Diesel World Mag, featured truck question

So in my newest diesel mag they have an article on a fancy looking 7.3

The truck has lift/tires/stereo blah blah blah

But what has me kinda scratching my head is that is has...

intake
4in exhaust
riff raff fxr and boost fooler
Full Force "stage 1" injectors. Which im assuming is a 160/0 or 160/30 or somthing like that.
Live tuning by Jody from DP

Truck was dyno'd at 335hp 740lbft.

Does that seem low to anyone else?? I would have expected it to be closer to 400hp or am i way off? It does still have stock turbo, cant remember if they said it has a wheel or not.

I thought it would be a bit higher as well. I have 160's with a 38R and have been told by several tuners it should be in the 4-420 range as well , also seen quite a few pulls from others showing higher than the magazine results. I know the DYNO can make a difference as well on the #'s. Theres a place out here that has one i keep meaning to go to but i plan on upgrading to 238's in the next year as i've gotten bored with the 160's so really dont have any reason to pay the $ and see other than just curiosity. I'll let boredom in the seat of pants feel dictate my MOD spending but really have no certain # on a dyno i'm looking for.

160/0 , don't know who built them , bought a whole motor package with block , rods , injectors and turbo from DI. Not sure who does the build for him. My buddy owned the truck when the old motor made room for a view or two , I picked parts and helped him install all the new , after 10-11 months he didnt want the truck anymore so i swooped in and picked it up.

Thats what i thought , but again , depending on the Dyno the #'s can be all over the place.

Here's some rough examples from dynoproven that they say are typical dyno numbers at the top of the page with everything functioning properly , they look a bit more accurate.
