horsepower question.

hi Im Zach and i have a 350 4 bolt main bord .30 over to make a 355 i have a holley 750 double pump carb and a holley high rise intake to go with it. It has Roller rockers. It has Headers. I do believe it has a cam but im not 100% sure. I found out by checking the vin numbers that it was a 1970 350 with 76cc chambers which came with a 2 or 4 bolt main. I was told it was a 4 bolt main so thats what im going with until i pull the pan. I dont know what it came out of all i know is that it was in my buddys camaro and it ran real fast but it was not the stock motor. It will be going in my 1979 Chevy
C 10 pickup 2wd longbed truck. It has the original heads but has hardned pushrods and the orginal valves. My question is Can you tell me about how much horsepower does a motor like that have? the way it is right now?

Hi Zach. What car is this engine in? Is it the original engine? If not, what year is the engine? Are the cylinder heads stock or aftermarket? These are the things we know to even guess and it will be guess with not knowing the cam specs.
