More TQ than HP???

So here's my question... How did my tq number end up so much higher than my hp number?

I was on a Mustang Dyno and put down 250hp and 317tq. (2500-5500rpm pull)

The build is a 360sbc (1995 TBI non-roller block) stock rods/crank, .060" over .125" dome(-3.5cc) speed pro hyper pistons, .055" quench, .015" shim head gaskets, 882 heads (intake ports opened up), 1.94" Int and 1.60 Exh valves, 76cc chambers, 1.6:1 S/A roller rockers, Crane 100172 274 H06 cam, edelbrock performer aluminum intake manifold, Holley 650 DP 4777-2, carter rotary fuel pump (internally regulated), MSD e-curve dizzy, MSD 6T box and blaster SS coil, 4 speed saginaw trans, centerforce dual friction clutch, Hays steel flywheel, 2.73 rear gears with mini spool and also wide open flowtech headers.

I understand that this is a torqeier setup but why so much more torqueier? Anyone have any ideas as to why the torque figure was so much higher than the hp?
