How much power can I reasonably expect to get out of a 401 Buick Nailhead?

This will go in a street driven car and must run on pump premium, 92 octane or less.
"How much power"? Plenty? That is about all I can come up with, the motor near stock will haul any rod PLENTY fast. Tons of torque, no need for steep gears. I have a mild motor in my 65 Gran Sport and it did 13:88 at 99.99 in the quarter and that is no light car.
