Default My low horsepower question

So im sitting here debating to myself what horsepower I am pushing. The bolt ons I have are K&N cold air intake, steeda UDP's, JBA X pipe, JBA cat back. So just curious on how my horsepower at the crank I have? And I thought it would be a good idea to have a sticky telling people what to expect (est.) with individual bolt ons. What do yall think?

There was one of these up until like a year ago. The problem is the enormous amount of variables involved. The only way to tell is to get dyno'd.

Flywheel..... meaning the 260bhp that its rated at. We all know dynos that we would use normally measure rwhp. He wants to know what the engine is crankin, not what he wheels are throwin down. Your probly 285 give or take 10 depending on how strong your internals are, hwo good you oil is and the temperature of your area among other things. Deffinately over 250^^^
