Dont worry about the number... It doesnt mean much...
Use the dyno to TUNE the car... Thats all..
If you made 700whp or 500whp.. What difference would it make if you lost to a 280whp IROC camaro with a 383TPI???
Rob Zona's C5Z had went VERY VERY QUICK in the 1320... Theres yet to be a Stock bottom ended C6Z LS7 to run with his former Stock Bottom End Ls6 setup... 9.98 @ 13x.mph, I doubt it made much of a difference to the C6Z guys that have lined up to them what they dynoed come the end of the quarter mile..
I would rather be the guy in the 9.98 Stock Bottom End car with ALOT more $$$$ in my pockets than say I made 900+whp and run 10's on MT Bias....
Just my .02cents on the Dyno thing... Its a Tool... Ive seen some pretty outrageous dyno numbers that can give ya a big head, or a shitty day. Conditions change, cars change, different dynos, etc.... Wanna find out who has a quicker car... Line em UP!

But I doubt a 403cu, YSi, Meth Kit, Built Trans/Diff, full supporting mods, suspension, drag pack.... vs LS6/$4500 heads/$400 cam/LT's/Built Trans&Diff (RPM STUFF!)/stock fuel pump/ injectors/Drag Pack/suspension would cost more then BlownBlueZ
Both kool cars tho..
As for your Vendor, Tell them that 2.6H Kenne Bell Cobras barley break 600whp @ 19psi of boost with supporting mods on the dyno.. 2.3 Whipples at 17psi are around 570-580 there.
Damn that is hauling some serious @SS. Ill have to go back and see what you predicted before for my Dyno numbers and see how close we are lol. I just hope this centerforce holds up untill I get home :/
Had some issues on the Dyno today. Made my first pull and got 444/418 or something close, and made a fueling change (was still lean) and picked up 10 rwhp from one change. FOund out my TPS sensor was acting up, and wasnt registering the correct values at WOT to actually give my car WOT fueling/timing. The Dyno operator was impressed with my car, and said he thinks 480 RWHP is attainable on pump gas!!! It put down 454/425 before we figured out the oops on the TPS. Pretty good IMO on that stingy dynojet.
Oh ya that torque number does sound like a 470-475ish rwhp car. Nice.
Thanks! Im pretty happy concidering the issues it had. Im real impressed with my buddys cam only 05` that put down 435/418

Looks like you were hitting PE after 4600rpm... Did you try just target the g/cyl vs RPM timing table you were running in to get your peak numbers while you were there?
Yes still cable operated!
I just made the first run, tried a fueling change and I didnt do anything so we were looking at why and found out the TPS sensor was only going to like 80%, and Dan said it wasnt allowing it to go into WOT fueling. I spent 2-3 hours on the Dyno myself lol
But the LS9 doesn't have an intake manifold. It uses a roots style superchar... oh, I see what you did
