        Do you have the dyno graphs and do they show boost and afr ? do you have a boost gauge? 360lbft of torque doesnt sound right for what i presume is a stage 2 car.
        Your best bet is probably to take is straight back and get them to give it the once over.. who's map is it?

          where did you have it done. 360 seems a bit high, although once i did get 390 at mpg lol. seems a bit odd. last dyno i got 323 and 340 both ftlbs. so depending where you have had it done figures change alot. your map obviously shows a good torque increase but bhp may have already been good on the original map and responsed well to any upgrades like exhaust etc.

                    There rollers have a reputation for doing odd things occasionally. Your before figures sound about right though.

                        Did you not ask the tuner these qestions when you where on the rollers or before you left the garage ?

                          I would say the after figures should be ignored.

                              ignore the torque figures, but at least they have increased alot on the dyno and thats all that matters, on the same dyno, same day etc that before and after were different. dont know why the bhp is a bit less but it could be down to a few little things like where the power is created on the new map, if you havnt got suficient airflow at the higher rpm where it may produce the more power you may loose out?( just a thought something along those lines. id take the figures with a pinch of salt. whats your full spec as we dont know much..
