Lol they are quick, and a lot of fun, if you ever get the chance drive one. I hate them but I have to respect the Japanese imports. The make a great car that I respect, when you don't have a 16 year old with a stupid stereo blasting at two am and a fart can on the ass while he's bouncing off the rev limiter. Still won't buy one lol

If the 4.6 has an aluminum block, it only weighs about 25 lbs more than the 2.5. A cast iron 4.6 would be 95-100 lbs more than a 2.5. If they were weighing the engine/trans combos, then they are picking up most of the weight from the 4R70W compared to what ever was behind the 2.5.
