1040 (50th percentile) on the SAT.

163 on the LSAT. 

The only thing that changed was my motivation.

Off the subject a bit:

For the elderly in the thread, I thought I would provide a conversion table for pre-1995 and recentered scores.

Does anybody take the ACT anymore?

Midwesterners?

I know they take it in Iowa.

Iowans do a lot that I wouldn't do though, like live in Iowa.

I'm from the Northeast and I took the ACT as well as the SAT. A big chunk of my (public) school did so because our guidance counselor told us it was a more broad based measure. My scores were essentially equal.

I think the (old) SAT is a lot easier to study for. If you take any of the January SAT's, they take almost all the questions (or atleast passages) from old tests and put them on there. So if someone went back and did all the old tests, they'd pretty muc be good to go.

So I think there might be some correlation, but not significant enough to be able to predict your LSAT score.
