so 80lbs on bumpers thats 160lbs gone im not looking for it to be super street friendly. the fiber glass hood is only a 20lbs loss but everything counts. I wonder how much the back seat and sound deadner weighs?

Well from what i saw its a .030 over 305 with flat tops and a very mild cam with the 650 tuned perfict i pull about 15in of vacume. Same engine In my dads 52 plymouth with stock exhaust manifolds and duel 1.75in exhaust it ran out of power a 5,000 it ran a 15.2 at 91 it had 3.73's spun the tires off the line with posi and the car weighs 3500lbs. Now the same engine in my car it has headers 2.5in exhaust and it pulls fine to 6000rpm i think the exhaust did it.
