Default 302 hp?

Hey just wanted to see if you guys would be able to give me a general idea of where I'm at in hp and torque.
I've got a 68 mustang with an 88 mustang engine in it
The engine is carbureted, it has an edelbrock performer low rise intake, edelbrock 650 cfm carb, and a cam
Cam specs:
duration intake/exhaust: 290/290
Dur. @ .05 int./exh: 220/220
Lift int./exh.: .495
The rpm range is 1000-5700
Everything else is stock
Also I have a 9" rear end with 3.50 gears and wide tires in the back
Thanks guys!

Welcome to the forum. Unfortunetly you'll have to add a few more pricy parts like heads to get anywhere near 300whp. Your probably only making about 240 at the crank.

Yeah I wasn't looking to go all out on this engine, just some small things.
I'm going to end up buying a better engine, maybe a coyote.
What do you guys think about torque wise? You think I'll be able to take out a 350/370z in the streets? I know in the long run hell get me but what about right off the line?
