Probably 300-330hp at the flywheel depending what octane gas you use and where the timing is set. I have a built 289 in a '66 Stang with a little more cam and much better AFR aluminum heads(much better airflow than the Ford GT-40 heads) and I make about 360hp on 92 octane. You lose about 20% hp when measuring at the rear wheels. So 250hp at the rear wheels is probably more realistic.

I would tend to agree with ragman. You'd see perhaps 20 more hp by stepping up to a 650cmf carb, the 570 is a tad bit small for your set up.

If you're compression is under 10:1( I believe flat tops and 60cc GT40P heads make 9.5:1), you're wasting your money on 94 octane! I have a 340hp FRPP 302, 9.0:1 compression, and run 87 octane, 13.7@ 104 mph at 4000ft says I'm not hurting anything.

Other than that, I agree that you are in the 310 to 330hp at the flywheel.

I would guess 250 give or take. But I'm not familiar with the cams and the carburetor numbers. I had two 5.0's an 86 GT and a 93 LX and stock they were about 215.

I would say 240-250 horsepower at the wheels.
