you can take the dyno numbers other than just peak power numbers,like,,,SFC and compare that to your A/F numbers,then compare where your peak torque occurs,RPM wise and peak RPM of the top of the horse power curve.
See if the RPM levels match what you want for a finished product?
If your torque figure is in the wrong proportion to your horse power figure find out why,,,,camshaft has already been addressed,,,,
decide if 1 3/4 tube primary headers are in fact better than 1 5/8 headers for your application?

dont rant about the top power figures until the proper tuning is finished
