How many horsepower is my 1984 mustang putting out?

I just picked up a super clean 1984 lx convertible with the engine trans suspension dash and rear end from a 1985 cobra. The engine has a larger cam, big 4 barrel holly (i think its a 550), better headers and such, any one want to give me a guess on how many hp its putting out and maybe a value.

No way to guess. Bigger cam might only change the power curve, hedders could give better breathing and the "maybe 500cfm" would be a guess. You need to put the car on a dyno and measure the HP at the wheels.

128 with the 4cyl.
180 with the 6
225 with the V8

But only a dyno can tell actual Foot LBs and or Brake HP, torque to drive wheel is also a factor, take it to a Dyneometer.

Guessing leads to nothing, but you can use a car performance simulator (which works like a dyno), this can be done online after you run some provided tests for your car.
