If they are figuring about 14% drivetrain loss for a 6MT that would be roughly:

330 rwhp
362 rwtq

In the range of a PROcede v1.47 6MT car on 93 Octane (but about 10 rwtq less than procede car).
If they tested it on 91 Octane, then they are about 5 rwhp and 5 rwtq more than PROcede v1.47 car.

Not too bad, but I'm sure pricing will be high but I'll guess it's $1995 stand alone.
Oil cooler retrofits for early model cars should be free (as they have been for those people with sport option who've bitched and moaned to BMW about it.)

Pull the engine and put it on an engine dyno? It's possible. With what they have at their disposal, it's what I'd hope they did.
