Estimated HP ??

I found a 454 with this equipment in it and was wondering how much estimated HP and TQ you guys would guess it to produce ??

Also Ill be using it for a 4 x4 that will be driven regularly (not daily but close) but I love power at the same time, wondering if this might be a bit hot for my needs as I am concerned about reliability ?

Thanks !!
