probably 100HP I believe you could potentially almost double the Hp with some money and machine work? maybe even more with blower etc.

check out VanPelts for lots of good specs etc.
Flathead Specifications: 1938 to 48 V8

then google H&H Flatheads or flatheads forever? they build some cool engines.
