    Rod nut torque (assuming stock parts) is 45 ft lbs with lightly oiled threads.

    You will need the correct interior panels and the larger quarter glass. IMO, No quick and easy way for HP increase. Headers or dual exhaust and four barrel carb and intake and small cam. Also any mid to late 70`s dodge plymouth chilton book should have the factory engine clearances and specs.
