Just got back from the scales
I found a scale at the local Aldi trucking warehouse and weighed my 66. I got 1780 front and 1520 rear for 3300 lbs total. That's with me in it (200lbs) and over half a tank of gas. 54/46 weight distribution is not as bad as I expected, but I haven't added the compressor/condenser for the a/c or the 351w yet either.
I have the RMS motor mounts with the engine as down and back as far as I can get it with the 4r70w hogging up space in the tunnel. EPAS unit is in the dash, and the 8.8 out back is heavier than what came out too. Battery is in the trunk on the R side.
Any thought or suggestions?
I'm thinking the 351w will need aluminum heads and hopefully not be heavier than the 302. Would a fiberglass hood shed much weight up front? The 351w might hit the factory hood I have anyways.
Also, here's a pic of my uncorrected speedo for fun
1966 Mustang 302ci 4r70w, csrp front discs, 8.8 rear, EPAS, Fitech for fuel
