Mine are 400 with a 2ND gen Hemi alum heads & intake. It isn't no lightweight even with aluminum heads & intake. Iron Mega block though. Car sits just right.

Maybe with my Gen 3 in my 70 Road Runner, I could get away with 350 lb spring?

Do you have glass fenders and bumper and hood? My G2 is also all aluminum...its light for a big engine.
