Smile New Build what HP should I look for?

Hello Guys,I've changed my combo up and is wondering what HP #'s should I look for.
This was a 557 in a stock block w/A heads it made 930 hp @6400 and 813Tq @4800.With thosew numbers in mind I decided to switch everything out and into a A460 block.From there I decided to up the CI to 598.I bought a set of 4.600 diamond flat tops.My Compression ratio is gonna be 14.8 to 1.Heres yhe list

2 pro systems 1050 doms
trick-flow Holmes style intake
Motorsports a 460 heads [email protected]@800 exh.
cam is [email protected]
865-830 on 114 installed 112
4.600 diamond pistons gas ported w/ pin Upgrade
6.800 Oliver Max rods w/625 bolt upgrade
4.500 crower crank
1.75 Jessel rockers
Danny Bee Belt drive
A-460
Pro Shot Fogger set up for 250 shot.
Kasse oil pump

What type of Hp should I be looking for out of this combo?
It's going in a 2650lb MustangII Glide,456 gears,15x15x33MT's Hoping to have a little fun

If you want to see an increase in power, won't you need a cam with an extra 10 degrees duration or so to feed the extra 42 cubic inches? And maybe an extra degree or so of lsa. Or do you want the power to come in at a lower RPM? Maybe the nitrous negates this need. I'm not a pro, so I'm just asking. Seem like asking one of the professionals on this site is in order. At any rate, it must be exciting to be making this step. Best to you and youir project.
