JFairman, I like that. I do not see any reason why not to be perfectionist in this regard.

Even just a few grams of diff rotating at several Ks must make some impact on performance.

I remember some old mechanic a long time ago who completely blueprinted his Opel engine. He achieved almost modern-day fuel Economy when he was done with that engine.

I also remember how some of the old guys said, there was no reason to port a turbo charged engine, you could just crank up the boost...

I am guessing a guy like the Swedish Micke Sven spends time on blueprinting, balancing and matching.
