The plate added an estimated 364 hp at the flywheel and 300 hp at the tires. The horsepower gain was attained using the recommended 350hp jetting (110-nitrous, 110-fuel) and burning 76 Racing's 118-octane race gas at 7.5 psi. The Chevelle also featured a progressive nitrous controller, which is why the nitrous power increases mildly first, then rises sharply above 6,000 rpm.

However, we think the chassis dyno's estimate is a little low based on the fact that this very same engine made 980 motor-only hp (vs. 918 estimated) on Westech's Superflow 901 engine dyno weeks before. That's about 6.5 percent more power than estimated in the chassis dyno test session. This is most likely due to the fact that the chassis dyno software cannot possibly know exactly how much the inertia drag of items like the flywheel, torque converter, transmission, drivetrain, and even the wheels and tires is. So the computer is extra-conservative in its estimate, but since this figure is only an estimate, we won't loose any sleep over it.
