Horse power

I'm just asking for rough estimate on horse power. I have a 406 sbc with 11:1 compression. 64 cc camel hump heads ground out to 202. In a 64 impala 4 speed with 336 gears? 650 dumple pumper carb. With headers and split plenum aluminum manifold. Steel crank and 453/221 453/230 cam....Idea's?

Re: Horse power

i think cam and heads are too small. I'm guessing it runs out of air by 5000 rpm. I'll say 370 hp.
