HP guesses?
The biggest issue is the Y pipe.

You can improve that a lot by custom fabrication.
flowmaster Y250300

2.5" to 3" merge Y collector

The cam is fine. Might want to move it to a true "straight up" position
for best results with the shorty headers and single pipe exhaust.

A 1/4mile run MPH will tell you how much power it is makeing

what ever it is you can work it.
