Thats a monster cam but the alloy rocker covers won't make any more power. This thing would be a pig on the street and will need low diff and high stall.

Carby & inlet manifold will probably restrict the heads & cam capabilities. The header & exhaust combo would be relevant for anyone to estimate the HP

The funnelweb matched to an 850dp, also 3" mandrel exhaust with X member should wake up that cam.

Re: What hourse power do u reckon this 351c will pull

gros16,
Is this a street car, street/strip car, or strip only car?

If its a street car, you only need to down spec the cam to match the other components and it will probably make more power than it's making now rather than spending a heap on upgrading the other stuff to match the cam.

If its a strip car keep that cam and start spending

A cam that would suit the setup that you have would be a CRANE F246 .
