440 torque 408 horse by not really doing much. No Cam Swap just the normal goodies.

Go to Car-part.com and do a search for the LQ9, pick a 2003-2006 Caddy Escalade and then do a search in your area or a nationwide search. If you find one from a repuatable yard they will usually have the readings on the engine before they pulled it out of the vehicle. Try and get everything you can that came off that particular vehicle!
