Ported Throttle Body Power Gain

The new Ported Throttle Body fitted, i was not impressed with the dyno reading:- a gain between the Red and Purple run showing 6.8KW or 9.11HP, I did a back to back run with the new Ported Throttle Body this is between the Purple and the Blue run the different was 3.6KW the time between these run was 2 minutes so the temperature could be the problem here. The Ported Throttle Body DON'T HAVE A NEW BUTTERFLY AT ALL i paid $800.00 for so 6.8KW gain that around $114.00 a kilowatt a bit costly if you want to do this mod. The throttle body below has only been ported in the front section, and with the main shaft has been grounded to increase the flow rate up to 1100CFM.
