Default just did a dyno -- curious about top speed

dynoed my 88 a few days ago and i made 214 hp 277 tq to the rear wheels so assuming 15% rear wheel drive loss i have around 250 hp 320 tq on the engine. so that with fender CAI, short headers, O/R H pipe, come cap n rotor, wires thats it and 14 degree timing. so with my 3:73 gears what could i top my car out at and what could i run 0-60 or 1/4 mile. i just wanted to know because my dad was bragging to me how when he was my age (17) he had a 130 MPH mercury capri as his first car, is mine any faster?
