The OP is just sharing his graph and we have to just take it for what it is. He mentioned it is a daily driver and will never see a track anytime soon, if at all. He dosnt want to go crazy and only wanted a little more power over what he had.
Exactly. I don't care too much about how my car performed when stock or about adding enough power to reach an arbitrary number. I bought a 1M because the complete package appeals to me as it is and my mods were simply to address its compromises - as is the case with just about any 100% stock turbo car nowadays.

To me, the takeaway from my dyno chart is to get a general idea as to what the powerband for the 1M looks like for those looking at stage 1. As others have mentioned in this post, a stage 2 powerband (with downpipe) would probably look noticeably different and be an even better indicator of what the N54 can do.
