With no other changes except carb instead of EFI, the peak HP will be basically unchanged. I'd be surprised if there were a 5 HP diff either way, unless there were other changes like cam, headers, etc.

What you might be losing is seamless cold start up and overall drivability- the EFI can beat a carb for those things, including mileage and emissions. Depending on the static compression ratio, there could be a problem with detonation w/o the knock sensors. Better octane might be enough to offset the loss of knock sensors but if it isn't, using less total timing will hurt power, in some cases a LOT. But that remains to be seen.

To use a carb will also usually mean a different distributor will be needed to bypass the ECM.
