What would a 472 or 500ci v8 weigh with aluminum heads and intake?
- I am in the process of building a Locost kitcar Lotus 7 replica. I
really want something that is hopelessly overpowered and scary as
hell "! That is why I am interested in a Caddy 472-500 engine swap. Now
obviously I would like to keep the weight to a minimum, so I am curious
to know what a 472-500 would weigh with aluminum goodies. Also what
manual transmission can handle the gobs of torque a caddy can put out?
I basically want to bring exotic high "$$" sportscar owners back to
reality!! A very very poor man's Bugatti Veyron!!
