Ok guys i just bought a 89 camaro that was a 305 TBI, but was converted to a carburated 350. I was wondering if someone could give me a ballpark figure of HP and Torque.

-350 (block from chevy 94 1500)
-9.5:1 compression
-headers
-dynomax exhaust
-edlebrock RPM intake
-don't know what kind of heads (supposed be descent) they have had valve job done ($400 worth of work)
-Comp Cam
268 lift
218 duration
110 lobe seperation
Not sure what else is need for cam specs
- 750 holley carb

Any guess/prediction would be great
Thanks
Tom

A guess is a guess.. please remember that.. Looking at your numbers I would say 260-270 HP at the engine with 290-300 lb ft torque

As for rear wheel HP and Torque.. I would get it chassis dyno'd

according to the desktop dyno you should be running around 285 horses at 5000rpm and 345 ft. lbs. around 3500rpm.

Thanks guys for your input. i also forgot to mentiont that it has 1.6 rockers (don't know if they are roller or not)Do you think this is a descent street engine? I am hoping to run at least mid 14's. is that possible right now with a 2:73 gear and a stock converter? I will be switching gears and converter when i get the money.
Thanks
Tom
