2.2 Engine assembly with no gearbox, intake or exhaust manifolds. (Politechnic Cam Cover fitted) = 151kg
Suggested lightweight and powerful engine alternatives anyone?

AER's "Mazda MZR-R" (it's a British engine all the way despite the Japanese manufacturer name) weighs HALF that (including turbo and manifolds!) and produces 450 BHP reliably for 24 hours. You won't get it any leighter than this, or more powerful! Cheesy

150kg.. how much was the gearbox?
Either way, I'm not sure that is could be described at "insanely" heavy..
Take a look at these

http://www.team.net/sol/tech/engine.html

Still... some 30+ more than the Douvrin 2.0 they Matra planned to use.. it is listed at roughly 120 kg.

2.2 Murena Gearbox 48kg.

Same link as above but with additional data. Take the Ford 2.3 Pinto at 328lbs/149kgs. This shows that in it's day the Murena 2.2  engine weight was more or less the standard.

I'm also interested - parts which are not visible (carbon radiator guard, underbody guard) + if You are going to make engine cover (which is simply changeable to original one), take this as an order from me. Thank You in advance  Wink

I think I will have one made in Aluminium. I need a custom job with a bulge to accommodate my intercooler (when I get so far).

Hello guys, and it's here... Roll Eyes Grin as we say: "You'll allways have the biggest piece of that cake You didn't wanted to eat..." - I asked my friend who is racing with his Mercedes 190E 2,5-16V if I can take a part on next race on circuit, and what happend? He managed it!  Cheesy Well this saturday is the race, and who will be my competitors? Audi Quattro, Porsche 911, BMW E30 M3, Jaguar XJS V12, 2x Lancia Delta HF and 4x Mercedes-Benz 190E 2,5-16V  Shocked Huh Lips Sealed All cars arround +230PS  Undecided
So what I'm going to do - put off some kilograms and make the suspension harder:
- I changed the wheels to BBS RS 15" with tyres Toyo Proxes 195/50R15 and 215/45R15
- changed all silentblocs of front stabilisator to Polyurethan ones (much more harder = less of side tilt)
- will demount passengers foot-hold, door panels with speakers, el.windows engines, side windows will be changed to plexi glass (but does it make sense? How much kgs it could be in total?)
- removing the spare wheel
- rear glass will be changed to plexi
- engine cover will be made from alu sheet
- set-up of front axle will be changed a little bit more to "A"
- my Spax suspension will be lowered as much as possible
- minimum of fuel in tank

 Do you think that demounting of passengers seat will help so much? How much is its weight?

 I want to make only that modifications, which will be easilly possible to make back to original condition - you all know me  Wink so is there something on your mind what more could be done?
 On friday I will go to circuit to test the suspension changes and new tyres, so I have only today and tomorrow.

 It doesn't look so bad on that BBSs, what do you think?
