My best estimate would be around 250 horsepower. I would back the cam down just a little more.

I came up with 312 HP @ 6000 RPMS & 312 ft. lbs @ 4500 RPMs. If I was going to buzz it to 6K ID think Id use a 500 CFM carb.
Not surprisingly, it doesnt make much for power at all untill about 3500 RPMS.

I'm kinna dreamin up another engine,here.
The closer I get to actually running the Volvo the more dangerous(for the car)a 350 in a 1900lb unibody car sounds.
I'm really worried about twisting the car up or worse,blowing the rear out from under it(you know that'll happen in front of a crowd too lol)
So I'm dreamin up a smaller milder less torquey engine based on parts I know were to get.
312HP thats more than I though,but [email protected] higher rpms sounds more fesable for this car.
The 283 in this theory is one of the good blocks that can e bored to a 301(or so I'm told).
