Default The big Horsepower question!!

Ok, don't ask but you guys all pretty much know what I've done to my engine. Its all in the sig, well at least most of the important parts, and there is an 18page report on it in here. The specs on my custom cam are available on the cardomain page in my sig. Look over it carefully and give me an estimate of what HP you think it'll have from it. Don't be shy, put what you think. Then estimate a Series I with the following Mods:

hypertech thermomaster computer chip
Very nicely Insulated intake
2.5" exhaust with flowmaster muffler and dynomax hi flow cat
70mm TB and SC that have been p&p on the intake sides (stock being 58mm)
2.0" supercharger pulley
Heavy valve springs
MSD DIS-4 ignition
MSD coil packs
160deg drilled T-stat
and a capable fuel system

You said "series I" for the other guy, mine is a series I too. Are you just using that as a name for it?
