Need some help with questions

Ok so I bought a 1986 camaro and it has a 305 etc anyways I bought a 1976 Chevy 350 from a c10 truck and it has a mild cam, eddy performer rpm intake, 4bbl holley 600 carb, headman headers, and crane roller rockers that i think were upgraded and are 1.6ratio instead of 1.5 but they dont say on them and they are just a gold color.
Anyways so what do you guys think it is making hp and tq wise? I know these motors had 165hp and 235tq so whith an average mild cam as idk the specs on it, and the other stuff what would you guys guess it would push also it has 25k on rebuild but internalls are stock replaced except cam.
Thanks

Ok sounds good lol, as long as it's over 230hp im happy, and yes it has headman headers, and they are short tube i think going back to exit in front of wheel and i dont know if the catalatic converter is gutted or anything so id assume it isnt.
Also what do you mean the deck was to zero, and the carb will be tuned once the motor is in the car lol it's going in within the next 2weeks.

A good estimation of output can be made by running it through the quarter mile and record the mph. Then get the weight, most drag strips have a scale or go to the recycler or local dump to get the vehicle weight. Then use a calculator to get the hp.

More calculators from Wallace Racing.

Its not you,its the other drivers that allow you on their track.Would you want some 16 year old kid aiming his car at your $50,000 just restored 1955 X?
Its the same when you get advanced licenses for faster cars,the other fast drivers help you get in.
