I'm not sure about HP and torque, but I do know that those engines are DIE HARDS! They seem to run forever....and take lots of abuse. At an old HVAC company I used to work for as a parts driver, I drove an 87 F-150 with the 4.9 and it had 322,000 when I last drove it. The body was shot, not to mention suspension, but it just ran and ran and ran!
IMO, it'* one of Ford'* best engines.
