If I understand you correctly, you have the Performer Plus cam and lifters, the carburetor, but don't have the intake?

If that is true, then it will be a very mild 445 (390 with a 4.25 crank) but it will run nice, certainly make a ton of torque. The only issue is that cam will limit you to about 9-9.25:1 compression.

Depending on the heads you have, that engine with the right intake manifold and headers, will likely outpower a stock 428 CJ. However that's where we get to the intake. An Edelbrock Performer RPM, Street Dominator or Holley Streetmaster intake all will do OK, the intake that came in the kit is really not even great for towing on an FE. It's a cork. It's better on other engine families, but even though you are building a torquey FE, an RPM or the others would be better.

I'd also like to see a 750 carb, but the 600 will drive nicely, just down at the peaks.

As far as horsepower, hard to tell, depends on so many things, but I would say with an RPM intake, good headers, 390-400 HP, maybe 10-15 more with a 750. The intake in the kit, 350-360 tops.
