Dynos vary, operators vary, weather varies...There are too many variables to really say the cars make "X horsepowers". All I know is that trap speeds in the quarter miles are a pretty damn good indication of power levels and these bolt-on N55s are basically making anywhere from 360 to 380 crank horsepower. There are a few outliers as with any platform but those are typical figures. Similarly, typical N54s are closer to 400 crank when looking at trap speeds. Trap speeds don't lie.
