Put my car on a dynojet today. It has 3900 miles and is 100% bone stock, including the charcoal filters.

I made the "mistake" of telling the dyno operator to use fourth gear. Apparently 5th yields a little more power.

They only put a very small fan in front of the car.

I am removing the CFs tomorrow and adding BMCs and RPI scoops. It'll be interesting to see what kind of difference it makes, particularly with a proper fan setup.

SAE is the generally accepted method for dynos, and your 410 number probably would have been up had you been in a different gear.

Nice numbers I would like to see your numbers corrected and uncorrected with the C/f out and Rpi ram air kit installed

410 is very healthy. I advise you to stick to 4th gear for consistency purposes!
It's not that important to know how much maximum power you are running cause you will never know.

Power gains are all that matters in my opinion!
