The Shelby GT350 289 made a legit 306hp and that was with poor flowing heads. I looked up the HiPo 289 cam specs and the valve events are almost identical to the 7122, but the 7122 has a bit more lift. But the GT350 also made that power with a 715cfm carb and 10.5 compression (it had small 52cc chambers). I'm going to assume you're probably in the 9.5 compression range with the 60cc chambers of the GT40 heads. I think all in, you're probably going to be in the 340hp range at the crank. With the C4, that would probably put you around 272hp at the wheels.
