Thr Calculator I use for 1/8thto1/4 mile conversion says it takes 720flywheel hp to run 9.36/6.00's so you either have more hp than you think or your chassis dyno operator didnt know what he was doing.

Here is what my set up is......Motor and car wise.

1965 Nova wagon
PG tranny with a 8 1/2 converter(stall probably in the 5800+range)with a T-brake Pro tree
Rear tire's are 32x14's Good Year's

Ford 9" with 4.88 gear's and a spool. Gear's might change if needed
Ladder bar's.

What the heck you doing over here? Get your butt back on steves nova site.

690-700 FLYWHEEL HP to run 6.00's..........take off 20% for RWHP = 560 RWHP.......

What's it matter anyways.......dyno's are for numbers, but the real test is the "race track" which will tell the story of your "actual" power output.....
