VF used to claim 330 hp. I've seen this kit listed as "310 hp" recently. I'd side with 310 hp, based on some quick math.

225 hp * (6 + 14.7) / 14.7 = 317 hp

Then subtract some for parasitic losses and supercharger (in)efficiencies. 310 hp is reasonable.
At the moment it's the cheapest kit on the market (i think) and with no issues.. after a lot of search about vf..

Is your M54 manual or auto? Diff ratio?
