Expectable horsepower?

I recently got my hands on a '98 chevy silverado with a 5.7 vortec in it. I got it for a steal because it didn't work, turns out that it spun a bearing and tore up the crank something fierce, new one was required. While I was busy rebuilding it I decided to go ahead and rebuild the entire thing, and maybe drop in some new parts for a little added "get up and go". I got a new(bigger) cam with the following specs
ADV DUR:262/264
D @.050: 206/210
valve lift:.450/.480
What kind of horse power could I expect from this engine with the new cam?
Further down the line I also plan on adding a cold air intake and headers. What could I expect from that?

Thanks in advance
