I am not new here, its just been a long time since I have been here. I can't remember what my user name or password is nor do I have that old email anymore etc. So no, this is not my first post.
That being said. Yes, I have searched, and googled. I am looking for a more definitive answer.
What does a (caged) fox chassis stripped 4cyl car weigh on average?
I am thinking about my next car build. A lot of the mountain driver folk like that 80s corrola because it is light weight. I was thinking, well hell, the 80s fox is pretty light weight too, but most are v8 cars. The AE86 (corrola) are just a light weight live axle car- to me nothing special aside weight. You can put in whatever motor you want in a fox. They are kind of swap whores (not as bad as a fiero, but still...). Want to know what the weight would be.
Also, I am trying to figure out the weight of that 2.3 motor. It is a bit ambiguous here.
Which engine weight am I looking at for the correct weight to compare for motor swaps?
The car is going to be intended for balance and handling. 300 whp 4 cyl. Yes, I am aware of the sacrilege because v8 options... But for now lets focus on weight please.
Going through this catalog and see how much waaay cheaper it is to build this car than - like, anything...
Any help or even threads (that I can't seem to find) would be great.
Thanks in advance.
