Talking how many horses?

I have a 40 over 302 block, with 40 over trw flat top pistons, x303 cam, fresh gt40p heads, aluminum eldebrock performance intake, aluminum underdrive pullys, a/c and smog delete kits, just curious to know if anyone has ran this setup or know around how many horses it will make?
