrected for temperature).

My mods are Dinan software Stage II, Dinan pully, Encore Inovation Xpipe (HFC), MS air filter and Remus Sport Exhaust. I went Dinan because of the Warrenty.

I see other M3's posting Dyno charts with similar mods pulling around 380 HP at the wheel.

So I'm inclined to think I'm not pulling more than stock. I don't have a stock dyno unfortunately to compare.

What do you all think? Man, I'm gonna be pissed if I'm pulling low power after spending all this money and no real gains.
