Angry WTF

So I went to tune my 00 supercharged saleen after adding the following:

-In fender air filter
-Chicane RIPP inlet
-Lightning 90MAF
-75mm TB
-42lb injectors
-TR55 NGK plugs gapped at .045
-intercooler modification to seal the gaps
-Chicane 66mm supercharger pulley
-Mac Pro-chambers
-3.73 gears
-LPF heat exchanger
-LPF tank
-Focus fuel pump

All that got me a whopping 294hp and about 335ft/lbs torque at the wheels. All this with 8lbs of boost. Is it because I have a Series I saleen supercharger? I would of expected at least 340 to 360 rwhp. Any suggestions?

Who is doing the tuning? Do you have a way to see what is going on? If you have some dyno results, post them. I've seen a lot left on the table when it comes to mapping. Also, you have quite a few things that are temperature related. It would be nice to see if each item you have added or changed actually made an improvement.

I can conclude nothing from your dyno numbers unless you have the 'before' results from the same dyno.

Should be fine, but, if you up the boost more I'd switch.
