My current motor deal is a Dart M 9.8 block iron with Merlin 345 iron heads.

I`m thinking of switching out the iron for AL. what do think the weight savings will be? or should I find an ARIAS and let it rip? I`m interested in staying with Blown Gas at this point but with an ARIAS someday would work with what I want to do in the next few years where the AL BBC wouldn`t... As always thanks for the input! Tom

I weighed my heads and the built up afr305 were 44# each and the iron stock heads were over 90# each. I think it might have been 92# but I don't remember.
