Re: Alloy block...
<<As for the rest of us, we can only dream!>>
Not I sir!! Are the weight savings worth all the hassle and cost of an
Aluminium block?? What's the total wegith savings?? 40lbs?? Ditch the A/C
and you save that plus some. Get a fiberglass hood and that saves even
more!! 60K for an engine with an Aluminium block sounds abit pricey. Used
S4/S6 engines can be readily had for under 10K and are much more streetable.
Cast iron is a much more durable material than aluminium. One good overheat
and that aluminium block isn't of much use except as a paperweight...
