that would be pure guesswork.. they offer several cams/heads... if you knew exactly what you have , a quick call to them would give you a pretty close estimate of HP.. they do extensive testing with their stuff....your next option is to call your nearest shop with a Dyno and put it on the rollers... get a pro-tune while its on there.
