That’s awesome ...!!
Does this picture show the final weight savings machining?
Now the question... are you going to make these and sell them...?

Tommy,

I like the trimming for the weight savings. Its looking very good!

What other areas did you remove material? How much weight savings did you find?

Not light compared to the original but there may still be the possibility of doing better. I hope so, Olsen.
It’s still a very good job.

It seems many are hoping for this repro Al-based crankcase will be as light as a factory Mg crankcase.

Pretty sure PAG experimented with several Mg iterations before ending up with their final version. I can also imagine the designs that failed during their testing phase.

That’s an advantage only possible with a manufacturer’s typical R&D budget and w/o using customers for beta testing (ouch). Early (also current?) MS Windows computer customers might relate, though with less disasterous but no less disappointing results.

Perhaps the current 30 lb. weight “penalty” is also disguised as a 90% insurance policy against catastrophic engine failure - good practice engineering with CAD tools at work.

Legendary race car engineer Colin Chapman’s approach to lightness was more aggressive. He too had a decent R&D budget plus ....... driver input

FWIW, a fully dressed 3.2 engine is 482 lbs. An early Mg case engine is about 400. Note: the difference is not entirely case weight.
