What kind of timeslips w/ smallblocks?

Hey everyone! What kind of timeslips are people running w/ small block V8s now? I have a '70 Buick 350 in my '76 century, not running at the moment but would like to think that I can dive into the 13's somewhere in the near future w/out too many mods. I know guys w/ sbc 350's are doing good, heck, even some mustang guys w/ the old 289's are getting good timeslips! What are you all running? I need some motivation to go out in the garage and work on my car so I can get it running. Need to set the timing on it yet! Thanks!

-Cody

Actually I was a board member there. Nice board and all, but I couldn't stand a few of the guys there so I am no longer a member. Good information on Buicks though, so instead of being a member, I am just a spectator now. That sounds like an awesome idea, I love Buick powered vehicles. I was contemplating on putting a 350 Buick in a ranger or s-10, but I want something with a bigger bed on it so I am shooting for maybe a F-150 or a silverado/or GMC of some kind! Possibly 455 Buick powered! I am just interested in hearing what other folks are running with small block V8 american power!

Thanks again

Hey man,

Na, I do want to hear about other American V8 Smallblocks too. I must say, Firestone, those times are impressive and it sounds like those smallblocks are making some major power! It's rumored that a stock Buick 350 in a skylark('70-'72) is capable of 15's or low 16's in the quarter mile. Not very fast at all, but good at the time for a family car that weighs in at or over 4,000 pounds w/ the driver and or any passengers. My '76 century weighs in at 3,800 pounds, and w/ me it would weigh in at around 4,000. W/ the stock 350-2 barrel buick motor, it should be capable of low 16's I would think. W/ the addition of true duals w/ free flowing muffs, possibly headers, a good 4 barrel carb/intake, and a little tuning and tweaking and I am sure it will be good for 14's, and then w/ some other mods, hopefully 13's!

15.1's with 3.08's on my 383 in my El Camino

13.16 with a 362 (350 .060 over) in my dad's '64 Buick Special.

Both cars are in my photo album.

That has to be nitrous numbers with power to cube ratios of 1.70 hp per cube. claiming 1.42 without nitrous is serious business. ENGINE MASTERS can barely do it in controlled conditions and unlimited budgets.

Anything over 1.45 naturally aspirated is exotic race engine territory, not street driven race cars.

your asking about somthing that dosn't exist. Pontiac and Buick, olds also I think have engines that are the same physical size as all the rest of there engines, so a 455 olds could replace a 350 olds and look exactly the same. there not a big block or a small block.

You're being rather technical about it. Take a ruler and measure a 350 olds compared to a 455, the measurements sure won't look the same. That's where the name "Big block" or "Small block" come in to play.

no, there actully physicly the same size, just like the pontiacs. there compareable in size to a big block Chevy, approx. not really a big block, but not really a small block ither. you may find slight diffrences in size but nothing like if you measured a 350 Chevy, and then a 454 Chevy.
