Default help with what hp im making

I've been running a 406 sbc that is 9.25/1 cr with 10lbs of boost and brodix track 1's with a comp roller cam .575 .575. Now I goin to a 427sbc that is 10/1 cr and still 10lbs of boost same heads but I'm goin to a .644 .604 roller 7-4 swap blower cam! I'm wondering if anybody has a good guess of what power I was making and what I'm goin to b making!! Thanks

Default Not that simple

To get the answer you are looking for you will have to give an average previous quarter mile performance and MPH along with the vehicle weight to calculate your previous combination's power level. once that is known a guess on what to expect from your new stuff will have some foundation based on your vehicle's set up.
Any other path to your answer would require beer and lots of B.S. if you know what I mean.

Well said Bruce! While I appreciate beer and a good bs session (bench racing), usually the results are dramatically different that real world performance......

If this mustang weight was at about 3500# and went 141 MPH it will take about 870 HP to do that, 750 HP if it weighs 3000#. You could do it with a little less and you could have had more than that on tap possibly. The lighter chassis info is not of any use for this answer having no good run on it. The couple more cubic inches might not help as much as you might expect if you can not trap as much air and fuel at TDC to make power with. More compression on a blown set up takes up space that fuel and air could reside to make more power with. The MPH will tell the story when you test the new engine set up, MPH is horsepower period. If you pick up 10 MPH is will be because the combination is happier together, not so much the added cubic inches.
Sounds like it may be fun to drive too. I hope this helps you out with your question.
