Dynos all have a level of inaccuracy but most shops will calibrate them to where they can all be within 5-10HP of each other regardless of what area you live in. Which is why TB gains are very, nearly impossible to show since the margin of error is larger than gains it MAY provide.
The car is old, nothing an s197 does is a surprise and there isn't nothing someone hasn't done already. Those particular mods simply never have and never will make those inflated gains.
In your case, without a before dyno, the dyno would have to be poorly set up so that the gains read high. but they may still be actual gains if say, the stock dyno was 300 WHP for example. But a before and after dyno showing 70 WHP on those mods, is not just inaccurate, it is just wrong. Faulty equipment, or deliberate tampering.

It simply doesn't add up. If it did, we would all be sitting on monster engines. Even a full Bolton car would have trouble getting that much power down.
I was not coming hard initially (tee hee), people just want their hand held and spoken to in Sesame Street songs. I said nothing offensive, an apple is an apple is an apple. It is not meant to be rude or not be rude. They were statements without "fluff" lol.
