The truck will feel a lot more torquey and powerfull. You won't need the dyno to tell you that.

First test ride is going to be a eye opener.

Make sure you have correct valve springs
the fuel system has to keep up @ WOT.
carb is a bit too small.
more boost.
You have barely scratched the power potential.

further: the dyno only tells you how much power is created.
it does not tell you if you are making good use of it. (acceleration)
