How much horse power your engine will make is easy to guess if YOU,supply actual air flow readings of your heads from a certified flow bench along with cam specs.intake and fuel management system info,exhaust specs
for the layman,stock cast iron heads and flat tappet hydraulic cam= not much,,,maybe 1 horse power per cubic inch plus or minus a little.
If you donot have a good exhaust system then less
I'd not run a car on a chassis dyno without a driveshaft loop..
yes chassis dyno's add realworld to it.. and have a place, but not everyone has 500+ bucks to play at one.. or the repairs when it(the dyno) finds the drivetrain weak link.. and it will..
