butt dyno would guess about an 8- 10 horse power increase to the wheels. but the main thing is that the car will feel alot more responsive.

Wouldn't the tuner itself give me about 10hp? My guess is more like 17hp with all 3 combined. 10hp-tuner, 5hp- intake, 2hp+much better throttle response and thats what I came up with. Anybody else have any guesses?

Those mods won't make quite that much HP, not even at the flywheel, you need to account for drivetrain loss, which comes out to around 8-12 hp depending on the application.

I agree with what frost said, in addition I'd say your range is between 150 - 156 at the wheels. The power ranges because each car is different, as are the conditions in which a potential dyno would occur, unfortunately there is no way to be certain.

Mods aren't progressive. If you throw juice on your car and get +200 wheelhorsepower, then get a cutout that give you another 10 to the wheels, your not getting +210 whp necessarily.

The sum of the whole is usually greater than the sum of the parts, however usually the power gains of each individual mod are usually exaggerated or already account for other mods.

id say more like 148-150 since the mods are basic.
tuner you have wont give you that much hp. just had a friends actually dyno tuned with his mods being a sri and ported t/b. he ended up at 152. but remember, this is actually his dyno tuned hp for a predator file specific to his car..
the predator will give you a few ponies but the tune in them is for all svt, which each is a tad different, not specifically for your car.
kinda like my predator i ordered. ran it for awhile but something just wasnt quite right. had me pushing 207whp, but my torque was 132 at the wheels. dyno shop i use dyno'd and remapped. we ended up dropping it to 196whp and 150 wtq.
just because a program works on one doesnt mean it'll be all that great on another.
