Re: Quarter mile time?

Depends on the condition of your engine/driveline, best guess would be a high 14 low 15 possibly

Re: Quarter mile time?

not to mention exactly what a 'mild cam' is ...
your stock stall and std ratio diff will be a big drawback

I built the 351 1000 K's ago. And the box is over 300,000 K's old as with the diff. I dont have the cam specs handy but it is borderline with needing a higher stall.

Re: Quarter mile time?

without knowing more I agree with the other guys, high 14s to low 15s

Re: Quarter mile time?

With your tall gearing and standard stall your 60 foot times are probably slower than a standard 351, you may not regain that difference over the quarter. Dont be suprised if it runs slower than stock. I guess low/mid 15's.
If its a daily driver I'd look for a 3:1 diff and a 2500 stall and you should get mid to high 14's

An XD 351 stock (but in "4V" ie 4 barrel 162kW configuration) with 2.77 gears and FMX auto and 60 series tyres was 'officially' reported to have done the quarter in 15.8secs....
