It was dynoed using rolling speed our obdII was acting up unfortunately. Look at the gains not so much the hp and torque values compared to others.

Even though the numbers might be heartbreaking to some it is extremely accurate and realistic ( when the obdII is working). Any tuner will tell you a mustang is the way to go.
Well, the way to go but still not accurate

A rwd car at 25-30% drivetrain loss? Wow, no.
While no dyno will ever be 100% accurate in simulating real world environment, the mustang dyno is the closest you can get. The amount of loss would be fairly accurate comparing a 3rd or 4th gear hwy pull factoring in rolling and wind resistance. Also you can't look at drivetrain loss the way you're trying to. Simply look at the delta and amount of gains and that is it.
