Default horse power

i just dropped $1100 into my car. I bought AEM cold air intake, DC Sports 4-2-1 header, Dc Sports short throw shifter, Skunk2 68mm throttle body, Skunk2 intake manifold, Nology hotwires, NGK iridium and i already had 2 1/2" catback exaust. the question is how much horsepower have i gained,by my estimates i thaught i had about 205ish. there is 160hp stock.
