    Does anybody have,or know where to get, torque/horsepower curves for an older 454 crusader?

    thanks

    Frequently the aftermarket folks like Elderbrock will have stock curves , so they can show you how much "better" the engine is with their product.

    Try the camshaft re-grinders too.

    If someone could provide basic Engine specs: cam timing, valve size & lift, compression, carb size, etc. I have software that can provide the HP/Torque curves, and would be happy to provide.

    thanks for the response.
    i obtained the data from a helpful mechanic.
    i have just returned from picking up my new (old) 7.4l 454 crusader.
    we fired her up in the parking lot-very exciting.
