In Reply to: Aluminum V8 in e30. Weight is same place as S14 posted by Lee on February 19, 2002 at 18:58:22:

as this is for a short block. I would suspect that the intake and exaust manifolds/airbox/et. al. will make the V8 a bit more weighty. It will also have much higher center of gravity (2 heads - one crank). The effect of moving the CG higher will cause much more front weight transfer in turns.
