Well the newly built aluminum engine is in there. Time to start it up and get the ball rolling.

Here is the difference between the iron and aluminum block:

Iron:



Aluminum:



That's a drop of 77.6 lbs just for the block. That would theoretically drop the total vehicle weight to 3528 lbs. Pretty that's some great progress towards my goal of 3400 lbs.


Next is to install a lower grille block and chin spoiler. And install my Limited Slip diff. It makes winter a bit more tolerable.
