How much HP does my mustang have?

I need some guestimations, on how much horsepower my mustang is pushing. It's a 1997 Mustang GT, 5 Speed. They have 215-220 stock. Mine has two new MSD Coil packs. Fresh wires, fresh spark plugs, royal purple motor oil, K&N performance gold oil filter. Spectre cold air intake, B&M short throw, and 4:10 gears. It has mad pull, but I'm only 17 and I've put this together myself but I can't Just roll it up on a Dyno. I raced a 94 5.0 with cobra throttle body, cold air intake, and accell coil packs, and I beat him. Thanks for reading.

at the crank.
a dyno is gonna read 180 at the most. the best upgrade on those cars is a pi head swap. then you basically have a 99-04 power. then from there, you can add cams and bolt ons.

those gears are gonna help you take off and make it more fun though, thats for sure.

He's right, Stuff you mentioned will give you better Performance that you will notice, but it does not give you HP. Many People confuse the Terms HP and Performance.
