Thumbs up 454 engine swap


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

There are some good places on the net to find out stock numbers on Chevy engines...

Here is one i found - didn't look too much into it, but it looks like it might have what you are looking for
