55 2 Door Post

I am fairly new to the 50's american made cars. I recently bought a 55 chevy 2 door post with a 406 ci sbc edelbrock scorpion intake, steel crank comp cam .525" lift. roller timing chain, double hump heads 202 intake valves, comp valve springs, Crane roller rockers, Holly 780 Carb, HD clutch, super T10 4 speed trans, rear end is a 410 ratio posi. and it has adriveshaft loop. The car going to a mechanic friend on Monday. It needs the headers attached, it has not been started in a few months and before that it was started regularly in years. I only learned prior to buying that the above listed items might be pretty hot. Like I said I did not know much about these types of car and I still trying to learn.

What do you think this setup will put out for h.p. and torque? Please educate me. THANK YOU

First thing I noticed is that a LOT of carb for a 406sbc even with that cam and intake. I'm kind of stuck on the 600 Edelbrocks..you don't have to constantly mess with the adjustments like with the 780 Holley.
