how much power?

I'm looking to get some opinions on how much power you think my engine is making. Here a list of my parts. 350 block .40 over, icon forged pistons 4.9 reliefs, eagle 3.750 crank, afr 210 eliminator heads, lunati 60133 solid roller vodo cam. 249/255 duration at .50 and 644/660 with my 1.65 true roller rockers. 750 holley double pumper, victor jr. Intake with 1 inch spacer, motor is sitting rite about 11.1 compression and runs on 93 octance fuel with 34 degrees total timing. Pertronix ignition system and hooker competition shorty headers. Any comments on this or suggestions are welcome. Thanks

On a engine dyno with race gas I would be expecting about 500-525hp. Dont know if you can get away with 93 octane with that combo. Be careful.

this is very similar to my combo, 385cid, DART pro 1 215cc heads with professional port work done, 11.2:1 compression (mine does not run on pump gas, i have to mix 5gal of 110 and 10 gal of 91 octane) i run a howards custom solid roller cam; 251/257 @ .050 .640/.640", 106LSA. howards 1.6 billet roller rockers. 750 double pumper that has been machined and "tricked out" with vic jr intake, hooker super comp full length headers.

i had mine professionally dyno tested and tuned and it came out with just over 560hp and just under 530tq (i would have to pull out the papers to be exact but i think it was 562hp/527tq)

i would expect your's to be similar, maybe a bit less due to the extra work that was done on my heads, carb, and intake.

Yes I'm sure my shorties hurt me but its tough to run long tubes for me on my 3rd gen camaro. Plus the exhaust on those things is tough to run. Is yours race only? And any suggestions for my any or does it sound like a good setup to you? Its getting a 150 spray soon too

it's a street/strip car, when it's nice out i acutally drive it about once a week. it's been done know for about 3 years and i've probably put about 2-3k miles on it.

the weight with me in it is just over 3500lbs, but i have done things to lighten it up a little bit, so your's may be heavier.

my previous set up, which dyno'd out at 500hp/490tq, with 3500 stall and 4.10 gears ran 11.60-11.70 in the 1/4 @ 116mph (average), and 7.30-7.40 in the 1/8th @ 90mph (average).

my current set up which is the 560hp/530tq, with 4000 stall, 4.56 gears runs 11.0-11.10 in the 1/4 @ 122mph (average), and 6.90-7.00 in the 1/8 @ 95mph (average).

i have contiplated spray, but i dont want to scatter the $8500+ i have into the motor.
