5-8 lbs on motor with a compression ratio of 8.2 will produce around 10-10.5 while under full boost. the rule is you want start out with a low compression motor and let the blower do the work. as for horse power output, the right cam, good breathing heads 100/125 hp extra is easy to get.  check out weiands web site they have very detailed info on all the blowers as well how to set up the motor,cam,carburator, and the  very important timing specs.
