Power Estimate

Yeah I know.. Two threads in one day about the same car . Anyways.. So my new car has a lightly modded 302 in it, and I'm trying to get some sort or guesstimate as to the hp/tq output of the engine. The engine itself is out of a 90's Explorer, and as far as I know the bottom end is stock. It has either a 600 or 650 4 barrel carb, an Edelbrock Performer intake manifold, aftermarket iron heads, a mild cam (somewhat noticeable idle,) long tube headers ( I think 1 5/8",) and an 2.5" exhaust setup with high flow mufflers. Sorry I can't be more specific. The guy I bought it from didn't install any of the parts.. It was the guy that owned the car before him. I'd love to get it dynoed, but I don't have the spare cash right now. Just curious.. TIA

Really? I was hoping it would be higher than that. And while we're on the subject, any guess at to what kind of tq I am making?

That's what I was thinking. Not familiar with that cam. Those heads are better than most stock ones, but not by much. Better heads should get it there.
