Some companies, such as Edelbrock, are pretty into this dyno matching thing. They give dyno results on some of their products when used with their other products (given part numbers) and give you the dyno results. Makes it all easy.
They have this on alot of popular Ford, Chevy, and Chrysler applications. For these they have what they call "Performer" which is for very low end power made between Idle - 5,500 RPMs. Then they have "Performer RPM" which moves the power to 1,500 - 6,500 RPMs. Then they have "Torker II" which is 2,500 - 6,500 RPMs.
Here are a few combo dyno results given from Edelbrock for a Chrysler 383
"Performer" (Idle - 5,500RPMs)
"Performer RPM" (1,500 - 6,500RPMs)
They also have what they call a "Victor 383" (3500-7500 rpm) for this motor, but that's pushing it.
Basically these are good street setups that you don't have to guess at, AND can give you an idea of what to go for if you weren't even going to use their "package" setups.
