    SBC = ~650lbs
    BBC = ~800lbs-850lbs

    So sit on the front of the truck and there is your difference! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    You can get the weight of the BB down closer to a SB by running headers and an aluminum intake. Then the difference in weight is less than 100 pounds. I don't know how I ever survived with a SB before my 454!!! The power difference is incredible!!!
