Horsepower?

Asked by Dec 22, 2015 at 12:08 AM about the 1975 Chevrolet Nova

Question type: Car Customization

I have to do a write up about my car in school. I have to find out how much horse power it has I just need an
estimate but I don't have the money to do a dyno test. It is a Chevy Nova it has a 350 small block with 150psi
compressing all around it is a 4bbl carb and long headers it's also straight piped. Does anyone have an idea of
what it might be runnin?. It is mechanically all fine.

It is mostly stock other than the airfilter and headers and sparkplugs the engine is from a 1977 rally Nova. Is there any good mods or parts that could boost horsepower? Also is nitrous a good idea? @kelly
