    <align=top>I thought we could compile some kind of chart of the track times we manage to get with the boats, including 1/4 time, mph, 60', then also a quick desription of modifications. If we could make it a sticky, then I could update the top post with the time slips that are being entered. If someone (moderator I guess) wants to put it in an HTML table, that would be real cool. I guess people could just shoot me a pm with the details of the run and I can update the list. If any updates needs to be done to the list, please let me know.

    What's his user name? I'll try to dig up some more precise figures about it, so we can keep the list accurate.

    I'm at the bottom :shock: what have I started..

    My former 80 LeSabre 4 door knocked out a 15.26 @ 86 mph with a 1.99 60 ft. Had stock 70 350 and a 3.42 posi.

    This last weekend my 70 'Cat ran a 15.50 @ 87. Bone stock. One wheel drive. No hope under the sun for a full throttle start. Or anywhere near a full throttle start. :pray: :shock: :sleep: :rolleyes: :Dou:

    What qualifies as a boat? 1st Gen Riv's too small?

    Better add Tom Wildcat Wagner to this. he has 2 that are in the 12's and 11.50's..

    I think we can squeeze a "small" Riv in there too, why not. Please don't forget to add any mods, and the 60' time if you have it etc. The list is coming along nicely, I would also like to hear from Jamyers who has a fresh 464 in his 71/72 Lesabre..

    I know its not a Buick, but it is a heavy Boat!.....

    Headwind of 20 mph gusting to 30 at times this past sunday... and the car ran its best ever of 13.04 @ only 101.23 cause of the wind, Should be closer to 104 without the wind in its face!
    with a best 60ft of 1.83 and 8.25 1/8th at 83.31 with a best 1000' time of 10.82! ..The car definately would have ran 12's if there wouldnt have been the wind ...

    Well, here you go!

    Here's the numbers from my '71 LeSabre when it had the 350 in it:

    Owner -------- Model ------ Time --- mph --- 60'----- Modifications / Options
    James Myers - '71 LeSabre - 16.28 - 85.08 - 2.49 ---- Basically stock hi-comp 350, John O. 750 cfm Q-jet, HEI, open 3.08 rear.

    (For comparison, here's the 1/8-mile numbers with the 350:
    10.57 @ 67.48, 60' = 2.49)

    Since I've had the 464 in it, I've only been able to get onto an 1/8-mile track:

    Owner --------- Model ----- Time - mph -- 60'----- Modifications / Options
    James Myers - '71 LeSabre - 9.68 - 74.22 - 2.3 ---- 464, TA212 cam, DIY port/polished Stg 1 iron heads, shorty headers, 9.2 CR, John O. 750-cfm Q-jet, MSD, posi 3.08 rear. (And not much tuning)

    Now that I've done some more tweaking, my butt-dyno says the 464 is better yet. Need to do something about that 60' time though - I'm thinking of getting a set of small-diameter tires on some steel wheels just for the track to fake a deeper rear gear.

    I can't really fit the 1/8 times in there, but it sure looks like a very nice improvement!!! We're eager beavers to see what happens once it's tuned and taken down the quarter.. For the porting, did you use an air or electrical die grinder?
