    I think it is 80 pounds heavier.
    I left a few things off the front of the car when I put the stroker in. I never used the A/C anyways, and the front sway bar isn't on either.

    It would be a good deal without doing that, and I don't think the price of a carbon fiber hood would justify the extra couple of pounds that you would save over a fiberglass hood.

    Understandable.

    We get 100+ degree days here as well, but not as many....and that is what the daily driver is for.

    I seriously need to remember to save up $$ between mods... so I can get one of them... "Daily Drivers" or "beater"...people round here talk about so much

    yeah... round here it's not really the heat...it's all the damn humidity... some days your balls stick to your legs like crazy glue... and some days it's all nice and nothing bothers ya...

    and well... so far... personally... I think that 408 idea...just erased my Idea for just a Stroker kit...so... from now on... I'll have that as my Goal...

    A 402/408 is still a stroker, just a stroked version of a different LSx.
    The LS2 block (aluminum) can be used with a few minor changes in the harness for a 402.

    But yeah, daily driver...thank the lord for A/C.

    Alot of people go with the iron block because they want to use a power adder like nitrous, alot of nitrous. But if you want to stay just NA, 402 (aluminum block) would be a good choice. It costs extra, I think an extra $1k. But if your weight conscience, that may be the way to go.

    Anymore, it is maybe a $250 saving to go iron instead of aluminum.

    I did it because my original build included boost. Things happened that changed that, so for now, it is N/A.
    Two years ago, it would have been an extra $300 for the LS2 block....plus the harness adaptors.

    That sounds like me. My original plans were a 250 shot of nitrous. However, I never got around to upgrading my kit. And actually, never even sprayed this motor. Its plenty fun to drive NA. And I don't have to worry about melting pistons.

    Exactly.
    It all worked out for me. 11.97 at 117.7 with a DA over 7000.


    More than enough for 10's and 128MPH (at sea level) if I could drive it well enough.
