    Basically the 1st time I helped a buddy work on his 390 and we had to take the cast iron intake off. Never again LOL.

    very good point, but you can drop a lot of frontend weight simply by installing an alum intake. cast iron intake is WAY heavy. did a quick search and came up with 77# to 83#.

    Power nation tv did an episode recently that they built a 390, they weighed the cast intake on a scale and it weighed 80 pounds, it’s insane, I guess because In a way the intake is more part of the cylinder heads on an fe than most motors.

    fe weighed about 650#. add alum intake, heads and water pump and it drops to around 560#. that's in the same neighborhood as a cast iron 351W or sbc. not too bad.

    The LS engines copied the cathedral ports from the FE. Today there are very expensive, back In the day you could find stuff everywhere. Now to build one like I did back then I'd have to take out a second mortgage!

    Am I the only one who is excited upon hearing the sound of the engine the moment that video started?
