OK, silly question - Usually easily found on the net, but where can I get detailed, even basic specs on this 1973 450SE engine?

Why, Thank you, Danny - Just what I was looking for.
Tell me - with that displacement, and only 8/1 Compression ratio, doesn't this engine scream out for a nice, conservative turbo installation?
