MINE'S GT-R exhaust makes 501 hp at the flywheel:

The GT-R was equipped with the prototype catback exhaust we featured a couple of weeks back, and although the design is far from streetable in its current form, it still created just over 20 hp over the stock setup by reducing backpressure and allowing a 1.42 psi increase in boost. Although Hsu maintains that the Dynapack might skew the results by up to five-percent, the 507.9 ps (500.95 hp) rating at the flywheel is still impressive considering that nothing was done to the GT-R's ECU.

The dyno test was taken at the flywheel, so If this is the case, then the 480hp rating that Nissan is giving seems to be accurate.
