They tuned it on the dyno 3 or 4 times, with no HP gain, but I got about 13 more torque out of it.

The program they had also calculates what you would pull on a Dynojet, and that only got me about 10 more HP. Their dyno showed 232 HP, the "Dynojet" was at 241. Both were low to me. I'm going to try another shop and see if I can get some normal numbers.
Those numbers are puzzling. Was that on 93 octane? What did the A/F ratio look like on the dyno? Can you post your dyno graph?
