hp?

Thats not enough information to even attempt a guess. Headers? Stock pistons?
Carb and intake? If I had to guess from the info you provided I'd guess around 250-265. 350 engines from the late 70's earley 80's ran very low compression and came with about 185 hp. An upgraded cam and your heads probably add 50-75 hp.

I have stock dished pistons. I had smogger heads but put some double humps on there so it might be running 9:5 compression? Just trying to get a general idea
