Not to start a flame...but it's interesting that the oft-cited " low-tech, Chevy cast-iron lump" weighs about 450 lbs with aluminum heads. Of course, this isn't the fully dressed weight and does not include radiator and plumbing...whereas the Porsche values quoted are very likely *with* cooling fan/alternator, etc

Nonetheless...still an interesting comparo....
