Each piston in the V8 weighs 150 lbs. So that's about right.

I cant imagine that. My v6 never scared me. This car does

I drove my car in the worst ice storm we have had in years. Drove the v6 up hills in the snow. Would I rather have done that in the wife's subaru? Sure.. but it can be done.

Build2 2011 Kona Blue GT. Premium, Brembo Package, 3.73, Glass Roof.

Ouch!

So I guess if my Stang was a 1 cylinder car, it would be 1,050 lbs. lighter. LOL

My V6 was fast and fun, but with the V8 you have to be more careful about when you hit the throttle.

Don't ask me how I know ...
