you are looking at roughley 450 hp at 5800 rpm and 510 to 515 of torque at 3500 rpm . those specs are from the new 454's i have no idea how mutch the older ones are . i would half to say that the old style would be pushing roughley the same numbers

The stock 454 i pulled out of my 74 truck was pushing 360 hp and it was stock everything. It had 150,000 miles though so it was a 390hp motor new im sure.
