2.9 for vintage 72 capri

Looking for some info. I need to build a 2.9 litre for my next project car.Does any one have any specs on how much horsepower you can get out of a 2.9 fairly reliably. I need to come as close as I can to a 72 Group 2 Capri. They were running 320 horse out of a bored out 2.6 which was about 2990 ccs by the time they were done.8500 RPM. I realize this is asking alot from this motor,but I had hoped for about 260-270. Will be running 11.5-1 Compression. Will be manufacturing my own 3 weber dual throat carb setup.Any known speed parts that could help would be great. Crank,rods etc.Thanks all for your input.

This may seem like an obvious question but why not just start with a 5.0 V8 and save alot of time, work and money? Plus it will still make more power with only minor mods.

it needs a 2.9 to be as close as possible to what it was originally.
