It's a little on the high side give or take a few. I just cross referenced it's math with one of the Wallace Racing ET-MPH-HP calculators.
My last SS dyno'd 316/325
Your calculator says 370 crank
Wallace says 358 crank (based off actual ET/trap/weight)

You have rw hp/tq #'s in your sig, who cares about crank hp?

because when kids, or people who know NOTHING about cars asks "how fast is it?", I can tell them 850 hp and 900 tq ;) lol

If someone asks me how fast my car is, I'll generally show them a timeslip or quote the time on the slip, I won't tell them how much power it's making, but that's just me...
