SBC 355 Build

Im looking at building a 355 for my 1981 Camaro Z28, Here is what i have picked out, some of the parts i already have;

-Edelbrock Performer RPM Cylinder Heads 64CC #608919
-Howards Cams Retro-Fit Hydraulic Roller Camshaft and Lifter Kit #CL110245-12 (Lift; .500 int./.510 exh. Duration @ .50 225 int./231 exh, LS 112, RPMRange 1,800-5,400
-Scorpion 1.5 Race Series Rocker Arms #SCP1000BL
-Professional Products PowerForce Plus Harmonic Dampers SFI # 90000
-Lunati Street Race Rods 4340 I-Beam
-Ross Racing Forged Flat Top Pistons #90456
-GM Cast Crank

I did a Compression Calculator and my Compression is coming out at just under 10:5:1 with a 0 deck, do you guys think with this cam & compression Im able to run her on 91 Octane?

And any inputs on what kind of HP / TQ this motor can be making?
