Default Mod list help

I am trying to come up with a rough idea on my HP and torque numbers with my current mods. Now I'm sure that saying each mod would increase power by so much and adding them all together would give an accurate number would be way wrong. A few friends have asked me what kind of horse power my car has and all I can say is "I dont know", and really I have no clue. I dont want to come out and say "oh ya my car has 700 HP" and look like a total idiot. So I just wanted to ask you guys for some help coming up with ideas on how to add the mods together to get a close idea on horse power and torque gains.
Thanks.

I'd say the Pulley alone would be a good 15-20. So my number would be about 25-30. A little more in the torque department because of the pulley again. Say 30-40.

That would be CRANK hp/tq.

So you would be:

225+25=250 crank hp
20-25% less at the wheels depending on transmission age/condition.

hey, that'* just a guess, like DrJay'*. I think he just goofed and left out your pulley. That'* the major power-adder. I don't know for sure what ours do, so I just took 75% or so from the Series 2 known figure.

Maybe one day I'll get it on a dyno and see how good your guess was.
