Don't guess or make something up, find a performance shop with a dyno near you and know for sure.
70's motors are notoriously weak because of primitive attempts to reduce emissions.
a 69 302 with your setup might make 250-275 hp. a 70's or early 80's 302 with the same mods might make 30-40 hp less because of low compression motors.
my dad's 78 Mercury Marquis had a 460 4 bbl and it only made 270 hp but made 375 ft/lbs of torque
