A quick Question if I may....

Comparing your old dyno plots
1) Dated May 2011
Image
2) dated October 2014
Image

Was this the effect of cams alone or any other major engine changes?

Main thing is the side feed inlet manifold and the tubilar exhaust manifold. The rest is the same

It's interesting that you have lost 50 lb/ft of peak torque and around 1000rpm of spool! Yet gained little bhp but do now have a very nice smooth torque curve.

It appears that the second run was probably also done in 3rd?

Maybe you are simply running less boost in the mid-range now?

It's probably nicer/easier to drive now but I can't help thinking that for hillclimb the earlier shot of torque would be quicker?
