need more info on engine and vehicle...cam specs...the more the better...

its possible, you have more compression, but less boost....

hard to say how good your 'tune' is?

you gained the compression ive herd (compression gains abut 4% of hp per 1 point of compression like from 10:1 to 11:1 ) some say you gain from 10-20 hp depending on the engine itself but you lost boost you get about 10-20 hp per pound of boost depending on size and cfm of the supercharger so depending on the supercharger itself it may have just equaled each other out

I know I have the crabs on the fat side I haven't been able to get back to the track to do some tuneing it was the first time out this year and just expected a little better performance but also had the timing locked at only 25 degrees total

bump timing up to 30 degrees total....then bump it up one degree at a time...don't go over 35...

watch your engine temps as others have said...don't go over 180 degrees
