Correct. I was going by the fact that my car made 404hp at the wheels on a DD, and we now know that was pretty close to a genuine 485 at the flywheel (since seeing engine dyno printouts at the factory).

Using the standard DD calculation for a 4WD car, standard CBA GT-Rs tend to produce a claimed, calculated 506/510hp, but I now believe that to be erroneous (but irrelevant because you should only ever use a RR to show differences, not absolute power figures anyway).
