Default Virtual Engine Calculator

Just ran my track times through the Virtual Engine Calculator. Used 3700-3750 for weight and it suggests I'm in the 290 hp range. I'd be cool with that but I'd been figuring more like 265-275 hp.
Does that sound about right for my mods? My major power adder mods are the 3.4" pulley, CAI w/10" K&N cone, and Magnaflow Wide Open muffler. I'd have thought more like 30-35 hp for all this, but 45-55 hp?!!?! That'* what V.E.C. suggests. Not that I'm complaining with those, HP #'*, but personally I think the e.t'* indicate almost stock HP, but the mph'* seam more in the +30-40 HP (me thinks).

Anyhow, what do you guys think? My #'* or the V.E.C.'*?

I have that program too. I have played around with the weights and qt times and find it reads high?
You can play with the calibration bars to have it read a little more accurate but there is a disclaimer about fudging the numbers?
