Zero to sixty in just under an hour

Or at least it seemed that way. I'm trying to get some numbers together so I can compare them before and after the power project. Actually, the 0 - 60 times were 18.91 seconds, 18.57 seconds, and 18.77 seconds.

Does anyone have numbers that I can use to compare with my 100% stock 351C 2V? Do those times seem about right for my engine, with no improvements except for new points and plugs and oil?

An old friend is coming for Thanksgiving, and I want to take him for a spin in the convertible, so I'm holding off on pulling the heads and such until after his visit.

Should be about 10 seconds faster.

Sounds like a bad 1/4 mile time, not 0-60. I think a prius will beat you.

Those numbers are abysmal! My Mach 1 in all her lackoffunctionalbrakesandbadlytunedcarburetor puts 0-60 in well... pretty quick! Maybe I should actually get some times for you. But I want to say it is ~8 seconds or less.

You've got that right, 71Mach351. Actually, I think a Schwinn will beat me. Big Grin

But it should definitely be easy to see a big difference between "before" and "after" numbers.

Your 0-60 times mean problems.

is it hesitating or back firing at all, does it smell super rich when you stomp on it.

does it hesitant then start going or goes then hesitant then goes.

any black coming out the tail pipes.

did you do a compression check? what numbers did you get?

is the trans slipping?

is the EGR, PCV, clogged?

Clogged exhaust?

What vacuum reading are you getting off the engine.

something is holding back that motor a lot.
