Just a guess, but I would put it at about 300-325.

Why not ask the builder.
Most would ask before they buy.

I would have been a little leary f the builder can not answer the question for you since he put all the parts in the motor.
If you have all the info, there are free downloadable HP calculators/dyno's in the Knowledge Base on this site you can use.

You need to be a little more specific about the details of the engine. How big is the cam? How much compression does the engine have? What casting are the heads? Stuff like that...The engine could make 225hp or it could make 325hp...
