327 in 70 nova

hey guys, just lookin for some input here. i have a 67 sj 327 block, factory forged crank. i have 6.125 crower sportsman rods, .30 srp forged pistons, 10.5 to 1 cr. edelbrock (eforce?) i believe aluminum heads, .710 lift custom grind crower cam.......2.02 and 1.60 valves....... 180cc runners, victor jr intake 750 cfm dp...... 4 speed saginaw( not going to handle this new engine) 3.73 rear gears, spool. car weighs 3400 lbs with iron heads. 2.5 flowmaster exhaust with x ppe..... what kind of power/ torque will this combo put out roughly, maybe what do you this a close quarter mile time would be, i realise there is alot of variables.............. thanks chris p.s. my machinist says the engine could easily exceed 9,000 rpm, but i dont want to turn it that hard on the street. THIS IS STRICTLY A STREET CAR.

You will need too much spring with this cam to run on the street, rethink
the combination

Honestly, and this is MHO only, I think you're trying to make a race engine into a street engine.....710 lift cam?? in a 327 for the street?... not enough compression for that cam and I really don't think those Edelbrock heads will take that much lift. It won't idle below 1500 rpm AND you won't see 9000, sorry just a weird combo for a street engine.
