I may be wrong, but that's an awful lot of stall for a blown BBC, IMHO. But that's really not your question. Best thing I could suggest is get the tune to a safe point and start track testing to dial it in unless you can buy some dyno time.

Quarter mile trap speed and ET along w/the other vehicle specs (mainly weight) is as good an indicator of real world HP as most anything. You have enough motor to run your numbers- the question comes down to chassis set up and traction.
