I suppose that would depend upon the definition of "tuned up". If GM
was able to get 800 HP out of the Quad 4 during development I'm sure
that a "tuned" 350 (as in tuner transformations) should be able to
easily do that. As for a Stock 350 on street tires? I wouldn't
Many do have the LT1 and are quite the sleeper. ;)
The only downfall of launch times is the steep rearend gears. They may not
tear the rubber off the rims, but a chipped car (ie - speed limit removed)
will easily surpass 135-140. And yes, in a station wagon.
So far best I can find - C&D 95 Impala SS - 15.0
A 93 Roadmaster with a 180 HP 350 - 16.9 (that's the "classic sbc")
A 94 Roadmaster at 16.0
I'd have to guess mid 15's in stock form.
I know I have a magazine with a roadtest, I just can't find it...
