I think you got your engines/years mixed up a little there...

Its stock for a relatively modern truck- which is what I would use to compare it to since that is what you'll be cruising next to on the roads. Go jump in one of your buddies stock trucks and go for a spin, that is about the power you would be feeling with a 400ftlb 292- I would consider that a stockish power level.
