well, you have to remember, that prior to mid 73, that was gross hp, what I've seen it's about a 22% power drop going from gross to net hp..
72 had 170 hp/283 torque, 73 had 101 hp/223 torque.. (yes some loss was due to going from 8.9:1 compression to 8.0:1 compression, but the major loss was due to rating the engine differently.)
