Confused about power on the Dyno

So this winter I finally dealt with my faild DOD lifter by installing a Texas speed and performance stage 1 cam (225/236), pace setter headers, solo performance axel back, rotofab cai, tune and DOD delete. I then took my car to get dynoed on a dyno-mite Dyno and the numbers seemed kind of disappointing. At the wheels the car made 332hp and 339tq but that seemed kind of low so I just wanted to get the opinion of the community on weather or not my car is making the power that it should with the mods that it has.

Is your car much improved over stock?
If so, be happy and don't worry about chasing numbers. They aren't all that important.
If you weren't able to dyno it before the mods, most of these cars stock will baseline in the 280-290 RWHP range, give or take a bit. What you're concerned with is improvement gains over the previous state your car was in.
Same setup on different dynos and different days can give you different figures.
How your car performs in the real world is what counts.

things are not as they appear to be.........
