While there are many variables within the items you mentioned, you will have probably around 340-350 hp with around 360-370 ft. lbs. of torque through headers and turbo mufflers.

If you swap out the Micky Thompson valve covers for Edelbrocks you will gain a couple of horses.


BTW, that cam has .480" lift.
