After all the b.s. of the other engine swap into my camaro, we said to hell with it, and are now in the process of putting a 454 in her! I bought the engine and tranny from big block don, and this is what i know...it has a sig erson cam, its bored .30 over, its got small pop ups in it, its 11:6 ratio rockers, enlarged push rods, push rod guides, and 60 psi oil pump, 1.86 exhaust valve, headers, heads are hi-flo 454 heads that have been magnifluxed, shaved the deck height, double valve springs, those hi temp hi density valves (im having a brain fart, can't remember what they're called!! but they run $20 per valve.) We're thinking we may have to cut out part of my fender wells to have access to the plugs, and maybe cut a hole in the hood for the height issues. Which is okay, because it will have a hoodscoop before long also.
Here is where I need some help, to satisfy my curiosity...does anyone know where i can go online to get the specifications, info bare - stock from the factory, standardized
on this 454? its a 454 out of a 1976 truck, and i am wanting to find out stuff like what the horse was right out of production, etc etc the basic stuff, and I don't know where to look to find this stuff. If anyone knows how to track that stuff, id appreciate the tip.
Thanks in advance
