I would guess your power at around 500-550 hp. I know a guy that just built a 9.5:1 compression 468 with ported 049's and a hydraulic roller cam with around 240 @.050 duration and around 575 lift. His motor was dynoed, and made 550 hp and 550 tq. If this hp estimate is correct, your car should run mid to low 11's.
One question, have you already got the motor togather?
