Totally normal with stock cams of course depending on the Dyno, tune, fuel type etc. Some will sneak more power using race fuel.
Unless you're way low like 275hp at 25psi with something wrong then assume 10whp per psi of boost. Local weather conditions such as heat and humidity can take a lot of whp away. That's a sloppy rule of thumb. Cams and flow increases over stock can throw that rough estimation out the window.

I ran an otherwise stock head with just 262's for around 8 years. I didn't notice a huge difference. I still have that engine half way into a Corrado build that's stalled.
12yrs later I'm doing a "last hurrah" build and trying the other way. Upgraded springs, titanium retainers, bigger cams. It won't be frequently driven, more of a seasonal-weekend toy. Just about half way into the engine works now, slow going hobby work at night.
If you're already up and running then don't be afraid to mix it up and try different things. You can always switch back. Not everybody likes the same engine characteristics...
