How accurate is DD2003?

Hi. I was just wondering how accurate Desktop Dyno 2003 is? I built an engine and it comes up with 548 hp at 6500/ 503 ft/lb TQ at 5000, at the crank.

385 sbc
11:1 compression forged flat tops
dart Pro 1 200's aluminum 2.02/1.6
solid roller (lunati 50169) .606/.587 248/252 @ .050
vic jr single plane port matched
750 quick fuel dp
1 3/4 primary tube 3 1/2 collector headers

sounds kind of high to me. Plus I think the carb may be too small, bad hesitation when you stab it at a stand still, it cuts out.

Thanks

sounds like you need a carb, but that could be pretty close. Only one way to know for sure.

Usually its about 5% over the top.

Jesus that's high! I'm at like 400ft. If you're thinking of going with a different carb a custom one would be well worth the money IMO. you're only looking at a couple hundred more and a good tuner can get that thing dialed in perfectly- which is harder than you think to do in your own garage.

Call up a couple carb shops and tell them what you have and what you want. Most of the better shops will work with you.
