Jimm, without knowing your cam design this is a tough one. I would say that there would be the most improvement in the low to midrange (30-45HP) due to the increased flow speed with a mild gain up top (10-25HP). This is a real stab in the dark though.

Ahhh... that is a little bigger cam than I assumed, just turn those figures around that I just posted and that should be close to what you should expect. Sounds like a real thumper your building.
