They definitely could have rescaled the graph to yield easier to understand power under the curve (which is what is really important).

At any rate, a lot of people like to use dyno results as 'bragging rites' There are way too many variables that come into play during a dyno run, & a skilled operator can even skew the results if he wishes.

You may find that a car with less HP/TQ dyno results blows your doors off even when your results are supposedly higher

Dyno results are more useful as a 'measuring stick' - get a baseline, then successive dyno runs after subsequent modding/tuning let you know if your efforts are headed in the right direction...
