    How does the weight of the GM engine and trans compare to the BMW ones?

    About 50-75 + lbs due to the t56 trans. But the wgt is near the center.

    So I can keep the good balance w eventual wgt reduction... later

    The iron block st six was a heavy boat anchor 240 hp lolz

    That combo should sound pretty good. You’ll have a fun car on your hands for sure. Projects like this are fun. Have one in mind to start soon.

    It’s always cool to see the ideas people have. From mild to extreme. I have an 01 Ranger that’s my daily for work. 2.3 duratec with 135hp... lol
    Really want to put the 2.3 EcoBoost in with a T56. No one has done it that I have found online.
    Your car is going to be a handful probably. Which sounds like a lot of fun
