Depending on the cam, compression and how much air that carb is getting in there it could be anywhere from 275 to 310 to the wheels IMO. The Edel heads are not the greatest, they are not the worst either. I made 300/325 on a set of Performer RPM heads in my 95 that was just a stock rebuild with an OTS cam and ported Cobra intake.

Not sure what the cam is, I know it not stock but the compression must be high because i can only run premium in the car
