The V8 is rated at 300hp. If you're generous, you can say you'll lose 15% through the driveline. That brings you down to 255 at the rear wheels.

Rio Rancho, NM, is at almost 6,000' ASL. You lose 2-3% per thousand feet. Again, being generous, you lose 12% for altitude. Now you're down to 224 or so.

So, your graph at 251 max power may be a little generous. Most likely from running it in 3rd.
Well I am no expert but the 2nd dyno in the post above yours from another Dyno shop shows more hp . This was done in 4th gear imagine that.

The numbers are not great I know. I am saving for the Hellion Turbo , The guys at Motiva are great they work on Mustangs all the time and They guarantee there work. 7000.00 is a lot of coin so it will take some time.

Yes it is,I notice he did it with the AC on though. I guess these are just numbers like Kenneth pointed out. The tuner or owner Dave who dynoed the car said he could get 10 more hp.
