Porsche was able to get the wt. of the early 911 engine down to 286 lbs. for the 904 race car by using a lot of Ti and Mg, according to Ludvigsen.

But, my question is: doesn't it seem like the 911 engine design is unusually heavy -- even with all the alloy parts in the stock engine? Why is it so heavy? It can't all be in the wt. of the heat exchangers...
