Can anybody guess what my horsepower might be??

I have a 72nova with a sb350
my heads are 64cc with the 2.02 / 1.60 vaules with 1.5rollers rockers , with hedman headers
my pistons are flat tops with 4 eyes
im running a tunnelram with 2 450 cfm carbs.. ( rpm-2800-8000)
my cam is a hyd roller 288/286 230/230 560/560 lobe110
(2500-6000 rpm )
trans is a 350 with a 3500 stall
msd dist (#8360)
265-50r15 tires on back.
411 gears
and if someone could give me a tire size thats taller that would bring my ratio down alittle. i wanted to run a 373 but all ready had the 411. any help would be great thanks Robbie

Id guess 375-400 depending on what brand head you have it may be a little higher.
Any taller tire will help with the gear ratio. HG

We really need more info, especially on the heads. Are they aftermarket or stock. What kind? Casting numbers?

You're well over 400 horse with that combo. My vote is right around 430-450 horse. Take a look at ryan's stroker page and you'll see combo 42 is similar to yours and makes about 414 horse. You've got a roller cam instead of the flat that they've got, your cam is a little lumpier, and your intake is much more aggressive. 450 horse.
