also have a 2,000 hughs stall laying around and a dacco 3,000 but am going with the 2000 stall for the small cam
On a super cheap build with vortec head and that mild cam with a 2bbl carb and stock exhaust manifolds I would expect around 275ish hp. Headers and a good exhaust will bump you a little over 300hp.

If it's just a cruiser and it works well I'd keep the 2bbl. Just make sure its properly tuned for your combo- a purely stock carb will not be tuned right.
