All l'm saying is that although the Dinan Kit is a very reliable one, it puts out less HP on the same boost than say the ERT or RMS kits. Supposedly the Dinan kit uses a Vanos blocker which blocks the Vanos out to reduce the valve overlap. Playing it safe and reliable but this is detrimental to forced induction performance. The 315 HP rear wheel figure is definately impressive. It is possible, seen it on M3 stage 1 kits as well. Every car is a little different and takes better to different upgrades. Just make sure that when you go to a Dyno setion you are aware that some operators use corrected HP figures....they will correct according to variable factors such as temperature. I have seen a lot of "over"-correcting during runs...easily turning out 10-25hp differences from what the actuall car puts out. BEWARE.....just my .02
