Are these dyno results normal or low for my existing mods ?

Ok so I just left the dyno shop very disappointed 😢 I made 356whp !!! My mods are the follow .
1.rpi catless xpipe
2.ess tuning cable
3.ms intake

I will soon be supercharging the car with ess also!! So my question is this a normal "whp" for my mods or am I lower than standard (I know no car is the same ) .

I'm no expert, but with no cats and a tune that does sound low............but ofcourse we all know dynos can vary a lot.

Your post is too generic. What kind of dyno was it? A mustang dyno will read low and that would sound about right. You can't just post your dyno is too low without any supporting info. I suggest you read up on the different kind of dynos and then evaluate your sessipn

delta's are all that really matter, so without a before, it's really not much help. As others have said, different dyno and different conditions make a big difference.

^^^ What they said and what kind of fuel are you running? Maybe some bad gas or spark plugs may need changed as well. It could be a combination of a few things to be honest.

Look on the bright side, it's more HP than you had to start with and you don't have to share your results with others. Enjoy the ride!

You could take off all your mods and dyno again. You need a delta.

Best advise. Otherwise, it's a guessing game.

Not really a guessing game. As long as temps were not extreme and a few runs were done to get some kind of adaptation average happened 265 is really low for catless, intake/drop in and a tune on a dynojet with 93 octane.

I would ask you when did you have your plugs changed? I am guessing you are not hitting your timing targets which is the primary way a tune increases power. WIthout good plugs you will knock before ever hitting the targets

How old are the plugs? How old is the software? Without determining why the car is "not running right", we can only assume that this particular dyno just reads a bit low.
